Re: 38 week ultrasound- how accurate is the weight estimate?
My Peri told me nearly exactly what my son would weigh when he was born via planned c-section at 38 weeks, at 30 weeks 6 days. He said he would weigh 8 lbs at birth and he was 8 lbs 1 oz.
So I REALLY think it depends on who is doing the ultrasound. Clearly my peri knows his stuff. I am not sure I would trust just anyone with telling me the weight of a child for purposes of inducing though.
Should add that my peri didn't tell me that my son's lungs would be slightly immature at that gestation. So I guess my peri isn't perfect. Darn!
