Re: How big were your babies at birth?

Here's mine:

Twins first...
DS#1- 4lb 15oz (34w3d) SROM
DS#2- 6lb 1oz (34w3d) SROM
DS#3- 9lb 2oz (40w2d) Induction
DS#4- 8lb 0oz (39w1d) Induction
DS#5- 8lb 11oz (37w1d) Induction

Mine appear to be getting bigger if you look at the dates and weights, but without having another baby I guess I'll never know for sure! LOL The twins were actually guesstimated at 3lb each via u/s 6 days before delivery and all the nurses said they would have easily been 8-9lb range had I gone to term. #3 I was never anticipating to go overdue since the twins went early but obviously I was wrong! LOL My 4th was induced b/c of my history of PP heart failure and atypical eclampsia on top of rapid progression labors. LOL Then #5 had to bite me in the butt on that one with a 24hr labor! I was induced b/c he was breech and transverse and vertex every single day. My dr said she had never seen a baby move as many times as he did... Even attempted a version but he flipped again that night. Grrr! Then the next week he was head down and my dr said we would go for it b/c it was better than risking an emergency c/s later on if I went into labor on my own and he was transverse. I am thankful that happened b/c had I gone to 40wks he would have been a MONSTER!! LOL

Re: How big were your babies at birth?

DD#1 8lbs 11oz born at 40weeks, 3 days
DS 8lbs 3oz born at 40 weeks, 2 days
DD#2 6lbs 15.5oz born on her due date

Mine just got smaller Going from having an 8lb 11oz'er to having a 6lb15.5oz'er was a huge difference, Gracie was soo tiny and still is. She was only 19lbs 11oz at her one year check up.

DC #1 (DD) - 5lbs. 2oz. - 18.5 inches (34wks 6days)
DC #2 (DS) - 7lbs. 11oz. - 20.5 inches (39wks)

I've also generally heard to look at your family history and hubby's family history. Both of our mothers had all of their babies (5 total) in the 7 to 8 pound range and all close to the due date.
