Re: How big were your babies at birth?

My first was 7lbs 14oz and I am really curious to find out how much our baby girl is going to be, OB things she might be a bit bigger but I think she will be smaller.

My Firend is 1 of 5, she is the 4th child and her and her sister (who was #3) were actualy the smallest of all children, maybe because they were girls? But thats just an example that not every consecutive child is bigger then the last.

Re: How big were your babies at birth?

My DD#1 was 9 lb 5 oz (right on her due date, delivered C-sect)
DD#2 was 9 lb 15 oz (delivered 38+ weeks C/s)

I hope the next one doesn't follow the same trend, LOL.

But I have to say my MIL had a 9 lb 14oz baby then a 7+ baby so they don't always go up.

My friend, though, has 4 kids, and her youngest was her smallest.

Re: How big were your babies at birth?

I believe every baby is different and does it's own thing

My first was 7lbs14oz and my second was 7lbs even. What stumped me is the doctors said these were big babys!?!? WTH? My mom pops out 8 and 9pound babies every time. I though mine were small/average.
