I was measuring I think between 30 and 31 at ny 30 wk appointment. So far, so good.

The way she's been going bonkers in there today, though, you'd think there were 2 in there.

I had an U/S yesterday to check placenta location (was low lying at 20 week U/S) and she estimated baby girl to be 2lbs 14oz at this point...I am 29 weeks today.

No u/s since 20 wk.

I don't give much merit to the fundal height measurement. It can vary so much depending on your height and weight prior to pregnancy as well as how baby is laying. Additionally, if you see different drs, they won't all measuring exactly the same, every time.

I know I have had times where I supposedly shrunk and then grew a lot throughout the pregnancy.

At 24 weeks, Peyton was 1lb11oz and William was 1lb12oz. I go again on the 12th. It surprises me that they measure up with singletons but I guess they slow down in the later weeks.

I was measuring 6 weeks ahead at the last appt.

IDK how much baby weighs...I have an ultrasound tomorrow but it's an elective not at a doctor's office and they won't tell me anything "diagnostic". I wish I could know. But at my appt this morning my fundal measurement is right on target. Oh and unrelated but my midwife felt around and she thinks the baby is head down, when I was thinking breech. I think he's a really strong boxer because I thought those were kicks down there, haha.

my next ultrasound isn't until october (it's a 3d one!!), but at my last measurement, i was a week ahead. that was at 25 1/2 weeks. at my last sonogram they told me she was 12 whole ounces, but that was so long ago, i think 20 weeks? she's definitely bigger now

At 27 weeks they measured him at 2.5 pounds and said he is big. I have been told their measurements via ultrasound are very much a rough guesstimate because its hard to get an accurate weight that way. So I don't take it too seriously. I do feel like he's a big baby but I would probably feel that way with any sized baby in my belly

No U/S since 20 weeks so I have no idea.

I do know I have multiple friends who were told that were going to have big babies after being measured at their last ultrasound and all of the babies came out very average sized.

My next ultrasound isn't until Sept 9th. I will be a little over 30 weeks and my doctor said the baby should weigh around 3 pounds or so. Of course the ultrasounds can be off too.

No u/s since the 20 week one. Supposed to get one at 32 weeks. They don't really tell me the fundal height unless there's a problem. If they're not worried I'm not worried.

I had my perinatology appointment yesterday and they did a pretty thorough ultrasound, and told me that Little Bradley was weighing in at 3 pounds 3 ounces and was at the 49th percentile for growth! I'm just happy that he's doing well with the odd assortment of medications that I have to take for my Crohns.
