Am due dc3 later this year and would like to know other people's birth weights. I know this will have no influence over what mine will be but might reassure me....
DC1 was 7 1/2lb
DC2 was 10 1/2lb shock
I'm just hoping that it's possible to have a smaller baby after a big one confused
So did yours get bigger each time?

I only had the one but surely after giving birth to 10lber everything after that will just slide elegantly out?

You'll be fine. Don't stress.

Mine were similar to yours, 8lb 7oz and 10lb 14oz. I stopped there so can't help you!

My mum had 5 babies, all bigger than the last, no 5 was 11lb 3oz!

DS 9lbs 1oz 40+6
DD 8lbs 40+4

TheWoollybacksWife Sun 24-Apr-16 20:51:07

DC1 = 6lb 9 (40+5)
DC2 = 8lb 2 (40+12)
DC3 = 9lb 5 (40+2)

Sorry, I'm a bit of a cliche with each baby increasing in size blush

Thanks for the replies
Taylor 11lb 3oz shock I'm praying this doesn't happen to me

My son was 8llb 4 oz. My daughter 6llb 9 oz. She was born after him but I was so sick with her I was lighter at the end of my pregnancy with her still in my tummy than I was at the start!!
You'll be fine after a 10 pounder you won't notice winkconfusedgrin

I'm liking these ones that get smaller grin most people I've spoken to their babies have all got bigger each time.
There is still hope grin

mogloveseggs Sun 24-Apr-16 21:02:01

Dd 6lb 11 39+6
Ds 6lb 6 40+4
Both small but midwife with ds said birthweight can go off parents birthweight - dh was 5lb 11 I was 4lb 11

Dc1 11lbs 10 ozs
Dc2 8lbs 10 ozs - definitely possible to have smaller subsequent children smile

flojo73 Sun 24-Apr-16 21:05:20

DS1 11lb 3
DS2 9lb 6
Dd 1 8lb 2
As you can see, mine (thankfully) got progressively smaller!

Buttwing Sun 24-Apr-16 21:07:21

There is hope!grin

7lb 10 girl
7lb 5 girl
10lb 5 boy

We knew he was a boy, thought he might be a bit heavier than the girls, so maybe 8lb or so. Ha ha!

5.7 born at 37 weeks.

rubberducker Sun 24-Apr-16 21:09:49

DS1 - 9.3
DS2 - 9.8

Currently 31 weeks with DS3 but he's looking pretty big going by scans. However my consultant told me that, on average, second babies are the biggest and that people who go on to have 3 or more tend to find that their babies get smaller again.

TheSunHasGotItsHatOn Sun 24-Apr-16 21:10:30

Dd1 8lb 4 @ 42wks
Ds 10lb 10 @ 42wks+3
Dd2 7lb 12 @ 39wks
I was induced with all 3 dd2 at 39 weeks as ds was so big it ended in an emergency delivery after a 72 hour induction and I refused take the risk of it happening again.
