I just had a two night hospital stay due to bleeding issues. (Placenta Previa) I was 32 weeks and 1 day when I was admitted. On that day we had an ultrsound. The tech told us that the ultrasound machine they were using is the latest and greatest and is very accurate. A few weeks ago we had an ultrasound done at the same hospital and that tech told us the same thing. They both told us the machine was accurate for the baby's weight, give or take a half pound. This last scan measured the baby at 5 lbs 2 oz. All other ultrasounds we have gotten we were told weight was correct within a 2 lb range. I was just wondering if anyone else has had ultrasound on brand new machines have been told the weight is accurate within a 1/2 lb? How close was the weight estimate to what LO actually weighed. All along we have been concerned that the baby would be small due to my fibroid issues. If they are accurate, it makes me feel a bit better about the situation should I need to deliver early. The doctor told me, the bigger the baby the better they tend to do if delivered early.
