Re: How big do you think your newbie will be?

Dd1 was 7 lbs 6 ozs at 37w4d. Dd2 was 8 lbs 6 ozs at 40w2d. Dd2 was also 3 inches longer than dd1. I'm guessing that this one will be between 8 and 9 lbs...I'm just hoping for a long skinny baby like dd2 and not a short chubby one like dd1. :-)

Re: How big do you think your newbie will be?

DD was 6 lbs 13 oz at 39w3d and DS was 6 lbs 14 oz at 37 weeks even, they were also very close in length, like a 1/4 inch difference. I am guessing this lo will be right around there too.

DS was 6.1 and 19 inches. Really hoping for full term (he was born 37.4, I want to make it to 40) and hopefully a bigger baby. I would like over 7lbs please!

DS #1 8lb1oz at 40w3d
dd #2 7lb13oz at 38w5d
dd #3 6lb12oz at 36w5d
ds #4 7lb0oz at 36w3d

ds#5 Well, I guess that would depend on when I have him. If he's full term, I can expect a 9+lb baby, but if he's early like the others, well...maybe he'll be "normal" sized.

Re: How big do you think your newbie will be?

DD1 was 6 lbs 8 oz at 40+5
DD2 was 7 lbs 2 oz at 40+46 minutes!

I gained 40 lbs with each pregnancy (I am technically underweight normally) and so far have gained 19 pounds this time (19 weeks, goal is a pound a week!). I would hope for another 6-7 pounder.

Re: How big do you think your newbie will be?

I pray for anything under 8lbs! My 8lb was the TOUGHest recovery. I hope to go a little early again so I'll say 7lbs 5oz.

1DD-6lbs 14oz 40w2d
2DD-7lbs 10oz 40w on EDD
3DD-8lbs 38w4d
4DD-7lbs 5oz 38w

Re: How big do you think your newbie will be?

DD was 6 lbs. 12 oz. born at 37 w. 1 d.

DS was 6 lbs. 10 oz. born at 38 1/2 w.

DS was also 1 inch shorter than his sister, so my boys (so far) have not out weighed or been longer than my girls.

I'm thinking this baby will either be the same or slightly smaller. I look smaller now than I did with the other two at this point. Of course, how you look externally may not make a hill of beans at the size.

Re: How big do you think your newbie will be?

think it can go either way and you never know if they will come boefore edd or after like other children
my 1st a girl 8.5 lbs 41 weeks
2nd a boy 10lb even 41 weeks exactly like dd
3rd a lil earlier 40+5 10lb 10 oz.
and my 4th who came the earliest at 38+6 9lbs 14oz so if he would've stayed in 2-3 weeks longer like the others could've beent he biggest lol.
you just never know
