    8 pounds 7 ounces, naturally (but 3 hours of pushing!) I was 10.8 but my mom had a c-section.

    We’ve had 3! Our first was 7 lbs. 6 oz and 20.2 inches long, our second was 8 lbs. 4 oz and 18 inches long, and the third was 9 lbs. 4 oz and 20 inches long. The deliveries were vaginal but I did have an epidural each time because the labors were induced. I was incredibly lucky to have 3 healthy beautiful babies, but I think I’m done because I am not about to have a 10 pound baby since they seem to go up a pound each time.

    @Ree723:  My son was 6lbs 14oz at birth but 20lbs at 4 months, so I don’t think birth weight really has anything to do with it lol

    @Winter2013:    Oh no! You’re dashing my hopes!   🙂   I have several friends who had 7 lbs babies that didn’t hit 20 lbs until 12 – 14 months, that’s what I’ve been thinking was the norm.  Sigh.  Maybe it’s time to start doing some bicep curls and tricep dips to strengthen these arms just in case…

    I don’t have any children yet, but I was born at 32 weeks at a little under 3 lbs, and SO was born at 28 weeks (they didn’t expect him to make it) just under 2 lbs. I wish small babies (but not preemies!) for you! <3

    He ended up being 6lbs 11oz, 21 inches at 39 weeks 1 day (vaginal, epidural turned off)- this was after multiple ultrasounds scaring the crap out of me that he was due to be over 9lbs at 40 weeks (I’m barely 5 feet tall, didn’t think he would come naturally).

    Both my girls were born at 38 wks and one was 9lbs 5 oz the other was 6lbs even.  My grandmother had huge babies though all over 10.5 lbs. Yikes! Of course she had four boys back when they didn’t induce so they hung out in mom for a LONG time LOL.

    I love this thread.

    I have not had a baby yet, but my doctor told me that if my baby continues to grow at the exact rate she is growing at (I don’t really know if their growth stays constant or not) she will be about 6 lbs and 5-12 ounce at full term. I am excited to see how much she ends up weighing!!!

    DD#1 was 7lbs 2oz

    DD#2 was 7lbs 1oz.

    Apparently that is the size babies that I make!  Both were delivered 2 days before their due dates.

    My baby was 6lbs 8 and 1/2 oz, and he still got stuck!

    I had to have a cesaerian, after 18 hours of labor, why couldn’t the doctor figure that out ,like maybe, 1 hour in, why wait 18? LOL
