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.
