Big Baby?

Hi all!
I had an unexpected ultrasound on Sunday, when I would have been 26w1d pregnant. We are having a girl. The tech said that she weighed 2 pounds 1 oz. already! Doesn't that seem really big for 26 weeks? Everything I have read in books and on the internet says that she should be about 1.5 pounds. A 1/2 pound seems like a big difference this early! Any thoughts? I'm just nervous to have a huge baby to deliver, haha!
BekahS responded:
I honestly wouldn't be concerned. Ultrasounds are not extremely accurate with measuring weight. With my first pregnancy they thought I'd be having a 6lb baby (yay!). Well she turned out to be 7lb 9.7oz. Haha. A bit off...
jlynnpaine responded:
I agree with pp, the ultrasounds are not very accurate on measuring how big they are so try not to stress about it.

I agree with the pp. It can be off by as much as a pound. There have been quite a few ladies on cafe mom that I have read with the size of baby that early as well. There is a gal who is like 29 weeks and her baby is measuring to be 3lb14oz! I have seen that a few times as well. Could be the u/s is off or it could mean your baby is not going to be a low birth weight baby. Best wishes

Like everyone else said. They can be off by much as a pound. It is also just a guess based on measured averages.

I am five feet tall, and my doctor that I had with my daughter said that she weight about 9lbs. when I was 34/36 weeks along and she said they gain about a lb a week after that....I was scared that I was gonna have this enourmous child that would weight 14lbs (ridiculous, i know!) but when she came she was 7lbs. 10oz. and (c-section baby) So she was perfect! If I would have had her vaginally she would have weight a little less. I wouldn't stress out too much over it!
