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

I feel like I'm on a baby weight roller coaster.
I would have answered same, larger, and smaller for you

Ava was 7 lb 15 oz
Faith was 7 lb 6 oz
Eli was 6 lb 15 oz

They all fit in newborn diapers for maybe up to 5 weeks, around 10 lbs.

# 1 - 7 lbs, 3 oz at almost 42 weeks.
# 2 - 8 lbs, 2 oz at almost 42 weeks.

I suspected # 3 would come in at 9 lbs, 1 oz at almost 42 weeks. But, he shocked us all and came in at 6 lbs, 1 oz at 34 weeks.

My oldest was with someone different than my two youngest, and the current babe in my belly.

My oldest was born at 40w 3d (8#12)
Middle was 39 w 0d (9#4)
Youngest was 39 w 0d (10#1)

If this baby is born at 39w 0d, he could be 10#9. If he's born at 40+, he could be 11+ pounds.
