What growth percentage was baby at 20w U/S?

Ok so does anyone know what growth percentage baby was at, at 20w U/S? We had ours today and Adelaide was only at 56%. U/S tech said that is average and normal. Well to me that seemed a bit small esp for my kids. Kenz was 8lbs 4oz, JJ was 8lbs 4oz and Nate was 8lbs 14oz. So when we picked Nate up from my friend who just had her baby boy I asked he what % he was in at 20w. He was in the 87th% and was 8lbs 3oz at birth!! I have always had a feeling that Addie will be smaller than the other 3 but wow, I think she is going to be quite small. 6-7lbs. That will sure be nice. I can't wait till December now to see if she is going to be small. Hopefully she wont have some huge growth spurt on me and be huge like Nate was. Also at this point with the other 3, you could tell they were big with big chubby cheeks. She looks so small compared to the other 3, I can't wait to get moved and be able to compare the U/S pics (They are already packed)... I'm so tempted to open the box and compare now. lol.

My doctor didn't mention anything like that- just said everything looked great on the u/s. Sorry I'm not more help.

The tech didn't say anything to me about a percentage, but did say I was measuring right where I should be and that the baby weighed about 11 ounces (this was on the 5th).

All look at her!!! She does look like a little baby on those pics. And her tiny little head awwwww RJ had a nice size head lol if I can find my pic of RJ I will put it up. But she didn't give me a percentage but she said he was bout 1pound. Oh and that was at 19 weeks.

I was 19 weeks at my u/s and the baby ws 9oz. I didn't ask about %s but online showed that to be a normal size.

I fully expect a small baby since my husband was small and has always been slim and is 5"11. He was short when I met him in middle school but had a major growth spurt in high school.

Olivia was 6 lbs 15oz and came almost a month early so I think she would have been a much bigger baby if she had stayed in long enough.

At my 20 weeks ultrasound my OB told me that the normal weight for a 20 week is 12 to 14 ounces. My little girl was 13 ounces.

Dunno if that helps.

Hee! I love the "#1" picture. :)

I don't know about %wise, but I do know that my due date is officially 3 January, but baby measured at 20+0, which is smack on my EDD of 31 Dec. My babies tend to run small -- the boys were on either side of 7 lb -- which is roughly 25% at birth, if memory serves me. I'd think the 8 lb range would be roughly around the 50th percentile, not the 80th.

No percentage for me either. The tech and doctor said everything looked good. At 21 weeks I was 12oz I think.

That's what I'm hoping for, a normal size baby, which I think is about 7lbs or so. I'm hoping any ways. Would be a nice change from my oversized 8lbers. ;)
