I know this has been done soooo many times but I'm curious! My bump is huge this time and everyone keeps telling me I am going to have a massive 2nd baby and long labour.

Dd was 7lb 1oz and I had a 2 hour labour.

Thanks smile

ds1 9lb 13oz 3hrs
dd 6lb 1|2oz and ds2 7lb 2oz (twins) 47 mins for both!!

memorylapse Tue 15-Sep-09 15:52:03

dd1 12 hours, 3 hours of pushing, forceps 8lb 9oz

ds1 3 hours start to finish 7lb 14oz (admittedly he was a month early)

ds2 3.5 hours 9lb 7
dd2 1 hour 30 mins from start to finish (4 pushes) 8lb 3 oz

the last 2 were induced at 38 weeks so I guess they would have been heavier

all labours are different thoughsmile

Thanks everyone. I am telling myself that they are jealous that my first labour was short and good.

Very interesting to see how different your labours and baby weights are.

DT's prem labour over a couple of days, ended in emergency c sec. 2lb 4oz and 2lb 14oz.

DD 10lb 2oz and 8 hours.

mumcah Tue 15-Sep-09 21:05:42

DD two and a half days ending in EMCS.9lb 5oz

Comma2 Tue 15-Sep-09 21:15:42

DD1 7 oz 9 something, induced, 24 h, 20 min pushing.
And I was gigantic, gained 50 lbs, and a lot of it was amniotic and other fluid. They thought babe would be 9 lbs. Not to scare me or anything.
