I was 7 lb 11 oz, my husband was around 6 lb but he was a twin so he was HUGE for that

But my older brother was 8.5 lb and my younger brother was 9 and change…..

I was almost 2 feet long, but 7lbs. Looked like a long chicken.

Fiance was about 9lbs, not sure how long, but I think we were close.

So we could either have a long, skinny baby, or a big, long baby. yikes.

Yet another reason why I think a section is best for me. Fiance worries about this, too, he sometimes says he thinks I’m too little for a baby, LOL. WTF.

@CorgiTales: Haha, I asked the same thing. Apparently my Mum was still getting her ‘period’, didn’t gain weight, etc.. no clues into the fact that she was pregnant. She felt sick one day (in the 5th month) thinking it was the flu, but, nope.

I was 7lbs and two weeks late and Fiance was 6lbs and a month early. But both of us have really broad shoulders so that scares me a bit.

I was 6lbs 13oz and my husband was 4lbs (he’s now 6’2″, 240 lbs).  Our little guy was 6lbs 4oz.  My pelvis was too small for him to get through, so even though he was small, I had to have a csection.
