Hey ladies! Just wondering for fun what kind of outcome everyone has had with their babies birth weight compared to ultrasound weight measurements. I had one today at 39 weeks 4 days and they said 8lb 3 oz on my baby boy! Not to worries just curious

Re: Weight measurements vs. birth weight

  • It really depends. I've heard of them being like 2 or 3 lbs either over or underestimated. They happened to be pretty dead on with my LO, but I feel like you never really know for sure until they're born!

  • I didnt have a recent one but at 37wks they estimated her to be 6.5 and expected her to be born at 9 to 9.5. She was 7lbs 13oz.


  • I had an ultrasound at 35w1d. They were both est. to be 5lb 11oz. I delivered them at 35w6d and they were 5.10 and 5.13. Pretty spot on for me.

  • I didn't have any ultrasounds during my pregnancy, but the day before I went into labor I had an appointment with my midwife and she estimated that the baby was just under 8lbs. My daughter was born the next day at 7lbs 14oz.

  • I had an U/S at 32 weeks because they were concerned about her size. They estimated her at about 5 lbs at that point and she was 7 lbs 1.1 oz when she was born at 38 weeks and 5 days. Our U/S was definitely off.
