    Default Ultrasound update-33 weeks

    Sorry for posting irregularly, but I do try to read.

    I've had more ultrasounds than I've like due to placenta previa, but I had one today that let me know that my placenta's moved out of the way and that my LO is growing like weed. They estimated his weight at 4 pounds 9 ounces!!!

    I'm afraid he's going to be a big boy!

    Way to grow! And awesome that the placenta has moved out of the way!

    They usually gain about 1/2 lbs a week during the last couple months, so I'd say you'll be in for at least an 8 lb-er. But I wouldn't trust the U/S weight guess TOO much. I know people who were told the baby was over 9 lbs, then when it was born it was less than 8.

    True! I'm expecting a fairly big boy. DS1 was 8lbs 5oz and DD was 8lbs 13 oz. I forget how far along I am and was surprised to hear how big he could possibly be!

    Yay for a good update...glad to hear your placenta moved .
    My oldest was born at 33 wks 4 days and weighed 4 lb 12 oz. I figured he would have been big has I carried to term. I wish I could remember what they said he weighed via u/a just days before. I think it was around a lb more than actual. Sounds like you're right on target for this babe to be in the range of your other 2.

    I wouldn't worry too much about what the u/s said. I find they are wrong as often (if not more) than they are right. That being said my trainer at the gym tonight told me he was born 7.5 weeks early (so 32.5 weeks) and was 6.5 lbs!!!!

    That is great news about your placenta! What a relief.

    I can't give you any reassurance about having a small baby. DS was 6 lbs 8 oz at 35 w 1d!! He would have been over 10 pounds at term they told me.

    Woohoo that your placenta has moved - great news!!

    As far as weight, I would be a bit worried too although like others have said, it isn't that reliable. I have a friend who was induced early because she was supposedly having a 9 pounder and he was like 7.5 lbs. Go figure.
