Went to the Dr. yesterday...

I had an u/s done yesterday and they weighed the baby. I'm 33 weeks today!! The nurse said the baby weighs 4pds. 9oz right now. Now, I know he will put on about a 1/2 pound a day the last couple of weeks...or at least that's what I was told. But my question is does 4pds. 9oz. seem in the right range for a 33 weeker? Thanks for everyone's help. I hope everyone has a great day <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Re: Went to the Dr. yesterday...

I found some information that might interest you.

This week your baby weighs about 4 1/2 pounds and measures 17 inches long. By now, she's probably head-down in your uterus - most babies are at this point - although she may continue to change positions. Her skull bones are still pliable and aren't completely joined, to ease her exit through the birth canal.

Moms, you may notice that you feet, hands, face, and ankles have become quite swollen. This water retention (referred to as edema) is often worse in warm weather and late in the day. surprisingly, driking more water, not less, will help your body retain less fluid - so drink up.

Well, I already know I'm having a small baby so I dont know why this weight surprised me. LOL..in a way I wish I could "grow em big"..haha
