Many women give birth to 10+ babies just fine. Weighing babies in utero is not an exact. Many times when a Doctor says a baby is 10 lbs it's really only 7 or 8 lbs. I wouldn't worry. There is no need to make baby come out before he/she is ready.
Ultrasound can be way off...so I'd not trust it, honestly. And what's wrong with a bigger baby? They're just extra squishy cuz they've got more fat.....squishy doesn't hurt...it's their darn big noggins that do.
I wouldn't trust the ultrasound. I had one at 35 weeks and my daughter was estimated to already weigh 6.5lbs and the doctor estimated that by the time my due date came, she would be close to 9 or 10 pounds. He was extremely concerned as to whether or not she would even be able to be delivered vaginally and had also discussed inducing.
She ended up being born at 6lbs 12oz.
Let the pregnancy finish its course, your sister should want a full developed baby, there will be less possibility of complications. Plenty of women have very large babies with absolutely no problems, its been happening for thousands of years
