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)

I had a 6lb 15 oz girl.
And an 8 lb 4 oz girl.

The youngest was an easier delivery.

My biggest was 8 lb 12 oz and she came a week before her due date.  I was measuring 2 weeks ahead with her.  All my others I've been measuring right on or a week ahead.

I don't believe that measurments, particularly ultrasounds are very accurate.  My second child, Lily, was large.  I have 4 kids and they were 7 lbs 4 oz, 7 lbs 12 oz, and 7 lbs 12 oz....but Lily was 10 lbs 9 oz.  My ultrasound that I had near the end of my pregnancy said she was going to be somewhere between 7 lbs 8 oz and 8 lbs 4 oz.  So, I went to 41 weeks and they decided to induce me because I was retaining fluids.  When she was born she was the talk of the hospital, lol.  I even had the cafeteria lady ask if she could see the baby.  :P

I know some people get worried over ultrasounds and even fundal height.  Neither of which indicated to me that I was going to have a large baby.  And, if it makes you feel better...my 10 lb baby was my second easiest birth.  The only one that was easier was my 4th birth...it was a home birth and it was SO amazing.

My babies were only 9-10 pounds so not big.     The 10-pounder was by far the easiest!   :-)

A week "ahead" is not big though.

This except my first was 8lbs 3oz and my 2nd was 9lbs even. 3hrs with vac for first 2 pushes fo 2nd.

Quoting Angela4boys:

My first was 6 pounds 10 ounces, my second was 8 pounds 5 ounces. My first I pushed for 3 hours with a vac. My second was out in two pushes, his delivery was a breeze. Don't worry about size, our bodies can accommodate!
