Re: Anyone know how much a baby/fetus should weigh each month?
I had a scan at 22w6d and the baby weighed 1 lb., 6 oz. at that time.
Do a search for "fetal growth chart" on google and the first site listed has a comprehensive chart by week. (Sorry, we can't post websites or names of websites here.) Of course, these are just averages... AND u/s equipment is notoriously off when it comes to estimating size and age. (Just ask around... you'll find women who were told their baby was going to be 6-7 lbs. and the kid ended up being 9+ lbs.!)
For 24 weeks that chart says that the baby averages 13.81 inches long (crown to heel) and 1.32 lbs. Sounds like you're on track!
