I was told DS was 6 1/2 pounds 2 weeks before he was born. He was 9 lbs, 9 ounces. Either he gained 3 pounds during those last 2 weeks, or the scan was off.

Hmmmm.... dd1 was a 42+ week babe and was 9lbs6oz at birth. There were pregnancy complications that resulted in several u/s. I think the 40wk u/s put her at about 9lbs so they were pretty close.
|To me, that sounds pretty off. If she was 9lbs at 40 weeks and had over two more weeks to grow, you'd expect her to have been between 10-10.5 lbs, that's a whole pound off.|
My neighbor was just induced at 37 weeks because the doctors were telling her that the baby was already well over 8 pounds and would be huge if they didn't induce her early. Baby was born and was 6 pounds 1 oz.
