My wife is due to give birth to our first child in just over 5 weeks time. She has always been worried about the potential size of our offspring, as she is only just over 5 feet & 8 stone - and I'm 6'3" and 14.5 stone, and has had visions of some gigantic baby!
Anyhoo, we were at the midwife clinic last week, and they did all the usual checks etc, and everything was fine. We come home and look through the booklet of her pregnancy record, and check out the growth chart. She was a bit alarmed to notice that the current estimated weight of the baby is already over 6lbs - what with over 5 weeks to go, she's a wee bit concerned!
Just wanted to ask anyone who has recently had a wee one, if their estimated foetal weight was a fair reflection on the actual birth weight, and how accurate it was in the end?
Thanks for any info.
