Did you have a 'big' baby?

So my first was 6lb 13oz born on his due date. And I knowww ultrasound isn't always correct and all butttt last Monday at 37w he measured in ultrasound already 7lbs (bigger then my first at birth :(! ) and my belly is measuring a week ahead. I'm just kind of nervous I'm going to have a big baby. Did anyone have wrong measurements and still had a small baby or I'm I seriously looking at a 9-10lb baby it I go past my due date (I'm 38 weeks and not looking like I'm going anytime soon 1cm)

My daughter was 7.9lbs born at 40 weeks
My son was born 8.7lbs at 38 weeks- he was a big baby and would have easily been 10lbs at 40 weeks.

My boys were 9 and 10 lbs. This little girl is measuring well over 6 at 33 weeks. 7 lbs is not a big baby!

They can be off by 2 lbs. I don't even know why they do these ultrasounds. My babies are small, but I have had at least 2 of them declared "huge" before birth. None of them were over 7 lbs. (They come a little on the early side.)

With my first had an ultrasound very early one due to pains. But with her I was always showing 2 weeks ahead. Which can be normal. She was 6lbs 10oz

My second they kept trying to tell me she as going to be 9-10lbs. Based off an ultrasound, how big I looked, possible GD(which I had no clue my Dr put this down till I was in labor in the hospital) and that I was showing 4 weeks ahead. I had a 6lb 3oz little girl. You should have seen the look on all there faces. 

My third I never had an ultrasound. With her I was showing 2-5 weeks ahead. I was 5 weeks a few days before I had her. She was 8lbs 14oz but we know she was a bit more when born. Since she pooped and peed right after she came out.
