Re: Does measuring big always mean big baby??

Yes & No... it could just mean baby is positioned in a certain way, it could mean excess fluid, etc. Usually if you continue to measure over by 3wks and at the end you're measuring over 40wks than I would say you should expect a big baby. But ask your dr/MW to feel your belly and guess the size of your baby closer to your EDD. I've had much more accurate guesses that way than by u/s & fundal height measurements.

Baby 1 & 2 (34w4d) 4lb15oz & 6lb1oz
Baby 3 (40w3d) 9lb2oz
Baby 4 (39w1d) 8lb0oz
Baby 5 (37w1d) 8lb11oz
