William, 37 weeks 2 days, 5 lbs 1 oz.

Finley, 38 weeks 5 days, 5 lbs 10 oz.

Both of my boys were born at home, and were perfectly healthy and developed. My placentas were also very healthy. I am a small person and just make small babies!

Didn't count number 1 due to preterm, but here's the rest.
#2- 8lbs6oz at 37 1/2 wks
#3- 8lbs4oz at 39 1/2 wks
#4- 9lbs at 41+1
#5- 8lbs at 41+1
#6- 10lbs2oz at 41
I wasn't surprised by the #'s 2,3, and 4 since #1 was 6lbs7oz at 35 1/2wks, #5 was a girl after 4 boys so I wasn't surprised by her either. #6 was a good bit of a surprise since she was another girl and I was expecting another 8lb'er. People keep asking me if I had GD, but I didn't. Just a baby with very fat cheeks (all 4)!

Just thought I would add these interesting facts along with my babies' stats.

Emma - 7 lbs 10 oz My water was broken by my doctor, who then wanted her rushed out of my vagina, lol...2 large tears and 2 episiotomies. Very hard to recover from. Sex was painful even many months after.

Addie - 9 lbs 2 oz - My water broke in my bed, I showered and then drove to the hospital...no interventions besides the hospital gown...

NO TEARS!!! Not even a scratch. The goods went back to normal soon. Hardly any pain.

Loving mother, Devoted Wife

DD was 10 lbs even at 42 weeks, DS was just shy of 9 lbs at 40 weeks. They both came on their own accord.

I voted 8 1/2 for my DD and then 10-11, but that should actually have 2 votes since both of my DS were over 10 lbs (10.1 and 10.2).

Okay, so I geeked out about this because it wasn't making sense to me that there was such a "jump" for us 10-11lb baby mamas. Then I realized that the poll graph is misleading because some of the categories are split out and some (like my big ole 10.5 pounder) were not. So, to make a nice bell curve, you can add up all the responses in each category and get this:

Under 6 pounds: 15 (3%)
6-7 lbs: 57 (10%)
7-8 lbs: 158 (28%)
8-9 lbs: 167 (30%)
9-10 lbs: 114 (20%)
10-11 lbs: 43 (8%)
Over 11 lbs: 7 (1%)

Aah. Much better

ETA: and if you really geek out and average all the baby weights, the average is about 8.3
