Babys weight at 28 weeks Rss

Hi all, just curious if any of you have had growth scans at 28 weeks and what they estimated your baby weighed?

I'm a little terrified as my baby at 28 weeks and two days appeared to be weighing about 3 pounds which they said was fine, but when I look online it says they're meant to be 2 pounds or so! I have another scan at 32 or so weeks as well so will be interested to see then. I've barely gained weight this pregnancy.

I was originally due on the 8th of the month but due to a dating scan I'm now due on the 30th however baby had 'caught up' before the 13 week scan, midwife says that they don't change EDD's though.
If midwife said it was ok it probably is - all Bubs vary in weight ie my some was born 2.8kg but another bub in my mothers group was 4.4kg. Thee is a percentile chart they use at birth to track their growth and both Bubs were on it so it shows how much they can vary.

Also you have another scan so you can check then but seriously if you are worried call your midwife and ask to come back sooner.

Regarding the dates 2 days won't make much of a difference as Bubs on average can be born 2 weeks early to 2 weeks late ie between 38-42 weeks. The 40 week mark is just an estimate
They pretty much come when they're ready I get that smile . I've had GD for both of my pregnancies #1 was 7lb 15oz at 1 week late so hoping this one isn't any bigger as I was diagnosed much earlier although WAY more careful this time. Scan will be in the next week to see how big he is at 32 weeks smile When I saw my specialist they told me 7lb 15oz was huge... I know plenty of babies MUCH bigger from non GD pregnancies so thought that was a decent averageish weight lol. smile
Now weighing 5lb 1oz at 32 weeks
hi at my 28 week scan (two weeks ago) this baby was weighing 3.5 ish pounds. Now fundal height at 30 weeks puts it 3 weeks ahead. I know for certain that I have big babies, my first two were 9 pounds 6 ounces when they were born at just over 37 weeks. Don't worry. My midwife said the only thing they worry about with big babies is GD.

38 weeks and 2 days

Both of my pregnancies have been (diet controlled) GD pregnancies. My first was 7lb 15oz at 41 weeks. I have a feeling this one will come early but didn't anticipate this baby weighing so much already. Fundal height at 32 weeks was 35cm so 2-3weeks ahead I think? I had the scan the following day where baby weighed 5lb 1oz which was estimated to be 1-2weeks ahead from memory.
