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)

Mine have all been average/smaller end of average.

First was 7 lbs. 9 oz. Second was 7 lbs. 7 oz. Third was 6 lbs. 8 oz, but she came a month earlier than the others.

Generally speaking, women tend to have larger babies as they go. So, having a bigger baby than your first wouldn't be anything surprising. 9-10 lbs. really isn't bad. It's just the larger end of average really. You can totally do it. :) Position is everything with bigger babies, so as long as you're free to move around and deliver in whatever position is comfortable for you, you'll be fine.

Nope. I was told my daughter would be about 7.5 pounds at birth 3 days before she was born. When she came, she was half an ounce shy of 6 pounds. My little peanut.

My first was 9.6lbs and my second was 8.0lbs. Don't worry about size! You can do it!
