arfy Thu 18-May-06 14:57:22

so the induction worked quite quickly then
congrats to her and lovely name. Was that a first baby

LucyJones Thu 18-May-06 14:57:39

I know!! It's the weight of 2 babies!!!

LucyJones Thu 18-May-06 14:58:17

2nd baby. The first was only 6lb something!! Induction took about 24 hours in the end I think

ComeOVeneer Thu 18-May-06 14:58:45

WOW. My second was 10lb, so I can well imagine that made her eyes water. Congratulations.

arfy Thu 18-May-06 15:09:51

my first (and currently only) was 9lbs 14oz. 11lbs - ouch!

Rodeo Thu 18-May-06 18:13:55

Congratulations! I had a 9lb 13 oz DD and thought she was huge! Well done to your SIL - what a star!!

AnnElizabeth Thu 18-May-06 23:49:22

Well done!
My third was 11lb 10oz but (thank God) was a cesarian.
G&A and pethedine only? Give that woman a medal!
Try & get a photo of your babs next to an average sized one, I've got one of Charlie next to my friends 7lb bab & it is sooo cute, you can really appreciate how big he was

I wish I had got pics as mine was 11lb 7oz, and i always explain that he looked like a 3myh old but people don't get it.

Skribble Thu 18-May-06 23:51:59

I mean pics next to another baby.

Blimey, my DS was 5lbs and half an ounce! Your SIL’s DS is over twice that! He’s a month old, and still no-where near that weight!

QE Fri 19-May-06 21:22:30

flippin' 'eck!!! and OUCH!

ds1 was 10lb and I know hat you mean about looking like a 3 month old when they come out.

ds4 was predicted to be over 11lb at 40 weeks - soooo glad that they gave in to my pleading to be induced 2 weeks early - still over 9lb even then!

Congrats to your sil - like the name too (it's ds1's middle name!)

hermykne Fri 19-May-06 21:43:29

Congratulations to your SIL!

HOW did she do that naturally?! Nuff respect. Ds (first and only so far)weighed 91b 3oz and I thought that was huge. Bet she was shocked as first one wasn't a big baby. Congratualtions all round

CarmenH Sun 21-May-06 17:56:19

My oh my! That's a big lad and a brave lady!

LaFleurStEmilion Sun 21-May-06 21:25:26

There should be MBE's awarded for that kind of thing (Mothers Brave of the Empire)!!!

Serious respect from a mere 8lb-er!!!
