much less weight gain = smaller baby? - Page 2

post #21 of 25

I don't think weight gain has anything to do with baby size. i gained a LOT of weight with DS, didn't weight myself at the end but i would guess it was about 60 pounds. He was born 6.9 pounds. my mom also gained 60 pounds with my sister who was 6.3 pounds and only 30 lbs with me, and i was 7.14 ounces. 

 

even though small babies run in my and DH's family, i was surprised DS was only 6.9. but looking back, even though i gained a lot, i did not have a big appetite at all. in the first trimester i probably didn't eat enough!

Don't remember numbers but I lost weight and gained less overall with three bigger babies.

Well anecdotes sure don't seem to be confirming that hope, are they? :S

I usually don't gain much if any (DD1 and this one I start out the second trimester less than PP weight).  

 

DD1- 40 lb gain total- 10 lbs, 5 oz baby

DD2- 22 lb gain total- 9 lbs, 12 oz baby

 

I have gained 3-5 lbs at almost 19 weeks and I am interested in seeing how much this baby BOY weighs.

I gained 80lbs the first time and had an 8lb13oz baby and then 10 yrs later I had hyperemesis with ds2 and gained ZERO lbs, I literally lost weight through the whole pg and gave birth lighter than when I conceived.  Ds2 was 9lb0.5oz.  Probaby not what you wanted to hear   haha
