Re: Does measuring big always mean big baby??

No. Weight estimates are less and less reliable the farther you get in your pregnancy. Even the US based ones are only a calculation that take in multiple variables. I was told my baby was going to be around the 80% and she ended up in the 10th! I had ultrasounds every two weeks too so it wasn't like it was a one time error. Luckily, my CS wasn't for weight or I would have been ticked off when she came out weighing 5 # 14 ounces!
