How big were your babies at birth?
 
I'm wondering if certain women just have bigger or smaller babies then average or is each baby just different? My first was exactly 8 lbs and born at 41 weeks and my second was 9lbs 10 oz and born at 41weeks1day. I'm wondering if mine will keep getting bigger or I could just as easily have a 7 pounder next time.

DD1 40 1/2 weeks 5lbs. 8oz
DD2 39 1/2 weeks 5lbs. 9oz
DS 39 1/2 weeks 5lbs. 7 oz.

Now that I've typed it out, I guess I was meant to have small babies. :o

My first one was 8 lbs 2 oz at roughly 39 weeks 6 days
Second was 10 lbs 9 oz at roughly 39 weeks 6 days and
third was 9lbs 6 oz at 39 weeks and a few days

I think it can really vary between babies, you might have a bigger one, but you could just as easily have a smaller one too

DS1 9lbs 15oz at 41 weeks
DS2 9lbs 12oz at 39 weeks

Because of the 2-week difference I'd say mine got bigger eventhough DS2 was 3 ounces smaller

DS #1 9 lbs- one week overdue
DS #2 9 lbs 8 oz- right on time
I am too scared to have anymore, lol. Totally kidding. I think some women just have big babies. Your body can handle it though, I didn't tear or have any problems whatsoever with DS #2 and I had him ALL NATURAL! I LOVE MY MIDWIFE :carrot: :broc: :banana:

DS#1 - 7 lbs 9 ozs 20 inches (Csection at 39 weeks cause he was breech)
DS#2 - 6 lbs 9 ozs 19 inches (born at 37 wks 6 days via induced VBAC)
DD#1 - 7 lbs 6 ozs 21 1/2 inches (born at 40 wks 3 days via induced VBAC)
DS#3 - 9 lbs 3 ozs 20 1/4 inches (born at 41 wks 6 days via natural homebirth)

So it would seem all mine would of weighed ruffly the same if all born at the same gestational age. Based on the theroy they gain 1/2 a lb a week in the last month or so.
