Does the size of a womens pregnant belly relate to the size of the baby? For example; if her belly is big, does that mean a big baby? If her belly is small, does that mean a small baby? :D

Not at all!! There is no correlation between the two.
Everyone told me I looked small for how far along I was in my pregnancy and my son was 9lbs. 7oz. I am also pretty small myself.
Then there are women who look huge and have these tiny babies.
How big your belly gets all depends on your pre-pregnancy body size, frame, etc.
How big your baby is at birth is affected by different things such as the amt. of weight you gain during pregnancy, genetics, and your environment. If you smoke, or consume enough caffeine in your pregnancy that could cause you to have a low-birthweight baby.

Yep Nikki is right; Belly size has nothing to do with baby size!

They are both right . Belly size has nothing to do with it and really weight gain correlation depends on your size already.
Both of my boys were going to be HUGE babies because I measured larger than i was supposed to and because they took up all of my available space. Can you guess what happened? Neither one even hit 6 lbs. lol they weighed in at 5'13 and 5'15 ,,,lol and I had not smoked ,drank or even allowed myself caffine or fast food. So really its anyones guess how much a baby will weigh in at. your best bet is going to be any ultrasound measurments and even those are not always going to be completely accurate.
