Baby boy arrived safely! Low birth weight !?

Imo93 profile image

Just to let you guys know our baby boy was born by spontaneous labour yesterday afternoon weighing a tiny 4lb 12oz at 39 +2 weeks! We were not expecting him to be this small as my 36 week growth scan showed him to be 5.5 pounds! Just shows there not always accurate! Baby doing well just has low blood sugars so regular 3 hourly feeds :) anyone else had a baby at 39weeks weighing so little!?

Congratulations xx

I wasn’t in this situation (my boy was 8lbs5 at 40 weeks) but just wanted to say congratulations on your new arrival and hope everything is ok xx

My good friend did (also unexpectedly small- less than 4lb) and now has a happy healthy three year old who has hit all her milestones at the right time or early. She is still quite diddy though!

First of all congratulations.

I had my twins born 4lb 13 and 5lb 3 at 35 weeks . Not 39 weeks but just wanted to send you all the best xx

Congratulations xx
