Resolved Question:

I am 25 weeks pregnant and my baby weighs about 1 pound according to my doctor he is under weight but according to an article I read on Web MD he is about on time in his weight. So I just want another opinion. Is my child underweight to be at 25 weeks or what?

Dear sonorath,

greetings and thankyou for using justanswer!

The weight of 660gm or 1.46 pound is expected and is the normal weight which your baby should have at 25 weeks of pregnancy.Though slight variation can be there.

The exact foetal age is necessary to know the correct weight.

Your doctor said right, that the baby is underweight if this 1 pound.

Please visit here for more detailed chart:

Let me know if you have any doubt.

thank you!
