Ds1 - 9lbs 3oz 39 weeks
Ds2 - 8lbs 9oz 37 weeks

I expect this baby to be in the 8-9lb range

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

DS1 - 7lbs 5oz at 36w
DS2 - 7lbs 10oz at 38w
DS3 - 8lbs 14oz at 39w

I think mine correlate to my pg weight gain, too, though: 39lbs, 22lbs, 34lbs. Each subsequent baby generally weighs more, and boys tend to be heavier than girls.

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

my answer doesn't really apply to the options. My first child was large (almost 10lb) my second was smaller (almost 9lb) my third was large (bigger than my first and just shy of 10lb) and my fourth was my smallest at barely 8lb.

they all had very similar gestations (40+2 earliest 41+3 latest)

I feel like I'm on a baby weight roller coaster.

Baby 1-42 weeks, 6 days, 8lbs 11oz

Baby 2-40 weeks even, 10lbs 8oz

Baby 3-37 weeks, 2 days, 7lbs 7oz (I wasn't in labor when he was delivered. Waiting until due date he likely would have been 9lbs +.
