I'm measuring 3 weeks ahead. Does that mean my baby could come early?

I've been measuring 3 weeks ahead for the last couple of weeks. I've only gained 6 pounds my whole pregnancy so far and I'm 8 months pregnant so it's all baby, fluid and breast tissue. My doctor told me to make sure I'm exercising and eating right (which I am) so my baby doesn't get to big.

Since she told me that I assumed that measuring big just meant the baby might be a a little big but every time I turn around I see a post where a women is saying that she's measuring a couple of weeks ahead so her baby is probably going to come early.

Is that true? Does measuring big mean your baby might come early?

I'm really cocerned about this.
