Birth weight vs coming home weight?

Just because I am curious (I know all babies are different) how much did your baby weigh at birth and how much did they weigh at birth. Don't forget to include what gestation they were born at, and how old they were when they came home.

Thank you

Hudson was born at 35 weeks weighing 5lbs 8oz, and came home 3 days later weighing 4lbs 12oz.

Memphis is 10 days old, and was born at 29 weeks weighing 2lbs 4oz. He is still in the NICU, so no coming home weight.

I don't remember exactly, but I think it was like this:

Jordan, 41 weeks, 9 lbs, 6 ozs... 8 lbs 15 ozs at discharge.
Jaxon, 40 weeks, 8 lbs 8 ozs... 8 lbs, 4 ozs at discharge.
Kelli, 41 weeks, 8 lbs 14 ozs... Born at home, so no clue.

DD was born at 34 weeks. She was 4 lbs. even when she was born and when she came home. She had to get back up to and maintain her birth weight before coming home. She had a 10 day NICU stay mainly for that reason.

ETA: to you and your precious LO.

I know they are. I was just curious to see what other babies who were born early came home at, and their starting weight. Gives me a little bit of an idea of what to expect for my newest little guy.
