    I weighed 7.6, DF weighed 4-something (he was a preemie).

    At my first u/s they said LO was measuring 5 days behind my EDD, but at my a/s he measured 2 days ahead of my EDD, so whatever that means size wise? Apparently he's a week bigger than estimated, I hope he's not too big!

    I weighed a little over ten and DH weighed a little over nine! I fear for my life. 

    This is our first, and our A/S is on the 13th, so we'll know then how LO is doing.

    I was 9lbs DH was barely 7 lbs.

    At 20 weeks Baby Bajan was 11 oz and in the 47th percentile for measurements.

     

    Here is a wedding pic- note I am in 4 inch heels here. DH is often mistaken for a football player.

    I thought it was hilarious when my Mom told me the other day what a big baby I was and then I stopped growing at 4'11.

    How much did you and DH weigh at birth? DH was 8lbs 2oz and I was 10lbs 1oz (yikes!) Hoping my LO is an average of the two of us.

    How is LO measuring right now? At a/s scan today LO was measuring at 12oz. Not sure where that falls in the percentages.

    DH and I were both between 8 & 9 lbs (don't remember exact numbers right now, and too tired to go look)

    DS was 7 lbs 8 oz at 41w2d

    How much did you and DH weigh at birth?  Me:  8lbs. 2.5 oz, DH:  8 lbs. 10 oz.

    If you've already had a baby, what did that baby weigh?  9 lbs. 13 oz.

    How is LO measuring right now?  At his 10 month appointment he was in the 50th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height but I can't remember what the exact measurements were.    Needless to say, he's thinned out quite a bit!

    ETA:  Oh, THIS LO!  Misunderstood the assignment!  This LO is "average."  Of course, that's what they told me with DS!

    hubby and I were both about 8 1/2 pounds at birth. Kind of funny because he is a foot taller and weighs twice what I do!

    At the first u/s the gave me a due date a couple days early, at the next u/s another couple days early. So she is measuring 4-5 days ahead.

    I don't hold out much hope for having a small baby, I wouldn't be surprised with a 9 pounder. I expressed concern to MW about having a giant baby (as I am a small framed person) and she said that babies are just getting bigger now, and she had someone deliver a 10 pounder vaginally a few weeks ago so she said a big baby doens't mean I'll have issues.

    we'll see though! my mom is very small too, like me and she gave birth to 7 of us vaginally with no epis and most of us were 8lbs + so perhaps I have genetically good hips for childbirthin' even though it doesn't LOOK like I do!

    If you've already had a baby, what did that baby weigh? 7lbs 8oz and 7lbs 6oz

    How is LO measuring right now? a couple days ahead, I am hoping she follows the trend of her brother and sister, I have enough stretch marks from my 7.5 pounders, I don't think I need one bigger than that!

    How much did you and DH weigh at birth? I was 7 lbs 3 oz, 21.75" long, DH was 6 lbs 4 oz and 19" long.

    If you've already had a baby, what did that baby weigh? He was 10 lbs and 22".

    How is LO measuring right now? At 20w2d LO was ESTIMATED to be 12 oz.

    I really don't put much stock into the parents birthweight vs. children comparison as it pretty much didn't apply to us AT ALL.  Also FWIW, the u/s weights especially this early are estimates, DS was measuring at 11 oz at his 20 week scan and that is no way indicative of a large baby.  It was until my 32 week scan that showed him to be estimated at 5 lbs 13 oz did we get the you are going to have a 10 pounder speech.  I also had 18 u/s last pregnancy (including weekly starting at 30 weeks) and I'm actually on track to have more for this one.  DS measured right on time all the way up to the 30 week when he started measuring slightly ahead and then he just took off.  With this LO, I was 4 days behind at 6 and 7 weeks, a full week ahead at 12 weeks and then only 2 days ahead at 20 weeks.  Inside baby's grow just as differently as outside ones and have different growth spurts. 

    Also, just because baby may be bigger at birth doesn't mean it's a lifetime of being big.  Like I said, DS was 10 lbs at birth and now at 21 months he barely weighs 25 lbs, which is around the 10th percentile and he's probably about 3 feet tall now which is above the 90th percentile.
