@Ugoob:  I was 2 days early and weighed 5lbs 6 oz. My sister was only 2 oz bigger than me. My momma made tiny babies.

I already know Cora won’t be that small. I am heavy set now, have gestational diabetes, and her father was 9 1/2 lbs at birth! She’s looking to be about 8lbs.

I was 1 lb. 8 oz. and 7-8 weeks early. Surprisingly my organs were developed enough that I could survive without any assistance or life support. I was not expected to survive, but here I am posting! 🙂


My DH was around 9 lbs, so I’m pretty sure we will have a good sized baby.

I weighed around 6 lbs at birth. I was the first one too, and I think that might have an impact. I was the smallest of all four of us.

I was weird lol. My mom told me I was technically supposed to be the biggest out of the three of us ( I have two sisters), but at about 8-8 1/2 months pregnant my mom got pregnancy induced Bell’s palsy and it slowed my growth. I was supposed to be about 8 or 9lbs, but I was 5lbs 3oz when I was born. I was only 6 days early.

I was 9 lbs 8 oz and overdue. My brother was 10 lbs 11 oz – my poor mom!

I think DH was a large baby as well. Somewhere in the 9 lb range, and he had a huge head. I am scared!! Haha

At birth, I weighed just over 10 pounds. My mom’s pretty petite (and was induced with me since I was around a week late), but out of my three siblings and I, her smallest baby was my older brother, who was a bit under 8 pounds.

I don’t know DBF’s birth weight, but I do know that as a twin, that he would have been significantly smaller than I was. Either way, I’m pretty sure he was a natural birth – his twin is eight minutes older.

I was 4lbs 14oz and 4 weeks early (but completely healthy, no NICU or O2), DH was 10lbs 14oz and 2 weeks late! I REALLY hope this baby is somewhere in the middle! The best part is that my mom is 5’9” so I had room (but she’s pretty skinny ~115lbs) and DH mom is TINY, like maybe 5′ and 90lbs, but she gained over 75lbs when she was pregnant with him (possible gestational diabetes?)! I think the most my mom gained with any of us was 25lbs, and she was all belly, so I hopefully I’ll be like her 🙂
