I was at a wedding last weekend. The girl I was sitting next to, told me that her baby's weight was 95 percentile and length was 5 percentile. She showed me pictures and the baby just looked plump but cute. I think if they were concerned, your providers would have told you something was up. I would say everything is okay. Good luck.xx

Hey Jean so happy for you that the time is getting close. Don't worry about that if your dr said its ok just take it easy. Almost all babys are born with there head slightly bigger than their body parts. My baby had a big head when born but then in a few weeks things started to grow all normal and balanced. Don'tget worry because then your BP will rise :) just get lots of rest and this is the time that your baby will start to grow faster and gain its weight.

Yeah, I'm due in Dec. I so hope you are right! I don't wanna worry about stuff like this! (There's enough to worry about with possible HELLP/pre-e looming around the corner at any given time!)

You are due in December, right? (can't see your signature now) After about week 35, babies put on all of their fat and weight. They gain about a 1/2lb a week after that. So your baby is not to the "filling out" stage yet. I think most/all babies measure that way and probably all will have big head measurements compared to the body. Next time you get an u/s, ask the tech about it. Mine are always really nice to share what they know, if they have time (most take the time to anyway).

Ok...but he should catch up and things should fix themselves? I didn't know if this meant that he would be a "little person" (not sure how else to put that) or have downs syndrome, or if this was a normal thing.

Hey! In my experience your baby will have a big head and small legs. My daughters measurements were like that to and when she was born the dr said that those measurements were a little off but she was still soooo cute and she's 8 weeks 4 weeks corrected now and she's caught up to her head! By 5 weeks 1 week corrected she looked like a normal baby lol before she looked like a cute little bobble head. Everything will work out! I'm so excited foir you can't wait till we hear your news!

baby's measurements

Postby jean » Sun Aug 20, 639262 11:24 pm

We had an ultrasound a few weeks ago, and baby was measuring a week ahead...but some of these body measurements concern me..his head measured in the 90th percentile, whereas his femur was in the 17th....
Does this mean I'm going to have a really out of proportion baby with a big head and small legs? :(
