#1 was 8 lb. 13 oz -- #2 was 8 lb. 5 oz.

My sister is 5' 3" and 110 lbs pre-pregnancy, and she gave birth vaginally to a 10 lb. baby girl without any major complications.

Best wishes!

Happily married mother of DD1 (10/87), DD2 (7/08), and DD3 (8/10)

Saw this on new posts.

Bigger doesn't always mean lots bigger. DD2 was a whoppin' 3 oz bigger than DD1. DD1 was 6 lb 10 oz and DD2 was 6 lb 13 oz. DD3 was born early so obviously smaller but given the "average" weight gain from when she was born til term she wouldn't have made it to 7lbs either.

Give more**Expect Less
There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.

No, not true for me. DS1 was 10 lbs, 0 oz. DS2 was 8 lbs, 14 oz. I did eat quite a bit healthier with DS2 than DS1, which I think had a lot to do with it. I really think it has a lot to do with the baby though. DS1 has always been big boned and a little bull in a china shop. DS2 is smaller boned and milder in temperament too.

My first DS was 7pd7oz(at 41w3d) and took about 30 mins to push out.

My second DS was 8pd8oz at 40w5d and took 2 contractions to push out.

My second was a sunny-side up baby and a face presentation to boot and he was, by far, easier to push out. Even if this little guy/girl of yours turns out to be the same size you will most likely have an easier time with pushing. Take Care and try not to worry!!!

I was the first and biggest child of four. The third (the only other girl) was the smallest, and the last was the second biggest.

I make medium-sized babies. 8 babies born from 37-42 weeks. 4 boys, 4 girls.
smallest was a boy at 6-12 and largest was a boy at 7-14. My 42 weeker was a 7-12 girl and my due date baby was a 7-12 girl. :
My first vaginal birth took almost 3 hours of pushing and was 7-0. Since then I usually push from 5-20 minutes.
