Baby Weighing At 8 Months Pregnant
I am 5 months pregnant, and my baby only weighs 8 ounces. Please tell me if this is normal and if not tell me what I need to start doing!
Do not get too: concerned about fetal weight right now, unless it fails to improve by the third trimester. Fetal low birth weight (LBW) is detectable and treatable starting in the 2nd trimester. Be sure to not smoke cigarettes, use drugs or drink alcohol. Take your prenatal vitamins religiously and eat nutritious foods (carbs, proteins, dairy, fruits and veggies) in healthy portions and do your daily walk. ...Read more
If you're pregnant or planning to get pregnant, there are many things you can do to give your baby a healthy start: Regular prenatal visits along with laboratory testing, ultrasounds, prenatal vitamins and immunizations (like the flu shot and whopping cough booster). Now's the time to eat healthy, stay hydrated, and ...Read more
20weeks 4days pregnant. US showed baby weighs 1lb 2oz and measuring at 22weeks. LMP on point so no way he's older. Will he be a big baby?
Too early to say!: at 20 weeks how large a baby will be. I wouldn't worry too much at this point, the estimated weights are just that - estimates - and the baby has another 20 +/- weeks to go. Likewise with EGA (dates) - 2nd trimester ultrasound is generally considered within +/- 2 weeks, so your 22 weeks and 20w4d overlap. Good wishes. ...Read more
20 weeks 4 days pregnant. Told baby weighs 5oz. How bad is this, what to do to increase its wgt? Already started out over wgt and put on 25lbs
Depends: Your dates may be off. Growth restriction is pretty rare at this gestational age. Is this your first scan? I would get a follow up in several weeks. If growth is normal then it's probably that your dates are off. This is if course assuming that the baby's anatomy is otherwise normal. ...Read more
I'm12weeks pregnant can it harm baby to lift something that weighs 4 kilograms?I was in a market buying some products to eat.
Doubtful: I have have taken care of kids of jazercise instructors that continued to teach class up to the week of delivery & never had any issues.I wouldn't advise lifting a 20kg bag of whatever because it would be awkward & strain your system.However, 4kg is unlikely to be an issue. ...Read more
I'm 25 weeks and 4 days pregnant my baby weighs 1.2 kgs does this mean she'll just be a big baby or is this a health risk ?
Needs monitoring: Larger than average babies are a concern although they may be perfectly normal. Don't jump to conclusions at this early stage because estimating weight can be very imprecise, but it is something to recheck as you get farther along. ...Read more
At 21 wks 3 days pregnant anomaly scan, baby measures HC 19.9 cm and weighs 482 gm. with 158 bmp. Is the baby measuring small? Is the growth OK?
Normal: All of those measurements are within a normal range. It is actually a little too early to reliably judge rate of growth, but so far so good. ...Read more
Am 32wks 4 days pregnant. My baby weighs 2200g now.Is this a normal weight in this gestational age? Or underweight?
Normal: That weight corresponds to almost five pounds which would not be small at all for 32 weeks. ...Read more
I'm 34 weeks and 5 days pregnant my baby is measuring 31 weeks and 1 day an weighs 3pds 14oz. What do you think my Dr will do when he sees this info?
35 weeks pregnant,had a growth scan and everything measured on time and correctly.The fluid level is good but baby only weighs 4 pounds 13 ounces bad?
Probably not bad: Sonograms are not very accurate at estimating the weight of an unborn baby. If you are healthy, eat a well balanced diet, have been gaining weight and have had an uncomplicated normal pregnancy and your counts of your baby's movements are good, there is little cause for alarm. Another growth scan with amniotic fluid index BPPand estimated fetal weight in 2 weeks may be all the reassurance you need ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
