Baby ultrasound measurements

I'm no medical expert here but I fully believe that ultrasound measurements are always an educated guess. My physician thought that Charlie was on the bigger side from about 30 weeks on so she monitored like crazy. I'm glad she took the precautions she did but always reminded me that the ultrasound was always off by one or two pounds one way or the other. Her final guess at my 37 week appointment was around 6 lbs, he was born a week later at 7 lbs 6 ounces.

I wouldn't be concerned with the measurements. Your doctor knows what to look for and will let you know if there's anything to be alarmed about.

    Totally with you!! I never really paid attention to the measurements they told me because I had already heard that they are often WAY wrong.
