Your baby's size and weight

It is important to know that each fetus has its own development pace, and only your gynecologist can confirm that your baby is healthy.

When you have your ultrasound appointment with your doctor, they will calculate the approximate height and weight of your baby. The fetus is measured from head to heel. These are the average measurements that you will receive.

It is estimated that the baby weighs and measures:


  • Between 0.03 and 0.19 in during the 1st month of pregnancy;
  • Between 4 and 5 in and between 0.24 and 0.44 lb during the 4th month of pregnancy;
  • Between 15 and 17 in and between 3.7 and 4.8 lb in the 8th month of pregnancy;
  • Between 17.7 and 19.7 in and between 5.2 and 7.2 lb before term.

My baby was under weight this visit. He was the size of 28weeks when I'll be 30 tomorrow. That made me a little nervous and scared. Talking bout having him early and stillbirth and stuff. Now I'm have to go to a stress class twice a week. Ugh. But I'm gone change some things up. So my next visit in two weeks has some better news. #Cantkeepmedown.

Everytime I go to my doctors appointment I am the same weight from when I was not pregnant, I am 32 weeks already, baby is good in size and belly is measuring good? Should I be concerned?

Going grocery shopping next Thursday. Please spam me with healthy/tasty treats and snacks. I was losing weight and lost 54 lbs but now it's harder to tell myself no. Gaining weight with baby is expected. But I was a size 4 10 yrs ago, got pregnant and remembered how much I love food and have struggled ever since. Please help!!

Bobo’s granola bars! They are so yummy and have so many different flavors. The bars are bigger than normal granola bars and only have around 9-12 grams of sugar in them depending on which ones you buy. They’re plant based too!
