Yesterday i had a scan and the doc estimated her weight at 2.5kg. Said she's slightly above average but nothing to be concerned about. But I am. I have GD so I'm very aware of her getting to big. Does this sound big?

No, and don't get worked up about your baby's size. I had a growth scan at 34weeks and was told my baby would be 4.5kg at term. She was born 2.5kg at 36 weeks and I highly doubt in 4 weeks she would have gained 2kg.

No I don't think that sounds too big at all.
On my fetal growth chart (I had a 25 weeker so had that to monitor her weight for first 15 weeks) at 34 weeks the 10th percentile is 1.9kg and 90th percentile 2.7kg.

I had my 34wk growth scan on Monday just gone, they told me she was measuring 2.4kg approx & would be an average weight baby =) so your 2.5kg sounds about right to me! I had one with my son when I was 34wks & they told me he would be just above average & was born weighing 4kg (9lbs) so not too big, but a bit bigger than average =) I wouldn't worry at all

I was told at my 32 week scan that baby is measuring 2.5kg. They're predicting over 4kg at 38wks (when I have a c/s booked) so will see if they're right...

All those scans are estimates anyways there not concrete facts so please don't worry your baby is weighing fantastic my son was born at 38 weeks 2.6kgs and was told at the 32week scan he was 5kgs so thats pretty conflicting evidence

Good to hear all these stories. People say the scans can never be exactly accurate but people scare me with the GD ill have a big baby. But I keep my levels under control so hopefully everything should be pretty average

We were told that DS would be tiny based on my 34wk scan and he came out at 7lbs (3kgs I think). Not small at all. From the stories I've heard they are quite inaccurate.

My baby was estimated 2.3kg at 34 weeks. And they guessed 3.3kg at 37 weeks.
She was born 3.390kg at 39+2.
I too had GDM very strictly diet controlled.
Most growth scans are 500g over estimated in my experience.

I was told dd1 was going to be tiny and was sent for a few other scans & monitoring she was born at 41+2 weeks weighing 3.09kg
