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

Dd1 was 7lb 13oz at 38.5 weeks
Dd2 was 8lb 5oz right on her due date
Ds was 9lb 7oz at 37 weeks (but he was measuring large by 19 weeks and just kept getting bigger so we knew to expect a big baby with him)

Dd2 wore newborn size covers for about 2 weeks. Dd1 didn't do cloth as a newborn. Ds never fit newborn stuff - I maybe squeezed him in it for a day or 2 but he wore infant prefolds and small covers when he came home.

First son was 9lb 12oz at 40w6d
Second son was 8lb 11oz at 42 weeks
Third son still baking, but not measuring ahead like the other two did. I'm anticipating an 8lber at 40.5 to 41weeks, but who knows.

I say I have big (ish) babies, but there was a huge difference in size between the first two. No GD or complications with any.

I'm sure it will work out. Good Luck!
