Re: How big was your baby if he/she was born at 38 werks or very slightly b4?

My firstborn was 38 weeks when she was born and weighed about 8 lbs! I have no idea why she's grow that weight because before she came out on the real world, I was eating just the right amount of food instructed by my OB. My son was 39 weeks and he weighed around 6-7lbs.

(in comparison, DD came at 41w1d and was 7lb 6oz, so apparently, I go into labor when my babies reach a certain weight, regardless of gestation, LOL!)
I'm like you!

DD1: 40+2, 7lb 6oz
DD2: 39, 7lb 8oz
DD3: 39+5, 7lb 70z
