I was just wondering if anyone has been told how big their baby is. I know ultrasounds can be totally off, but at 24 weeks, they told me our baby was 1lb6oz. My 25 weeker was 1lb13oz when born so I guess that's right on track. They are really making me worry though because they keep commenting on her getting too big from my diabetes or being too small from her birth defects so they are really watching her growth.

How far along were you and how big did they say your baby was?

I have an u/s on Tuesday to measure my fluid and baby's growth so I will let you know then...although I'm very skeptical when it comes to those sorts of measurements. I was told over and over how small my DD was going to be. She ended up being 7lbs 13oz. Not exactly huge but definitely not the "6lbs or under" baby they kept telling me about.

The regular OB I go to never tells me the weight. When I saw my tech friend, she told me he was 1 lb 8oz at almost 24 weeks. I think it just depends on who is scanning you. Cuz after they do all those measurements, the weight is listed on the final screen they have...or maybe it's just certain machines that have that summary screen, I dunno.

No one mentioned weight, but I can look up test results on a website through my provider and after my 19 week ultrasound all the measurements were on there. Her head, legs, arms, feet, etc. I had to look up what the abbreviations meant, but we figured it out.

Yeah at 19 wks 6 days I asked and she said approx 15 oz so you sound very normal don't let them add extra worry!! I'm sure you've got enough! Baby has so much love coming at it from all directions it will grow just right!
