How do you tell if your having a large baby

i had a very large baby and delivered him naturally. I am wondering how can you tell if you are having a large baby, my measurements were always within 3cm of my date?

Answer: Hi, The birth weight of the baby tends to be hereditary and the midwife should be also able to tell if it is big in late pregnancy by feeling it through the abdomen. Best wishes, Alex.
