My first, they kept telling me he would be no bigger than 7 lbs. I kept saying 9 lbs. He was 9 lbs 2 oz. My second (with an OB, instead of a midwife), she made no guesses, just asked me what I thought. I said she would be a little bigger. 9 lbs 6 oz. I know of so many people who were induced/sectioned for "big babies" and only one of them was over 7.5 lbs. One was just over 5.
