@Juliepants: I haven’t had my baby yet but I can tell you that my nephew was 8 lb 10 oz.  His father was 8 lb 13 oz and his mother was around 8 lb 5 oz or so (maybe a little more).


I was 7 lb 2 oz and my husband was 8 lb 13 oz so I’m hoping mine will bring down the weight.  What I’m most worried about?  My husband was 23.5 inches.  That’s almost two feet!

Fiance has Scottish lineage so he has these big broad shoulders… BUT he was a twin, so he was like 3 or 4 pounds hahah. =)  I was 6lbs.

I was 1lb13oz., and our DD was 8lbs5oz. I don’t remember how much Fiance weighs, but I’m pretty sure he was around 8lbs5oz., as well.

I don’t have kids and we are not married or TTC until after the wedding, but I’m scared too!! I was 8lbs 8oz and Fiance was 10lbs.. I’m only 5’3, and SUPER scared of how big our potential children could be. I’m interested what people’s answers will be.

I have no idea how much my parents weighed when they were born… But I was 10 lbs 12 oz so if/when I ever have kids I hope they aren’t that big!

I was 5lbs 15 1/2oz and born a month early.

Fiance was 4lbs don’t know the ounces and born three weeks early.

If our child is like us, they would be tiny and early.

Dh and I were both 6 pounds.  AND he has a tiny head.  We haven’t had kids yet, but I would love them to follow suit!

Totally weird, but we were all EXACTLY the same weight…6 pounds, 9 ounces.

@Juliepants: DH likes to tease me about something similar- not that we’re even trying for awhile but he was 10+ as was his brother (one of them was 2 weeks late though), but I was 5-6lbs. We’re hoping for something in the middle.

I dont have kids so no info from me, but I have a friend who’s a tiny little 5’2 105 lb girl.  Her hubby I think was 10 lbs and some, she had a 9lb 6oz baby.
