Actually here is fact that i read in a book I cant recall the name of the book but I read it when i was pregnant. If you are having a relatively normal pregnancy and are going to carry to full term you can take the fathers birth weight and the mothers birth weight add them together and divide by 2 and give or take an ounce each way and usually that is approximately what your baby's birth weight will be. I can tell you that it worked for 3 out of 4 of my children not my fourth because there was pregnancy complications and he had to be taken early so 3 out of 3 I would say the odds are in your favor.
good luck and congratulations
