DS 7lb 2oz
DD 7lb 8oz

21 weeks with number three. Really hope he's not much bigger as know what I'm doing with a 7lb delivery IYSWIM! Also hoping for a home birth this time which I will only do if it's looking as though bubba is not a whopper.

mine have got smaller - 3.5kg, 3.3kg, 3kg - though this one is bigger (according to scan) than my last one was at the same gestation.

In order:

6lb 11oz
8lb 1oz
8lb 9oz
7lb 13oz

DS1 8lb 3oz
DS2 7lb 7oz

So mine got smaller.

Pg now with DC3 so we'll see.

DS1 8lb 2oz - 39 weeks
DS2 9lb 13oz - 41 weeks
DS3 8lb 4oz - 40 weeks
DS4 6lb 8 1/2oz - 35+6 weeks

Was worried after my hefty number 2 but fortunately the massive 11 lb No.3 baby I was convinced I was expecting was a lot smaller!!

youareallcunts Thu 13-Jan-11 15:59:41

Went the opposite way for me!

DD1 - 9 pounds 11

DD2 - 7 pounds 14

(DD1 cooked for 9 days longer than DD2 though)

Wallace Thu 13-Jan-11 16:09:01

ds1 3 days early 6 11
dd 2 days early 7 10
ds2 2 days early 8 4
ds3 5 days early 7 3

tlise Thu 13-Jan-11 17:36:29

8lb 720 (20 days late)
9lb 8 1/2
6lb 14 (6 days late)
7lb 8 (13 days late)
7lb 1

So no they don't always get bigger its an OWT ;)

Catsmamma Thu 13-Jan-11 17:40:09

ds1 10lb 4oz...two weeks late, poss GD
dd 8lb 8oz....induced two weeks early, diet controlled GD
ds2 10lb 8oz...induced two weeks early, diet controlled GD

AlwaysbeOpralFruitstome Thu 13-Jan-11 17:41:54

8lb 4oz (42 weeks)
9lb 5oz (42 weeks)
7lb 4oz (39 weeks)given another 3 weeks my guess is he would have been about the same weight as DS1.

So sort of...confused

Raahh Thu 13-Jan-11 17:43:36

ds - 6lb 1 (41+1)
dd1 -8lb 2 (41+1)
dd2 - 7lb 10 (39+2 , elcs as had emcs with dd1 as she was big -for me- and got stuck).

GandalfyCarawak Thu 13-Jan-11 17:51:02

DS1 7lb 8
DS2 10lb 2
Though the bigger one was far easier to deliver.

Canella Thu 13-Jan-11 17:52:43

9lbs 4oz - 13 days late
10lbs 13oz - 12 days late
8lbs 6oz - 6 days late

Dc3 felt tiny after whopper dc2 but to most people 8lbs 6 is a big baby!!

Good luck!

LadyintheRadiator Thu 13-Jan-11 17:56:32

DS 7lb 5 at 42 weeks
DD 7lb 5 at 40+6

TotorosOcarina Thu 13-Jan-11 17:58:15

My first was 9lbs! was terrified when DC was cooking!

They said he was massive,

he was only 7lbs 11.

DD (dc3) was 8lbs 5.

DS3 ...? will find out May!

ThatllDoPig Thu 13-Jan-11 18:14:48

Thanks for replies everyone, seems a bit of a lucky dip really, which is reassuring for me.

greenbeanie Thu 13-Jan-11 19:21:20

Here goes, although I don't think this is what you want to here!!
DS1 - 9lb15 (born at 39weeks)
DS2 - 10lb7 (born at 40weeks)
DD1 - 11lb11.5 (born at 40+12)!!

Having said that labour with dd1 was 1hr40mins with no tears so actually not too bad.

Habbibu Thu 13-Jan-11 19:23:44

dd 10lb 11oz
ds 9lb 1oz

Both 40+ 1, so everyone surprised that ds was (relatively) little.
