    In my opinion they are very inaccurate, DS was supposed to be tiny and was 7lb on the knocker. DD was supposed to be big and she was 6lb 13oz.

    I don't think they're accurate in my case, I had GD also and scan showed baby was 50 percentile - but when I actually had him he was 25 percentile

    Scans are hugely inaccurate in determining the weight of a baby http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23132481

    I can't say anymore because I'm still raw about DS 2's birth, suffice to say arm yourself with as much knowledge as you can. Stick with scientific evidence rather than anecdotal and be aware of the real risks as opposed to the perception of risk.

    Default Apparently baby is in the 90th percentile!

    Mine was accurate, or maybe not?

    Had a scan at 34 weeks with my son. Was told he was already 3.3kg. He was born 4.85kg at 40+6. I'm thinking he probably weighed more than 3.3kg at the 34 week scan.

    Not necessarily - they do have a fast weight gain in those last few weeks of pregnancy, especially with yours being overdue

    Agree. And also a technique that sometimes measures correctly and sometimes doesn't means that, by definition, it's not accurate.

    1.5kg over 7 weeks though..... Quite reasonable.

    Yeah, I've found the scans to be very inaccurate. With DS they were so certain he was underweight and too small for dates they kept me in hospital twice out of pure concern. I disagreed with them, and eventually argued my way home told to rest. At 39w exactly on my check up they said he was still measuring too small and we should be on alert.
    DS was born 39w4 and was 9 pound something. He was huge.

    They told me my son would be 7-8 pound, he was born 5 pound 2. I don't trust the size measurement thing, but that's just based off my experience.
