Hi. I am now 7 months pregnant. My baby’s weight is 1679g. Is my baby fat?

Firstly, the gestational age (Month 7) that you told us is quite broad, and our answer would depend on exactly which week within Month 7 you are in. If your pregnancy is in week 28 the baby is quite over standard (at 28 weeks the baby should weigh around 1147g).

Please see the table below to determine whether your baby’s weight is below or above average, based on the Week that your pregnancy is in.
