My first was 8lbs 8oz at 40 weeks, and was measuring "big" (70-85th percentile on most u/s) in the 3rd trimester. She was a bit big, but not huge and not as big as they were expecting.

With my 3rd they told me at 35 weeks she was already 7lbs5oz and would be huge. She was born at 37 weeks and only weighed 6lbs14oz so they were pretty far off on that one.

I'm glad they're keeping a close eye on him but at this point, they are just making estimates on the size and apparently consider 1-2lbs in either direction an "acceptable range of error" (duh, I mean, most babies ARE between 6 and 10lbs at term, may as well just tell us all they look to be about 8lbs!)
