What was your little one's weight at the level 2 ultrasound? I'm not big on trusting u/s for weight but after my u/s I had my appointment and I measured exactly the same externally and internally.. 26 weeks.. Babe was supposed to average 12 ounces and is right at 24. I'm not worried or anything of the sort just curious..

They wouldn't tell me...I guess I have to wait for the Dr in a couple weeks.

Hmmm I had a level 2 US today and doc said baby weighs 1lb 9 oz. She said that is in the 60th percentile. I am 23.3 weeks. Are you sure ypur doc said 12 oz not 12 inches?

Oops, that was actually at 21w. Baby A was 14oz measuring 21w; Baby B was 1lb measuring 22w and Baby C was 12oz measuring 20w4d.

You can find the average being from 12 ounces to 1.2 if you look around enough but the u/s is notoriously wrong on weight (says the mom who allowed her to herself to be induced because it was "the biggest baby they'd ever seen!" and he came out a whopping 7.15 ounces..) My midwife did start talking about growth scans at 32 weeks though because last month I was measuring one week ahead and now this month three weeks ahead.

Not sure what sense it makes since they can be over a pound off!

You're absolutely right about them being off a lot. When I went in for my scan, as I said, they wouldn't really tell me what the weight of the baby was or even if I was measuring...they just said that scans can be up to 10 days off in either direction in weight and due date. So...I guess it's subjective to the tech at the time. The good news is that you're a BTDT Mom so much wiser than before. ;)

At 19 weeks my baby was 11 ounces and measuring pretty much right on target for my due date.

With my DD they induced at 39 wks cause they thought she had IUGR and was like 4-5 lbs... She was 6.14 lbs! So yah U/S can be wrong as far as size
