9 lbs, 10 oz and I was almost 3 weeks past my due date.  So either they were really off on their estimations or I was just really stubborn!

small! 6 pounds 11 oz. I’m hoping to have babes around that size. My brothers were 9 pounders. Shudder

@Ugoob:  I was an 8 lb baby, and the father of my daughter was 10 lbs. I blame him! I was 2 weeks over and she was 11 lbs 4. EEK!

I was a smaller baby (6lb. 11oz.) and born exactly a week before my due date. There was only one other little girl born in the hospital I was in on the day I was born, who weighed over 10lbs. Apparently, I looked very small compared to her.

My younger brothers were 7lb. 9oz. (born 4 days before due date), and 7lb. 12oz. (born exactly one week before due date). I don’t remember what DH’s exact weight was, but I believe it was in the range of 7lb. 2oz. – 7lb. 6oz. For over a year now, we’ve been trying desperately for our first child, and when we finally do get our bundle of joy, I suspect they will fall somewhere in the 7lb. range.

I was on the small side – 6lbs. 10oz., and 2 weeks late to boot (I probably would’ve stayed in there even longer, but my mom’s doctor insisted on inducing her).

My brother and I were both 9 lbs 5 oz, and our younger sister was 10 lb 5 oz.

Our poor mom…

Darling Husband & I were both 6lbs & change.  Both of our mothers smoked during pregnancy though, so we were expecting a baby a little bigger than what we were…

BabyDane was 8lbs4oz!  I was 8 days past due though, so she had extra baking time.

I was 8lbs 2oz and born on time.  Darling Husband was about 8lbs 5 or 6 oz?  He was the smallest baby, as all the others were 9 lbs and the last over 10 lbs (all boys).  My brothers were 7lbs and 6lbs something, but they were twins so born a few weeks early (but still full term).

So I’m guessing ours will be right around 8-8.5 lbs.  Not planning on her being smaller than 8 lbs!

I’m tall (6’0) and my dad’s side is really tall, though my mom’s side is pretty average.  Darling Husband is as tall as me though his brothers are all taller.

All three of us were exactly one week past due.  I was just over 6 lbs, my brother was 8 lbs even and my sister was just over 7 lbs.

I was a small baby, but only because I was premature.  However, now I am the tallest of all my sisters hahaha!!!!
