i hope this posts
This is DS (i am the friend with the 12lb 2oz baby upthread) a few hours old. he was also tall so they had to bend his legs so he would fit in the box

5 days old

http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k1...yPhotos067.jpg

3 weekish old

DD was 12 lbs even. They both started out in size 3 shoes, 9 mth clothes and needing me to fix their hair. I am only 5ft tall but dh is 6ft4 and was a 10 lb baby. No gd with either. With ds i had hyperemesis and only gained 5 lbs.

No, they measured around the shoulders because my daughter in particular looked like a linebacker and was good and caught in there for a while. BTW, no tearing at all, although she was my 3rd baby. My midwives generally don't measure shoulders unless they look huge.

Looks like a fat 4 month old, I think.

I also have pics of my 9 pound, 10 ouncer who did just fine. He looks more like he's 2 months old.


If it doesn't bother you to share his pictures i'm sure everyone here would love to see your beautiful son.

Ok, I hope this works... don't have much experience linking to Picasa yet...

I think these are both early pics... he did end up swelling a bit from some of the medications they gave him. But that double chin was all his own. 10 pounds, 13 ounces, and yes, I apparently did have GD. Just didn't know it yet.

My dd was under 10 lbs, but at 20.5" and 9 lbs 13.3 oz, she was pretty plump!

Here are a couple pictures of her at birth.

Here's my brother, who was 10 lbs 1 oz (no idea on the length though).

Here is my "little" one...

This is actually a link to his album... you can see what a 10lb baby looks like and then what it looks like when that 10lb baby gains 1lb a week for 10 weeks ending up at 20 lbs at 10 weeks, 30 lbs at 6 months and 44 lbs at a year.

All too happy to share!!

Here is my son at 10lbs 5oz (he was not late or early and I did not have GD).

57cm Long (thats 22.5 inches)

Because he was so long - he wasn't ever really 'fat'. He still is really tall for his age which makes him look older.

One day old.

Its all well and good seeing them on their own but you get better perspective when you see someone holding them.

Here he is (with Grandma)
And here (with me)

He went staright into 3-6 month clothing as well.

I am hoping this one is a tiddler. No carbs/cakes/sugar for me lmao

I don't have a picture of my middle son. He was 9 lb 15 oz and he came out looking like a sumo wrestler.

The crazy thing with my dd is that she didn't stay chunky at all. She just got taller lol. At one year she was 20 lb. (not even double her birth weight) and now she is 6 and 45 lbs.

Thanks for sharing!! I enjoyed seeing his progression. My DD1 was a pound a week gainer too, but she was shorter than him. I have a pic of her on the BBLP at 3 mo and his pics reminded me of her. She stopped gaining so crazily at 6 mo. You can tell he loved his mama's milk.

My second daughter was 11-6 at birth, but only 20 lbs by a year. She's huge now, however. Here is a photo I took of her the day after birth: http://www.esnips.com/doc/1149aad5-9...a8eed/IMG_0443

And 2 days after birth, on her Boppy: http://www.esnips.com/doc/66b0952f-3...8417e/IMG_0448

Her head was 15" but when I first saw her, she looked like a pinhead to me. I don't remember or know her shoulder measurements, but I think her chest was 14.5".

okay, this is 2+ years ago now and my DD2 was just under 10lbs @ 9lb 12oz but with my 5'6" 120lb frame and my hubby 5'9" 145lb frame we were SHOCKED to say the least that we had a bigger baby. I gained around 50-60 with both DDs but #1 was a normal 7lb 11oz.
Midwife did anticipate #2 to be bigger from palpitating but of course she didn't let me in on that info

anyhow here is #2 at weigh-in around 1.5 hours old.

and here is three days
http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink

and three months
http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink

not sure if this is going to work, since this is my first time linking to picassa as well.
Nowdays she's tiny more like her parents but she had a good start.

I should add, I did not have GD with any of my pregnancies.

My two "super huge" babies were chubby through about a year and a half, and then when they started running everywhere, they really thinned out. I can count the ribs on all my kids.

Cool, she looks the biggest to me in that first picture. What a cutie.
