At my scan today they estimated baby boy to be 3lb 6oz at 29+5. My eyes nearly popped out my head, I was expecting about 2lb 6oz!! Am I carrying a fatty or does this sound ok? I must be ok, as they were happy with my stats but I'm shocked!! I dread to think what he will be at 40 weeks...I guess I'm better off not knowing lol xx

B was 3lbs 1 at 28+3 which was quite big, no idea how much they put on a week though

S was 4lb 3 at 30+6. I think at that stage it's about half a pound gain per week ish?

So if its roughly half a pound a week till the end, that's another ten weeks making him another 5lb, making him roughly 8lb 6!!! Eeekkk....C was only 7lb 1, and that was bad enough!!!

Jemima was 2lb 12oz at exactly 30 weeks and on the 50th growth centile. If you followed that centile to 40 weeks she would have been 9lb 12oz and about 10.5lbs by 42 weeks. But all these things are averages, it varies from baby to baby.
