Weight of baby?

Baby is taking up all available space in your belly. Baby showers and buying things for the nursery are on your mind. Childbirth classes, baby will be here before you know it!

I wouldn't really worry about it...My dr freaked me out too with my second son saying that he hasn't grown at all in the last month and he will probably be less then 7 lbs...Well, the next day I gave birth to a healthy 9 lbs baby :) Dr can be way off....

My DD was born at exactly 32 weeks and was 4lb 4oz, so if you go by that your baby is a bit small but it does not seem that concerning.

That being said, they really are not that exact with US, they just induced a friend of mine because they were afraid her baby was big. A couple of weeks before they induced they said he was almost 9 lbs, well he was 8lb 8oz when born so they were at least probably a pound off.

Hey maybe it's an excuse to eat more ice cream, I know I would've taken it as a sign, LOL (hope I made you smile)

I don't trust ultrasounds to tell you the weight of the baby, to many errors for me to trust them (when it comes to weight anyways).

At 22 weeks they told me she weighed 1lb 3oz and at 26 weeks they told me she weighed 2lb 2oz both in the 58th percentile.
I'm pretty sure this next month she will only gain about a pound tho, I mean I think the doubling has stopped.

You're so close to perfect I wouldn't worry about it, they can't really tell.
