Babies can range from. 5lbs up to 13lbs
If doc isn't worried, don't be.

On my due date they told me my daughter was 10 pounds..  I went 10 more days after that before I was induced and she was 7.5 when she was born.  I don't think they can really tell how much a baby weighs.  I wouldn't worry to much, it all comes into place :)
