What Does It Mean If My Baby Is Measuring Big
Depends: The average woman is around 5 ft. 3 in tall.

Not only do we measure the baby's size (head, abdomen, thigh bone), but we can evaluate all of the internal organs, from brain to bladder.

I'm 33 weeks and the baby is measuring at 35 weeks 5 pounds 3 ounces . Does that mean I will have a big baby ? I'm due October 27th
