William, 37 weeks 2 days, 5 lbs 1 oz.

Finley, 38 weeks 5 days, 5 lbs 10 oz.

Both of my boys were born at home, and were perfectly healthy and developed. My placentas were also very healthy. I am a small person and just make small babies!

8lb 8oz @ 43 weeks.

Can't wait to find out the weight of this one!

8 lbs, 9 ozs. 9 lbs, 10 ozs.

Didn't count number 1 due to preterm, but here's the rest.
#2- 8lbs6oz at 37 1/2 wks
#3- 8lbs4oz at 39 1/2 wks
#4- 9lbs at 41+1
#5- 8lbs at 41+1
#6- 10lbs2oz at 41
I wasn't surprised by the #'s 2,3, and 4 since #1 was 6lbs7oz at 35 1/2wks, #5 was a girl after 4 boys so I wasn't surprised by her either. #6 was a good bit of a surprise since she was another girl and I was expecting another 8lb'er. People keep asking me if I had GD, but I didn't. Just a baby with very fat cheeks (all 4)!

My daughter was 3410g/7.5lbs at 41w0d.
post #72 of 79
Both my boys were born 39w6d. The first was 7 lbs. on the nose, the second was 8 lbs. 4 oz. Very average babies.

Just thought I would add these interesting facts along with my babies' stats.

Emma - 7 lbs 10 oz My water was broken by my doctor, who then wanted her rushed out of my vagina, lol...2 large tears and 2 episiotomies. Very hard to recover from. Sex was painful even many months after.

Addie - 9 lbs 2 oz - My water broke in my bed, I showered and then drove to the hospital...no interventions besides the hospital gown...

NO TEARS!!! Not even a scratch. The goods went back to normal soon. Hardly any pain.

Born right around 40 weeks (+ a few days) both times...7lbs 5oz and 7lbs 12oz.
post #75 of 79
My babe was born a bit past 40 wks and weighed 7.7 lbs.
post #76 of 79
DD was 10 lbs even at 42 weeks, DS was just shy of 9 lbs at 40 weeks. They both came on their own accord.
post #77 of 79
I voted 8 1/2 for my DD and then 10-11, but that should actually have 2 votes since both of my DS were over 10 lbs (10.1 and 10.2).
post #78 of 79
6 lbs, 3.75 oz. 39 weeks, 4 days.

Okay, so I geeked out about this because it wasn't making sense to me that there was such a "jump" for us 10-11lb baby mamas. Then I realized that the poll graph is misleading because some of the categories are split out and some (like my big ole 10.5 pounder) were not. So, to make a nice bell curve, you can add up all the responses in each category and get this:

Under 6 pounds: 15 (3%)
6-7 lbs: 57 (10%)
7-8 lbs: 158 (28%)
8-9 lbs: 167 (30%)
9-10 lbs: 114 (20%)
10-11 lbs: 43 (8%)
Over 11 lbs: 7 (1%)

Aah. Much better

ETA: and if you really geek out and average all the baby weights, the average is about 8.3
