My friend has a friend who gave birth to a little boy who was almost 13lbs!

She showed me the photos of him on Facebook. Very cute and chubby!

My second was my biggest, 10lb exactly, born at 38 weeks. Third son was a meagre 6lb 14 1/2 at 37 weeks, so much easier to push out! grin

My friend had a 12lb baby at term. I assumed she has a c-section, but recently found out she had a vaginal birth. I'm impressed!

I had a tiddly 10lb 1/2 oz in November.... A friends GF had 11lb born naturally. My best friends 1st was 9lb 12 she is about to go into labour (8 days over due) and she is looking considerably larger than last time....

Just pushed out my perfect daughter naturally, 9lb 8oz. First baby, so no comparison but would do it again in a flash.

My husband was 11lb 10oz but when I was in hospital having our DD there was a 13lb 2oz c-section delivery

My DS was 42 weeks and weighed in at 11lbs13oz by EMC - there were 6 people in the delivery team and he was the biggest 3 had delivered! My midwife warned me at 34 weeks that none of my new born or 0-3 would fit (literally days after me washing it and folding it all neatly into the draws and thinking "Oh how cute!") turns out he fit into 3-6 for about 2 weeks then went to 6-9 but stayed in that for quite some time! He is now totally average weight wise but a little giant compared to his nursery companions height size - I am a tiny 5ft3 and I'm pretty sure he's not far off it at 22months ha ha

Reaction from literally everyone is a long wince and 'OUCH' ha ha

My middle one was a 10lbs 12oz - but that was when he was weighed the morning after the birth after he'd crapped and wee'd..... so probably a whisker off 11lbs.
