It can be all kinds of things that can cause you to carry big or small.

Yes they told me last Thursday that he is 7 pounds 8 ounces. I know that could be wrong tho. Also I'm very tall and tho I am 39 weeks and have gained 40 pounds with this pregnancy, It doesn't show. I don't think my belly is the ideal belly to go on. A lot of people have told me that it looks like I already had the baby, or that I'm not very far along. And I didn't even start showing much until I was over 8 months pregnant. I don't think there is anything wrong with you. I think your belly is normal. And everything will be fine :)

I'm 39 weeks also I just measured after reading your post lol, I'm 42in but my stomach has been really small this whole pregnancy people are very shocked when I tell them I'm due in a few days. My doctor guessed that my baby will weigh 7.5 lbs when born

Holy hell lol, my midwife gave up meassuring me at 37 weeks, it was only 44 and I thought that was big.



Oh and my baby was 10lbs 10oz when I had her at 39 weeks.
