Just got home from my dr appointment and everything went good! My doctor said I had a little bit of protein in my urine, but that's all he said about it...I assume it's not a big deal? I have no clue actually. Baby is head down! I only gained 2 lbs this month, which brings my total to 7 lbs! I'm so proud of myself considering I gained almost 40 with my last child! The baby weighs 3 lbs and 10 oz and I'm due September 24th, so I'm 31 weeks and 3 days. Anyone else know what yours weighed at 31 weeks?

My little man weighed in at 4lbs2oz at 30 weeks... dunno if it's possible but he graphed OVER the 95th percentile

I have a little protein in my urine too, but they aren't concerned too much.

How do your doctor's weigh your babies?! Is this done via ultrasound???

Mine has not once told me what baby weighs. Although, during an ultrasound a while back we were told baby was in the 75th percentile.

For me it's done by u/s and they measure the baby's abdominal area.

Genevieve was 3lbs 11 oz at 29 weeks. My little chubby baby. <3

for doing baby weight - to get the most accurate weight - they measure several parts of baby on u/s - head, Femur, abdomen in two places, arm etc. then the u/s machine does the calculations and gives a baby weight. Sometimes they do it based just off the belly - however the belly usually measures a little larger so typically they like to off set it with other measurements
