If baby is longer, especially long legs, he's going to be "bigger" on u/s - they measure and then the machine spits out a weight guess based on length - but it's always the same ratio, kwim?
Yeah, it's a pretty big margin of error. I think for mine they measure around the waist or something because my weight/length doesn't match up. Both DD2 and this baby measure right on for weight and a week ahead for length. DD2 was only 6lb 13 oz but 21 inches at birth. So far this one's looking similar. I'm ok with long skinny babies

I'm sooooo glad I get to escape for my massage today. I've never had one before
