  • They tell you this junk all the time. Women end up expecting huge babies and are all concerned about getting a c-section or making sure they get an epidural which can be dangerous because they are screaming huge baby. Then they get handed a 6 or 7 pound baby. All babies are going to measure differently at different stages. We are all different sizes and it's going to depend on the size of the parents. If this measuring thing was so true as to how much the baby weighed/measured on a certain gestation date, that means that if everyone gave birth on their due date, every baby would be the same weight/length. They are full of it.

  • Yes its normal. I measured big for the first lil bit, then measured normal, but when i was 6 or 7 months I started measuring small, dr did an ultrasound, everythng was fine the dr even asked me where I was hiding him at. Everythngs fine theirs nothng to wry bout. If ur dr gets worried the'll do an ultrsaound just to make sure nothngs wrng.
