Hi ive been for another scan today due to too much fluid and big baby
Firstly baby weighs at moment 5lb 4oz im 34 weeks 1 day roughly how much Weight do they gain in last few weeks
And scanner said babies head was right down and had a hard job measuring head although his head is measuring 4 weeks bigger,
On jy maternity form it has eng in the boxes and underneath says seen on scan does this mean that babies head is engaged
But my cervix is closed
Any info would be grateful thanks x

Hi Donna, Although baby is big........I delivered one of mine at 34 weeks and he was 6lb 12 so he's not huge! Eng will mean that it's engaged.
As you are past 33 weeks they won't worry if you deliver any time from now, and they might induce you early!
Hope that helps x x

Hey hun the gain roughly about half a lb per week at the end. I had a scan at 37+5 and she was 6lb 10, c section at 38+6 and she was 6lb 13 so estimates were about bang on however she was the tiniest scrawniest baby lol she still wears some of her newborn and 0-3 months stuff now and is 23 weeks tomorrow lol.
