Honey definitely don't go off that!! My dr did that he literally felt her and said wow that is one huge baby. She was only 6.7!! They are not always right. It's really impossible to know how big or small or how much baby will weigh until they get here!

Some women carry big and some small sweet heart. Just cause you're measuring behind doesn't mean anything.

Guessing the weight via ultrasound is very hard they can be way off! I actually ended up losing weight from my pre pregnancy weight and up till I had her I lost like 12 pounds! They told me I was going to have a very large baby based off the ultrasound they said around 9/10 pounds but at 32 weeks she was measuring small she was only 3 pounds by 34 weeks when she was born she was 6lbs 7oz and healthy. Because I am breast feeding she lost weight before leaving the hospital and we left with her weighing 5lbs 13oz! Don't stress it too much they can be way off!
