Interested to know the answers to this question smile

Midwife said to me that 'a girl my size isn't going to make a 6 pounder'. For the record Im 5,9, size 10/12. Not the best thing to be told!

That was meant to say how heavy was your baby! I have no idea how you edit the title.

I'm 5ft, size 8 I was told "baby will only be tiny with a petite mum like you"

Lightest was 7.9 heaviest 8.9

She's probably right though, using a customised growth chart which takes into account your heught and weight I would imagine that for someone your height that 6lbs would probably be under the 10th centile

I'm 5"2 and petite mine were DD 6 lb, 5 oz and DS 7lb, 2oz.

I'm 5ft7 dh is 6ft3 and ds was 10lb and very long

I'm 5ft 6 and my son was 11lb 9oz. I was told I was having a 7lb baby.

I'm 5"8 and my husband is 6"4. We knew she wasn't going to be small but even we were surprised by a very long 10lb 10oz baby! She's still really tall but nothing wrong with a big, healthy baby. She wasn't really chunky, just long and solid!

I'm 5'1, my daughters were 5lb6, 7lb and 5lb13. All are very big for their ages, especially my eldest who at 7 is almost up to my chin x

SuffyBummers Tue 14-Feb-17 20:04:10

We're both tallish and slimmish- I'm 5ft8, DH is 6ft and DS was 7lb5 so not massive. Don't panic!

Lules Tue 14-Feb-17 20:04:12

5"2, size 8/10 and 9 lb 8! He did get a bit stuck though. And I looked like a moveable house from about 7 months.

babyblabber Tue 14-Feb-17 20:06:13

I'm 5ft 3 and my babies were 11lbs, 9lbs, 9lbs 10 and 9lbs 2 so I would say in my case my height was irrelevant! DH is 6ft 2 and skinny.

oleoleoleole Tue 14-Feb-17 20:07:24

DS 1 9lb 2oz 60 cm long
DS 2 7lb 6oz 50 cm long

Both term babies.

Whatasmashingpumpkin Tue 14-Feb-17 20:08:31

I'm 5ft 3 and a size 16, DD1 was 6lb4

Simonely11 Tue 14-Feb-17 20:08:32

It does seem that smaller women can go either way, whereas a tall woman will undoubtedly have a larger baby.

EccentricPickle Tue 14-Feb-17 20:10:22

I'm 5'3 and weighed about 8 stone pre babies. I was 4 lbs 8 oz when I was born (full term).

I thought my babies would be tiny. DD1 was 8 lbs 7.5 oz and was 57cms long. DD2 was 4 ounces lighter and 3cms shorter.

Maudlinmaud Tue 14-Feb-17 20:11:40
