Just for fun, due DC3 in a few weeks. Haven't found our the sex, have 2 DS already and will be delighted with either. My boys were both born on the 99th centile for weight confused this little one has consistently stayed around the 50th. Are girls statistically any smaller I wonder??

My girl was 10lb 8! Boy was 9lb 2, so not for me!

With my mum's five pregnancies, all the boys were 2 lb heavier!

I have had two girls almost exactly the same weight.

Nope, my DS was my smallest, both DDs were bigger

KateLivesInEngland Tue 31-May-16 20:44:07

No, two 10lb babies were both girls. Boy at just under 8lb.

2 girls
7lb10
7lb5
Then the boy......
10lb5

All similar gestation, 10-13 days late. Knowing he was a boy, we thought maybe a bit bigger, maybe 8lb something, hmm.
He is 4 now and still built like a tank and heavier than his 7 yr old sister.

Yes, she was 0.5oz lighter grin

Coldtoeswarmheart Tue 31-May-16 20:48:00

I had small boy, large boy, then girl who was about halfway between their weights.

Ihatechoosingnames Tue 31-May-16 20:51:50

No DS was a few oz lighter

NeedACleverNN Tue 31-May-16 20:52:07

Nope but ds was born a bit earlier due to complications (he stopped growing so I was induced)

Dd born at 38+4 5lb 14oz
Ds born at 37+3 5lb 3oz
