I was 6 lbs, 5 oz
DH was 8 lbs 12 oz
DS1 was 7 lbs 2 oz
DS2 was 7 lbs 3.5 oz

I was right "on time," according to mom's due date. DH was 2 weeks late, and both DS's were born at 38 weeks and a couple of days.

I was 9lb 3oz (42 weeks), DH was 5lb (36 weeks) and DD was 7lb 3oz (40 weeks/4days). She has since followed DH's weight gain pattern almost identically.

ds 6 lb 8 oz- born at 39 weeks 4 days
dd1 7lb 10 oz- born at 39 weeks 4 days
dd2 6 lb 11 oz- born at 38 weeks 6 days

I was just under 4lbs (IUGR), I'm barely 5".
DH was 8 something. He's now 6'4"

#1 was 6lb 14oz
#2 was 3.7 (6 weeks early)
#3 was about 9.6

I sure got sick of hearing how I'd never have my husband's big babies because I'm just soooo teeny! I'm pretty damned happy to hold up my 9lb UBAC.
