    Hoots - Hope bub gets to bake a while longer. Good that you've been discharged and can rest at home.

    Lindsay - the estimates I was given of weight came from an ultrasound. They measured various things including head and abdomen circumference, and femur length, this all goes into some calculations which estimate weight.

    Like Chook I get my measurements taken at the hospital - both bub and I were measuring "on the small end of normal" at all scans. However at my last 2 midwife checks I have gone from measuring small to measuring over-size. I haven't had another scan of bub though, so not sure whether he has also ballooned...

    LyndsayWA- dr turner never mentions mine or bubs size either, so I don't know whether his machine allows him to measure it or not... Mine has only been measured (or mentioned) when I've been sent down the road to the specialist ultrasound place (can't remember the name) for a scan (19 weeks, and then 34 weeks to check whether my placenta had moved up). Im sure that if Dr Turner was concerned, he would very definitely mention it to you, but next time you are there, I'd jump in and ask him (quickly, before he runs off to call the next patient! )

    is this your first baby? When I was pregnant with DD, everyone told me I must have my dates wrong because I wasn't big enough...when I went to yoga at 7 months, they all said "7 weeks?"...ummm no, 7 months. This time, they are of course saying "wow, you are much bigger than last time"...

    LyndsayWA - my last 3 visits my OB told me my little one was HUGE....when I asked what that meant he said she was measuring around 3.5kg and looking to be quite long (at 31 weeks!!!) kinda wish I hadn't asked for the measurements now but most OB's will tell you if you ask them. They are just so used to doing this that they forget us first time mums actually want some information.

    :-)

    Wow cheekynumum you LO is a big girl. My little girl was 2.8 kg at 36 weeks and they told me she is average size which we were pleased about. Better to have a big healthy baby then too small.

    At the end of each scan my ob shows me where bub is sitting on a graph that shows his growth curve. It's slowed in the last couple of months (he's gone from always being just above the 50th percentile to now being below), but Ob is still perfectly satisfied that he's growing fine, and was quick to point out that his measurements are not always 100% spot-on either. In fact he had a bit more trouble this time getting the abdominal circumference.

    I haven't thought to ask about baby's weight. In fact no one has weighed me either, not even me for a few weeks! And I've only had one ultrasound since the morph scan, and it was just a quick one. OB and midwife do some quick checks and say yep, everything's fine, and I don't give it another thought...I guess I have just had enough bad news from them over recent years that "everything's fine" is like a dream answer.

    My doctor normally tells me after every scan bub was 2.5 kg at about 34 weeks and she said its normal I worry more about them saying something is wrong with bub as in heart etc every time I go in

    Yes I don't get weighed at all either LittleSunflowers & I don't own scales but I did weigh myself at my mum's over Xmas and I'm up 15kg - eek...although as DH pointed out, totally within the average range.

    When I say that bub measures small, that comes from hospital scans (we've had a couple of extras, most recently 36wks). But in terms of my own measurements - measuring small until recently & now..NOT - that comes from the midwife measuring fundal height.
