If your baby already weighs 6 pounds and 10 ounces at 36 weeks pregnant, does this mean you're going to have a big baby by the time you give birth?

In brief: Maybe...

If that weight estimate was done by sono, you need to know that sonos done near term are not very accurate at guessing weight.
If it is a correct estimate, you could be looking at an 8+ lb. Baby at delivery if fetal growth continues at the same rate.
