Does this generally mean I'm going to have a big baby.?
This is baby number 4.

Both girls 7lb 11
oldest born at 41+1 natural
My other daughter 37 weeks C SECTION
My son 8 lb 2 (they said he was going to be small at growth scan) he was born at 38 weeks C SECTION

But I've always been within measurements with midwife so just curious I have actually put on 2 stone feel massive struggling with my hips.
TIA

Was this measuring fundal height or from a growth scan? And if it was fundal height, has it been taken by the same midwife every time?

I've heard fundal height predictions of baby weight can be very inaccurate, so just take with a pinch of salt.

The tape measure isn’t a very accurate way to measure the Bump. Especially if it is a different midwife each time.
Also baby might have change position and be sticking their bum up.
If you have 3 larger measurements they may send you for a growth scan. I wouldn’t worry xx

I was the same and DS2 was 9lb 11oz. He was 99th centile and still is. At 8 he's in age 12/13 clothes and is very stocky. Dad is the same though (DH is 6'5"") otherwise fit and healthy
