#2: 7 lbs 10 oz
#3: 6 lbs 11 oz
My first and third are built like me- small bones. My second is built like her daddy- large boned and sturdy. She weighs as much as her older brother now! Also, my first two were both born 4 days before my due date, and my third was born a week before my due date, so they were all very close in gestational age.
DD2: (39w4d) 7 lbs 13 oz
DS: (41w) 8 lbs 8 oz
I think they are all different - I don't think they necessarily get bigger with successive pregnancies - anyway I wouldn't worry, there's no evidence of a problem, right? The doc could be wrong, or this babe could simply be destined to be a little more petite.
Forget weight trends - in my case this past time I kept saying, aren't successive babies "supposed to" arrive earlier???
Kerri blessed single mama to Teresa 8/2/02, Madeleine 5/28/04, Andrew 6/25/06, and Isabelle 11/27/08
#1/DD - 9lb 2.75oz (but she was induced at 38 weeks, because she was "getting too big" - Gimme a break... So, she would've been bigger than my second daughter, most likely)
#2/DD - 9lb 4oz (Came naturally at 39w 6d)
#3/DS - 11lb 7oz (Came naturally at 42w 4d)
2nd - 6 lbs 15.9 oz (38 wks 5 days) just .1 oz under 7 lbs
3rd - 8 lbs 2 oz (39 wks 4 days)
I think the *average* baby weighs a little over 7 lbs so I wouldn't worry about an estimate, and it could very well be off a pound or so either way, it's just a guess.
My doc keeps saying this babe will be average size 7.5-8lb which is freaking me out a little. I know docs aren't very accurate when guessing, my last ob had no idea at all, but I still feel a little nervous that my babe could be that small. My son was 8lb3oz at 41w, my full term daughter 9lb7oz at 39w. So my question is; I always thought that babes get bigger the more you birth (within your own body's limits of course) but what is your personal experience? Did your babes get larger, smaller, or did it vary? Thanks for any responses.
#2 9lbs 2oz
#3 7lbs 15oz
#4 9lbs 2oz
All of mine were born at 40 weeks(no inductions of any kind)
With #3 I was very sick for 2.5 months of the pregnancy with gallbladder problems...that's why I think she was so small.
#2 8lb 9oz (40weeks+3 days)
#3 9lb 9oz (39 weeks)
I was never gestational diabetic, but with DS#1 I had pretty severe hypoglycemia. Also, interestingly enough DS#3 was by far the easiest labour and birth of all 3 of them.
DD #2 7.8
DD #3 7.6
DD #4 8.0
Mine were all about the same. They were all born within 2 days of the EDD.
I think the gestational age they were delivered is more important. Plus birth weight and Length have NOTHING to do with how large or small a child will be into adulthood.
My second was 40 pounds at 2 years old, my first was 20 pounds at 2 years old. They are what they are. I would not worry unless you are going to have like a 14 pounder or soemthing....
#1 (38w): 7 lb 13 oz
#2 (38w): 8 lb
#3 (39w): 8 lb 7 oz
#4 (38w): 7 lb 1 oz
I wouldn't worry about a 7-9 lb baby.
#1 (boy): 8 lbs
#2 (boy): 8 lbs, 9 oz
#3 (boy): 7 lbs, 15 oz
#4 (girl): 7 lbs, 11 oz
Does gender have anything to do with birthweight?

#2 8lbs 3 and a half oz. (boy)
#3 8lbs. 12 oz. (boy)
I'd like to point out I was 2 weeks past my due date with #1, 10 days past my due date with #2 and only a week past with #3. The baby will be whatever weight and size they are meant to be. I think it is silly that doctor's guess at weights and sizes like that because it can put mama in a panic about weight (big or small) and most of the time their guesses are rather inaccurate. I wouldn't worry too much because what weight they are guessing sounds pretty normal.
Nic, loving mama to 5 with a SURPRISE 6th on the way.
