Last Ultrasound - UGH!

Baby is measuring 8lbs 15 oz with a week and a half left to grow.

Really hoping he decides to come just a bit early.....like tomorrow.

It will be interesting to see how much more he grows...or how off the u/s measurements are! I never feel i can trust them that well, especially when baby is so big and squished in there. Here's hoping he comes for your soon!

Yeah, I'm really hoping that they are over-estimating here. The smallest measurement for the ultrasound had him in the 26% (Femur Length) and the largest had him in the 98% (Abdominal Circumference). That shows a huge discrepancy....so I'm not sure what that means. Dr. didn't mention it, so I'm guessing it's fine.

Hopefully the measurements are a bit off but with a week or so to go, he won't get too much bigger...fingers crossed!

Sounds like you are growing a healthy baby in there!

Has doctor given you any ideas based on what he feels from your belly and not using u/s? I know my doc has been pretty much right on about birth weight for DS#4 and #5 based on feeling baby in my tummy.

Holly - as you know Robbie was a preemie and they were only off by 2 oz and that was 2 days before he was born! They had him at 4lbs 14oz and Robbie was 4lbs 12oz. Of course they say that they can get a better weight prediction on small babies then big ones.
