    Default C-section/baby weight!

    Okay so I'm going in for c section on the 13th will be 39 weeks and baby has always been on the smaller side
    Measuring at 34 weeks 1.9 kilos
    Then at 36 weeks 2.2 kilos
    So basically what I'm asking is has anyone had a baby at 2.2 kilos at 36 weeks and when they came out at nearly 39 weeks were they over 2.5 kilos do you think she will be over 2.5 kilos at 39 weeks by the looks of how much she has put on over the weeks or do you think she will be under and need to go to care? Have another scan on Friday and will be 38 weeks to see what weight she is then but I can't get my mind at rest not knowing until then any advice or help would be great
    Thanks

    Jessica181 I had my first DD at 37 + 6 by C-section and she weighed 2.4kg. she was smaller than the prem babies at that time and did not need to go into special care. She was just a tiny baby. I was never told her size throught the pregnancy. Try not to worry about the weight. Good luck on the 13th.

    I had DS at 36 weeks and he was 2.3kg and was fine and didn't have to go to special care. He grew like crazy on the early months so I think they make up for it.

    My DD was born at 39 wks via c/section and weighed 3kgs. Op, you would be surprised at how much they 'fatten' up by birth, and try to use the scans as a 'guide' not so much as an 'absolute' and you will feel more positive about things.

    All the best with your upcoming birth!

    DD1 - 3.1kg at 39+5 (emergency)
    DD2 - 2.7kg at 38+2 (elective).

    Try not to worry, as they can all be so different. DD1 nearly had to go care 12 hours after she was born because she was still vomiting fluid up, and they wanted to monitor her, but thankfully she sorted it out herself.

    DD2 developed jaundice on Day 4 (I told them Day 3 she had it (long story)) and she had to go under the UV lamps for 18 hours (in my room).

    I have another friend who's bub was 4 weeks early and was bigger than DD2, but she still had to go to special care.

    All the best...
