Israel, mom to DD, Ivy, 4-27-06 :and DS, Kai, 12-29-07 and DD, Lilith 2-1-10 and always remembering Alice fullterm stillborn 08/31/11 (unexplained placental abruption)
girl: 9-3 (me)
My sister's second child, a girl, weighed almost a pound more than her first, a boy. It is possible that statistically it is more likely, but it seems like anything can happen.
Rebecca, mama to Carter Elliot , 06 November 07, Holden Oliver, 10 November 09, and Harper Lucinda Amelie, 26 September 11 and someone new, coming at the end of September 2013.
Mandy Mom to Hayden (9), Ellie (7), Jordyn (4), Evan (10/07/09 - 01/11/12),
and our baby due January 29th!
DD was 6 lbs 11 oz and 21 1/2 in length (born two weeks early)
My DD weighed a teeny bit less but she was longer than her brother was at birth.
Evergreen- Loving my girls Dylan age8, Ava age 4 and baby Georgia (6/3/11).
Baby #2 - DD - 40 weeks 1 day - 9lbs 9oz
So it didn't work for me. I also gained LESS weight with DD's pg'cy but I looked HUGE!!!
DD1 - 8+lbs. 40+3 weeks
DD2 - almost 8lbs. about 38-39 weeks
DS - 10+lbs. about 41 weeks
BUT my bro. (#1) was 10+lbs. and bro (#2) was 9+lbs. and my aunt had 2 boys both almost 10lbs....and I was 10+lbs. myself. All of us being born somewhere after our dd.
It all has to do with genetics and your diet. IMO When my mom had my bro. (#2) her dr. had put her on a "diet" because of my bro (#1) being so big and he ended up being almost a 1lb. lighter.
It's been true for mine with the exception of the one born at 37 weeks, who still had 3 weeks to go.
A lot of moms I know tell me that their boys were bigger, but say it was just based on dietary preference and having less morning sickness with their boys. Who knows!
Kaiti, in with Shane, astrological mama to Sophie *12.27.05*, Maya *09.25.07*, Phoenix *08.23.09* & due *12.04.11* Having a after 3 cesareans!

Chaotic mama to 5 plus a bonus one on the way.
Second was 6-4 at 39.5 weeks
both boys...I'm quite happy that even if this baby is half a pound more than my 2nd..I'm still looking at under 7 lbs
A doula who married a cop & became a mama to 3 boys: G 12/22/00, my rainbow baby B 2/2/07 and L 2/10/10 my CBA2V baby, waiting for my little caboose late February 2013 & always remembering my two angels 2006 & 2012.
my neice was also bigger than her older brother.
I had a girl first and she was 6lb 9 oz.
My next was a boy and he was 9 lb 5 oz. he was 3 days earlier than her.
Almost 3 pounds bigger!
That said, i am expecting another boy and my midwife says she thinks he is about 8.5 lbs.
But they told me DS was going to be about 7.5 lbs, LOL!
