Baby isn't due for 3 more weeks. They gain pretty fast near the end of the pregnancy. The estimates that you get CAN be off by quite a bit in either direction....

Just keep eating healthy foods and take it easy when you need to be. Your baby will be born whatever size she is meant to be...

Sarah has a good point! In the time period you have left she will be 6 pounds 8 ounces, which is not bad! Way better than pushing out a 8/9 lbs baby! :)

First how do you know baby is 4 pounds 8 ounces? It is hard to tell exactly what a baby weighs before birth. All estimates are just that estimates and are often times off. Your baby will grow how your baby is supposed to grow. On average a baby is growing a half pound to a pound a week the last few weeks of pregnancy. Unless your doctor is concerned ( and if he is he would give you recommendations) there is no reason to do anything different.
