Re: 38 week ultrasound- how accurate is the weight estimate?

My youngest was accurate. I was told a 7lb baby and had a 7lb 7oz baby.

My sister's middle child was way off. She was told an 8lb baby. Small for her. Weight was going to be the deciding facor of a home birth or repeat csection as her last baby had been 10lbs 5 oz. She was happy with an 8lb estimate and went for the home birth. She had a 10lb 13oz baby. So almost 3lbs off.

A friend was told she was going to have a big 8lb baby if she went 40 weeks so induced at 38 weeks. She had a tiny 5 lb baby. Again around 2-3 lbs off.
