I was 5 and a half pounds , born 6 weeks early! My mom had to be induced at the time , because she was diagnosed with a very agressive form of breast cancer and had to start recieving treatments.

We have the same birthday!! Except I didn't come around until 1981 I was 8lbs 4oz (I was going to type DS' birthweight ), no idea how long I was. I'm not sure how dead on I was compared to a duedate; my bio mother was 16 and I can't get any good details from either of my mothers. But apparently, she went into labor sometime after supper on the 11th and had me at 1:04PM on the 12th (or 12:00PM if you ask my bio mother ) Not sure if there were any drugs involved, but there probably were. I was born with the cord around my neck and completely purple; the doctor had a hard time reviving me... but if you ask my bio mother, I came out perfectly fine. So yeah, she *must* have been hopped up on something!!!

My mother drank alot and had alot of surgery in her child bearing days... So that is why I was small... I am pretty sure I am lucky that I got off with just being small... My brother weighed 8 pounds 2oz and has FAS...

My husband always teases me and says "what do YOU know about the 70s? you where there for like 2 weeks" lol

My dh was born 6/5/66, but I don't know that I've ever known what he weighed. I'll have to ask MIL.

I weighed 6lbs13oz when I was born, and I don't remember my length.

I was born in January 1982 at a Christian-based(I think?) community hospital in Seattle, Washington. My mom was sixteen days late with me, and was not induced, but went into labor on her own. She went up to 9cms with me and then asked for a caudal block(a pre-epidural thingie) and they GAVE IT TO HER! Whatever..I was born a short time later, 7lbs 13oz..I'm not sure how long I was. I was breastfed though, and my mom was only in labor with me for seven hours or so, pretty short for a first labor. I think it runs in our family though to have short, intense labors-my aunt(mom's sis) had pretty quick labors and so did I. My grandmother had TWINS vaginally (my mom and her sis) in the 1950s, weighing 6lbs each, a short labor as well.

August of 1976. 9 pounds, 2 ounces, 23" long (yes, really -- I have the photo), after 4 hours of labor. My mother refused to go in a labor room because the other woman there was screaming and my mom couldn't concentrate, so she labored in the hall until my head was most of the way out.

Did I mention I was a breech who verted in labor? Yowza. And intact perineum. With a 38 cm head.

One of my sisters had her kids around then, and her c-sections were the classical incision instead of the bikini line, so doctors would not do vbacs because of that.

I was born at home, UC at 42 weeks, on 4/16/1985.
I was 8 pounds 2 oz, mom didn't measure me so I dont' know the length.
My mom's longest labor was FOUR hours (she had 5 babies). The quickest was my sister, who was induced due to PROM, and she was born 2 hours later. Her first baby was born when she was 16, and mom was strapped down on the table

DH was born in the hospital at 34 weeks, on 1/21/1981.
He was 6 pounds 1 oz and was 19 inches.
All of MIL's babies were preemies. The four surviving were all born at 32-35 weeks. She also delivered one at 20 weeks and one at 26

CPST & mom

Yep my mom had 3 c-setions and all 3 of them were sliced from right below the sternum to just above the pubic bone, straight up and down. Her scars are horrific.

My mom had 3 c-sections too. She has a scar from pubic to navel. Then she had gall bladder surgery in the late 80's and has another scar from navel to sternum. I think she joked about it looking like a zipper once or twice.

I was born on 3/1/72 and was 9 lb 7 oz, 22 inches long. It was a vaginal birth and my mom was so proud - the biggest baby on the unit got to be the "demonstration baby" for baths and various baby-care classes, and that was me

2/14/1982 - I was about 3 weeks late and not too long after birth my skin all peeled off. Overcooked I guess!
I was 8 lb 14 oz and I'm not sure how long. Natural birth in a birth center, and I was BF until about 16 months - my mom was pregnant with twins and her milk changed abruptly and I could no longer stomach it at all.

I was born at 7:13am on April 29, 1980.

7 lbs., 13 oz.; 21 inches long

My mom says she woke up in the middle of the night, felt a little twinge, went to pee, saw her mucous plug on the tissue, felt another twinge and thought "Hmm... guess maybe I should go to the hospital?" She went to the hospital and was already feeling the urge to push. The nurses and doctors said "No way. You just got here" but then they checked her and she was ready to go. I was born just 43 minutes after she left home for the hospital... was almost a home birth! Boy do I hope my own labor goes like that!
