Ultrasound: It is perfectly reasonable to request an ultrasound estimated fetal weight. An ultrasound would give a reasonable measure of the size of the fetus as well as an opportunity to assess the volume.of amniotic fluid surrounding the fetus .Both of these should be assessed if there's a question of the size of the uterus at term.
