Re: How did first child's birth weight compare to your other children?

DS#1 was 8lbs 2oz at 40w4d
DS#2 was 8lbs 6oz at 41w1d
DD was 7lbs 11oz at 39w

It seems like barring something that causes a later baby to be early (DD was a c-section due to breech and other factors), most subsequent babies are larger. My mom had 4 starting with me at 7lbs 4oz and ending with my youngest brother at 8lbs15oz with each baby being a little bigger than the last. Most of my friends have had similar experiences.

Re: How did first child's birth weight compare to your other children?

I couldn't answer based on the poll options.

1st LO = 7#4
2nd = 9#3
3rd = 7#8

So it went both ways. My 1st and 3rd were girls. So I dunno if maybe I just grow tiny girls and big boys??? Not sure. we'll find out when we have our second son in March!
