My first ds was 10 lbs 2 oz (born at 41 wks, 4 days) and ds #2 was born one day shy of 40 wks, he was 9 lbs 7 oz.
I always eat breakfast, and a healthy lunch, and a homecooked dinner (most nights of the week, anyway). Aside from the basics to make sure I got a variety of the good stuff (fruits, veg, protein, fibre, calcium, etc) I ate whatever I wanted, pretty much. If I had/have a craving for a chocolate bar, I'll eat it. So maybe I eat more than the average pg woman, it's hard to say. Although I started pg #1 25 lbs lighter than I started pg #2, I ended up at the same weight by the end. This leads me to believe that your body is 'programmed' to gain a certain amount of weight no matter your diet, and your baby's size is predetermined as well. Just my theory though!
I loved my big strong babies, I was glad they were big, although I'm always thinking how cute those 0-3 mth size outfits are, and amazed if I get to hold a smaller baby than I've had! So tiny!
