@PrncssDva:  I went back and looked, and at 33 weeks (the closest I could get to 31) Lexi measured 4lbs (she was in the 25% percentile.)

She was born at 6lbs, 3oz, at 39w5d.  So, while it’s not an exact science, I’m willing to bet that your daughter might size out of some of the newborn clothes!

@PrncssDva:  For the clothes, it just really depends.  Lexi had an outfit that was listed as under 7lbs from Children’s Place, and it fit her when she was over 7lbs.  On the other hand, some things that were listed as being for a 5-8lb baby she was drowning in.

My friend who was due two weeks before I was was told she was going to have a GIANT baby, and her baby ended up being perfectly normal sized.  Just be prepared for it to go either way!

@PrncssDva:  I know my doctor thought our son was gonna be HUGE and he was only 6lbs14oz born on his due date. Although he was huge and had grown out of a lot of clothes by the time he was 4 months old. – 20lbs! in size 12+ month clothing. Each baby is different though.

The estimated weights can be really off. They told me my baby would be around 6 pounds at birth, he came out just shy of 8 pounds (7 pounds 15 oz).

When my sister had her daughter, they induced her because they said the baby wasn’t growing right, was too small, and she would be lucky if the baby was even 5 pounds. Baby came out a healthy 6+ pounds (I can’t remember the oz).

@PrncssDva:  At 38weeks he was 7.5 they guessed.  He ended up being 9.8!!!

I was born at 28 weeks and I was 3 lbs 12 oz.  Don’t know if that’s really what you were looking for, but I thought I’d chime in!
