Week by week pregnancy size of baby

Common Questions and Answers about Week by week pregnancy size of baby


1257629 tn?1269489511 As you said you were only 20 week pregnant and you were rushed to hospital and had contractions. Generally, the chances of survival for a 20 week baby are very less. A 20-22 week baby can survive only when treated well or with extraordinary medical intervention. The survival rate of so premature babies is very low. Your doctors must fail to provide you proper treatment.
Avatar f tn My first pregnancy ended that way. Mine was a blighted ovum. I found out at 12 week ultrasound when I had an empty sac measuring 7.5 weeks... I had no bleeding or cramping to warn me either.. The positive sign is that there is a fetal pole so if it is viable by your next ultrasound, there should be an heartbeat. They generally do 48 hour HCG tests with this. Where they test your blood for the HCG hormone level twice over a 48 hour period.
Avatar f tn is figuring you are 2 weeks ahead if you have not even had an U/s yet. When you have one in Aug., that should give him a better idea as to the size of your baby, and perhaps your due date could be changed based on that. I know mine was w/ my firstborn...
Avatar n tn this is my second pregnancy and my stomach seemed so small btu the past week, it grew big overnight. size of the belly means absoultely nothing. relax i would say. oh and the second ultrasound i had showed the babys limps bigger a bit. still shorter but normal.
589762 tn?1330210735 I measure right on track I guess for 36 weeks (by the dr measuring my tummy) so there is no concern of an overly large baby but I just remember having an ultrasound done with my daughter and them telling me what her weight was going to be....Do they normally do an ultrasound near the end of your pregnancy?
Avatar f tn Hi ladies I wanted to know if the size of your baby while pregnant can affect the gestational age
Avatar n tn Hi everyone! I'm still trying to figure out what week of pregnancy I'm in. I had a complete miscarriage Feb. 19/07 and then ovulated on Mar. 5/07. I got my BFP on Mar. 17/07 so I'm still trying to figure if I'm in the 4th week or 5th week or what. If anyone could help that would be great! Thanks!
1432741 tn?1300202363 As these blood vessels form, the heart begins to pump fluid through them, and your baby's first red blood cells are created. Your baby is about 7 - 9 mm or 0.27 - 0.35 inches in length, (approximately the size of a grain of rice), and weighs about 1/30 of an ounce - less than a breath mint. Your baby's brain, bladder, tongue and esophagus are all developing and transforming, while his eyes are moving to the front of the face and his tiny eyelids are forming.
427258 tn?1266448842 I say try not to worry about what other people say and enjoy your pregnancy and growing baby! I think it's incredibly rude for people to comment on the size of a pregnant woman's belly. As if we aren't self-conscious enough during pregnancy! I hope others are more considerate in the future!
Avatar n tn Research has shown that if you see a heartbeat at 6 weeks of pregnancy, the chances of the pregnancy continuing are 78%. A heartbeat at 8 weeks increases the chance of a continuing pregnancy to 98% and at 10 weeks to 99.4%. So things could still go wrong, but as long as there is a heartbeat, the risk of miscarriage decreases as the weeks go by". I hope this gives some peace of mind to all of you who have seen a heartbeat! kierstynsmommy, I know, you have been so unlucky!!
Avatar n tn I thought everyone was different in uterus size, even up to the end of pregnancy. Wouldn't a 6lb baby need less room than a 9lb baby? Could he have meant smaller than average? If so I wouldn't think it's a problem. If the doc didn't order or perform a sonogram then everything's probably ok. Besides she could have a MAJOR growth spurt over the next few weeks. My first pregnancy I was small until the mid-late part of the 8th month.
1645527 tn?1309712121 My doctor has me due on July 12th but the sono gave a due date of the 5th. So I'm one week ahead of my original due date. I told my OB I was putting my due date as the 5th and he said ok. I go by the babies size especially in the 1st trimester. Congrats!
Avatar n tn How accurate are ultrasounds at gauging the age of the baby? At my 20 week ultrasound, my baby was estimated to be a couple days younger than previously calculated in a different ultrasound. Just curious how normal this is and want to know about others experiences.
