Anyone know how much a baby/fetus should weigh each month?

when i had my ultrasound at 20 weeks for the anatomy and gender scan, baby weighed about 13oz.....doc appt today at 24 weeks and doc said baby probably weighs about 1.5 lbs.

just wondering if any of you know what is average per month?

thanks.

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!
