Re: Out of curiosity...

My oldest son is from a previous relationship, he was 8 lbs 12 oz. Not sure how big his dad was when he was born, but I was around 7 lbs 4 oz at birth.

My hubby was 9 lbs 4 oz at birth, and our first son was 9 lbs 4 oz, second son (my youngest currently) was 10 lbs 1 oz.

My kids just keep getting bigger... nervous as to what that means for this baby due in December.

Re: Out of curiosity...

DH was little. I was 8 1/2lbs I think. My brothers were big too. DS was 9lb 3oz 9 days overdue. I did gain 60lbs though? not going to do that again this time and this one is a girl too so hoping for something a little smaller

Re: Out of curiosity...

I too have heard that especially first babies, tend to be the same size as their mother at birth.

I was 8lbs 8oz born on my due date

DS1 was 8lbs 1oz at 38w 3d
DS2 was 6lbs 11oz at 36w 3d
DD was 6lbs 7oz at 37w

Had all of my babies made it to their due date, they would have been about the same size that I was, but they like to come early

Re: Out of curiosity...

I was a week late and weighed 6lbs.
DH was a 10.5lb baby

DD was 7lbs 9oz.

ETA: DD started labor on her due date... so, very much on time.

Not so true for us either! My husband was a large baby at 10 pounds 10 ounces and 23.5 inches long. I was 7 pounds 10 ounces and 21 inches long. My mother-in-law tried to convince me that I would have massive babies, too.

Both babies were born in my 39th week, and their birth stats are:

ODS: 7 pounds, 4 ounces, 21-1/2 inches long
YDS: 8 pounds, 10 ounces, 22 inches long

Good luck to you, mama!
