Hi ladies, at 30 weeks, how much does your baby weigh now? Mine is now 2kg, isn't that too big?? How much will he weight at birth at this rate?
Honestly, all babies are different. Did you OB say anything about it? How did they measure that? Ultrasound?
My baby measured 3 lbs 12 oz yesterday and I will be 30 weeks tomorrow. She is in the 80th percentile. However my other daughter measured so small at 20-28 weeks that they thought she had intrauterine growth restriction and she came out 10 lbs 3 oz. I put little to no stock in what they "say" she is measuring. They can be off by 16 oz in either direction.
@Adaline'sMama - standard there are only two ultrasounds here in the netherlands - one around 11 weeks and again at 20 weeks and that's it. We had one extra at 13 weeks because we opted for the NT scan. So, its been 12 weeks since I've had an ultrasound! I wish I could see the baby but I think it is also fine this way. The midwife is so good with her hands and I kind of love that she roots around all over my midsection with her warm hands, kind of smiling as she goes, as opposed to cold gel and the u/s technician's wand! I have confidence that the mw can feel what is going on. Plus she laughs when the baby kicks back at her hands :)
I'm having an ultrasound in about 3 weeks, to see how big this baby is, I'm really looking forward to it! DS was 10lb 5 oz, so I'm really hoping this baby is smaller. I look much smaller and have only gained 21 lbs. so far. I don't feel like this baby is as big as DS was either. Really hoping for a smaller baby so I can have an easy VBAC! I'll update after my ultrasound in a few weeks!
I don't trust ultrasound weight measurements any longer after going through IUGR concerns and frequent ultrasounds. He always showed small on the ultrasounds until the last two when he showed a huge increase in size. The ultrasound the day prior to his birth showed him as 7 lbs 2 ozs, and he was born at 6 lbs 4 ozs, which was still well above the threshold for IUGR/SGA.
I do love my midwife this go around. I've been measuring perfectly, and she also agrees that this little one is currently on the smaller side but well within normal. LO will be the perfect size for his birthday :-)
