    Default 75th percentile, large or not?

    Had my growth scan today and I'm 29+4 weeks, bub is breech :/ and the technician said bub wasn't too big but is in the 75th percentile..that sounds kind of large to me? Also we found out we are having another girl

    In terms of percentiles 25-75 is the average range (the middle 50%). So 75th percentile is just within average.

    I would say 75% sounds perfect

    My son was in the 95th percentile and he was 4.75kg when he was born. But also was 11 days overdue and emergency c-section. Sounds like 75% isn't too bad probably average.

    75th percentile sounds perfect my baby girl always measured between 75th and 95th percentile.. It's not anything to worry about, I think it's pretty much the norm these days..

    And down the track, they all sort of even out anyway, my girls pretty average in height/weight now

    Congrats on having a girl!!