Avatar n tn I finally got hit with a whirlwind of pregnancy symptoms. Me and BF went for walk this morning and I was huffing and puffing (have gained 15 pounds up to this point, my feet and hands feel enormous, my belly feels enormous, my back aches, all my female parts feel engorged (anyone else have this problem?), and to top it off I have diarrea today. So for those who have been breezing by their first few months-- Watch out!
Avatar f tn Lol same here by week 8 u might have to go up a size.
Avatar f tn I dont understand how i can be measuring a week behind and her still be a big baby. I know it probably sounds selfish but i was kind of hoping she would be round about the 7lb to 8lb mark!! Ive got a growth scan at 36 weeks on januarythe 6th and im so nervous. Has anyone else been told their having a big baby but were suprised by weight?
Avatar n tn You have to think of how tiny the baby inside of you actually is. Most don't feel it till week 15+ if you're a first time mom. Some feel it sooner if they've had multiple kids.
Avatar f tn This is not a question but I just had my 32 week ultrasound anf everything is perfect. My little princess is perfect size, she weighs 1.9kg and her heart beat was great at 154bpm. It has just sunk in that in 8 weeks my little girl is going to be in my arms and I cant wait. Congratulations to all mums to be and new mums I hope everything goes well for all of u.
Avatar f tn The baby is the size of a lentil seed. If your showing already from that then I can't imagine how big your gonna be at 40 weeks!
5691681 tn?1375738948 That's good that your little one is healthy, just start watching what you eat a little better. It'll go by quick, I'm getting seen every two weeks too. Kinda scary huh?
280369 tn?1316705641 I am about 3 weeks behind (about 27weeks) and she said by feeling the baby (and she is really good at guessing, she was right on with both of my boys) the baby is between 1-2 pounds right now at 30 weeks. Does that seem pretty normal for this stage? Overall a very good appt. Obviously still on strict bedrest and she said since baby seems pretty small she would love to see me make it to 37 weeks.
6903444 tn?1385946946 But what was weird is that I kept feelin the little amount of pain I felt on my left side. But anyways, my mass was about the size of a baby's head and had expanded across to the middle of my body. I had to have my ovary removed but the tube is still there! So I now have one ovary left which will completely take over everything now that the other one is gone.
Avatar f tn Did they give you a measurement size of the baby? If you don't miscarry in the next 3 weeks before your next scan then definitely think about having the D&C to make sure that it is all out of your system. Hugs sweetie!
Avatar f tn Thank you all so much!! Your comments made me feel soooo much better!!!!!
Avatar n tn Hey, The symptoms you describe are typical of a pregnancy, however, ( and I hope his is not the case for you) if the pregnancy is no longer there, the hormones will take a while to come down and this could still give your wife her pregnancy systems. The body takes a while to realise and lower these hormones. One way to check is monitoring through her HcG levels as suggested in my last post. Perhaps suggest this to your new Doctor. Hope the new appointment goes well.
514428 tn?1287602056 They say they CAN gain up to half a pound a week but my doctor said the average baby gains only a few ounces a week. So I hope that makes you feel a lil bit better! I keep worrying about the size of my little guy...they say he is 6 to 6 in a half pounds at 36 in a half weeks...so if he gains the appropriate weight and I go full term that could be another 2 pounds which would make him over 8! And for me, thats big..
175662 tn?1282217256 What kind of precautions should I be aware of for long drives? As I'm driving by myself alone, I want to make sure that if I have to make this drive everything is alright. We are also running into the problem, that we share 1 car, and I can't take that 1 car to Indiana with me because Jay needs to get to and from work too.
419158 tn?1316575204 My 32 week appointment was horrible! The only good thing that came out of it is that I get another u/s and get to see my little girl:) For starters I bleed some the night before. Really freaked me out because I have never bleed during pregnancy before. My oldest gave me a back massage with one of those plug in thingys. He thought it was funny to do it a little hard.
Avatar f tn I took my pants down and my placenta fell on the ground, it was about te size of my hand. When I pulled my pants up my baby was still in my pants. My baby boy was just lying there in my underwear. The nurse had to take him away because I couldn't bare to look at him again because I was shocked enough seeing him. There are no way you could mistaken him because he looked like a little baby the size of my middle finger. I saw his unbilical cord, hands, feet, eyes. everything.
