I have had this with all my pregnancies (on #3 right now) and everytime they tell me I'm having a BIG baby. My babies weighed 6 lbs. 7.25 oz. @35 1/2 weeks (I think the date was off by 2 weeks) and 6 lbs. 6.7 oz. @ 38 weeks.
So nowhere near the BIG baby they kept telling me I was having. Anyone else ever go through this?
I didn't have that, but I'm thinking it should depend on how they are measuring the baby. They should not have been saying the baby is big by ultrasound. But if they were just using the old tape measure on the belly, then it makes sense. The tape measure can't tell what is fluid and what is baby.
