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.

Re: How big were your babies at birth?

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

Re: How big were your babies at birth?

My DD#1 was 9 lb 5 oz (right on her due date, delivered C-sect)
DD#2 was 9 lb 15 oz (delivered 38+ weeks C/s)

I hope the next one doesn't follow the same trend, LOL.

But I have to say my MIL had a 9 lb 14oz baby then a 7+ baby so they don't always go up.

My friend, though, has 4 kids, and her youngest was her smallest.
