You're just going to get anecdotes on here, OP, not any hard scientific data.

Absolutely not true. Surely they will monitor growth if that is a concern anyway? X

First was 6.13 at 41 weeks
Second 9.3 at 40
Third was 8.10 at 40

Got smaller but still within a week of due date (earlier).

Not true.
DC1 9lb4
Dc2 8lb4
Dc3 7lb10
Dc4 9lb5
Varying gestations though

happy2bhomely Thu 24-Aug-17 23:25:07

1st 8.13
2nd 9.7
3rd 7.15
4th 11.0
5th 6.15

Why are you worried that the next will be bigger? Why would that be a problem?

Mine got smaller too.

1, 8lb 5, 12 days late.

2, 8lb, 1 day late.

3, 7lb 7, 9 days late.

4, 8lb, 7 days late.

1st born 38 weeks 8lb 9oz
2nd born 39 weeks 10lb 9oz
3rd born 40 weeks 9lb 13oz
4th due October by growth chart could be just over 9lb
Bit of a mix for me.

LadyWithLapdog Thu 24-Aug-17 23:28:10

Mine also got smaller. All at 38 weeks (both natural and CS).

angelsgirls Thu 24-Aug-17 23:30:36

Mine got smaller although not by much.
Ds 7lb 5oz born 3 days late
Dd1 7lb 4oz born 9 days late
Dd2 7lb 1oz born 2 days late

DS1 - 9lb 13oz full term
DS2 - 8lb 3oz - 4 days early

Don't believe everything they say. Also, at almost full grown, DS2 is the more solid and weighs more.

Not true here, my first was my biggest.

Thanks for all your messages put my mind at rest a bit! Sorry not sure how to reply to each person yet I'm not used to posting. I was just worried as every pregnancy I've had problems I've had 2 little girls first was born at 38 weeks at 6lb 5 no problems really bit of bleeding at first and a bit after birth then lost one little boy at 24weeks problems from 5weeks pregnant and none after birth then little girl born at 12days over no problems pregnancy but quite a bit during and after birth so I'm always worried sick with pregnancies as I've not really had any good ones I'm keeping everything crossed everything goes fine this time x

Girl 6lbs
Boy 7lbs 14ozs
Girl 7lbs 7ozs

First was 2 weeks early, next two were each around a week early,

travis45 Fri 25-Aug-17 05:25:17

1st - 8lbs 3

2nd - 9lbs 5

Will come back when 3rd has arrived.

SuperBeagle Fri 25-Aug-17 05:45:28

Not true for me.

DC1: 7lb 3oz, 9 days late
DC2: 8lb 6oz, 11 days late
DC3: 7lb 14oz, 14 days late
DC4: 7lb 4oz, 9 days late

So, all over the shop! Two boys and two girls.

Scan measurements are notoriously inaccurate too. DC4 was measuring at around 8lb at 39 weeks, but she was clearly nowhere near that a week and a half later!
