Ultrasounds are horrible at figuring out weight. All my children were measured at 8-9 lbs for birth, but actually weighted 6-6.6 lbs in reality.

I agree ultrasounds are not accurate indicators of weight at all, I think they state the weight range can be out by 2lb either way. I had a scan at 36 weeks which said my daughter was 7-8lb and she was 6.8lb at birth.

Yeah it doesn't necessarily mean anything. The average baby is between 7 and 8 lbs at birth, but there are many out there that are less or more. My first son was born at 35.5 weeks and he was 5 lbs, 5 ounces.
