I'm not sure how much they gain in the last few weeks but from 32 weeks till birth they are supposed to double in weight.
I had my last scan at 34 weeks and the error margin at that stage was +/- 330g and this number gets larger the later the scan is done so their estimate of 6 pound 5 oz is just that - an estimate... but that is pretty small.
Bubs gain about 200g a week. Hope this helps you calculate you bub, this means that mine should be around 8lb 8oz!
The rate of weight gain for a fetus in the last month is anywhere from 1/2pd (about 250gms) to 1pd (about 500gms or 1/2kg)) per week.
Again, there's a big variation in conversions and the estimation at scans can be off by 1/2 kg so she still may only be about 7.5 pounds! Big difference hey?
Hope your birth is a great experience. Just think, you will see your beautiful little girl soon! I can't wait to meet my baby!
I just want her out soon so i can see her and hold her and admire what i have created.Good luck to rest of you ladies.Enjoy your pregnancies.
At 34 weeks they estimated mine is 5pound, I'm having fortnightly scans till bub arrives so will be interesting the estimate Vs actual!
