View Full Version : Going Overdue and Birthweight of Baby
I was just googling VBAC in relation to Big Babies...and I came across another Aussie parenting forum. I had a little look around...and discovered that a lot of the mothers who had come close to 2 weeks overdue (like me: I was spot on 2 weeks past EDD) had a similar birthweight baby!
My daughter was 2 weeks late and weighed in at 4.67kg.
Just wondering if anyone else who went overdue had a similar weight?
I'm curious to know if DD's size is due to the fact that she was overdue and nothing else (mostly just so I can think about baby birthweights and VBAC).
DS was 9 days over and 3585g (7lb 14oz), I'm assuming had he been born on time, he would have been less than DD who was 3 days over and 3496g (7lb 11oz).
Not exactly the answer to your question :rolleyes: , but I spose what I'm getting at is that you won't necessarily have a bigger baby (if that's what you're getting at?!)
Sorry, no help at all, am I???!!! :o
I was 4 weeks late when my poor mother was pregnant - in summer in Darwin and lost quite a bit of weight during those final weeks. I looked like I had been in the pool waaaay too long.
I know technology wasn't the same back then with guessing of due dates, but I was 7lb 1oz and 3 weeks overdue.
Similiar situation to you SassyMummy pretty much 2 weeks overdue here and a 4 1/2kg baby.;)
Em was 10 days past her EDD and she was 3180g....I was 3 weeks past my EDD when I was born but only 6lbs 5oz, tho the placenta had started to fail and no one believed Mum about her dates!!
ds was 18 days over and was 8lb 11oz
dd was 7 days over and was 8lb 4 oz.
My 1st son was 10'3 (4616g and size 00 at birth) at was 13 days over due but my next son was born at 39 weeks and 4 days and was 9'13 (4450g and size 000 at birth) and I dont want to even think how big he would of gotten if I went over due with him and my 3rd son was born at 38 weeks and was 8'3 (3700g and size 00000 at birth) and was a big shock to me as I was huge and thought I was having another 10 pounder. The funniest think was that when people asked how big the 3rd son was I said a small 8 pounds and they would just look at me funny till I explained it
i went a week over with my ds and he weighed 9pound 1 and i still think it was because i was over due hehe i was HUGE....
DS1 was 5 days late and he weighed 9lbs and DS2 was 3 days late and he weighed 8lbs 4oz.
I was 10 days over with DD1 and she was 7lb10oz (3.6kg I think). DD2 was 8 days over and only just 7lb (3155g). So I'm not really sure the theory of bigger babies is quite true.:confused:
I had my little girl at 40 weeks 1 day and she weighed in at a healthy 4.165kg - I would hate to know how big she would have been if I went 2 weeks over!
My DD was 13 days OD & she was 5kg :eek:
My DS1 was 11 days over and was 4.77kgs (10lb 8oz).
DS2 was born by elective C/S and was delivered at 40 weeks on the dot and was 5.1kgs (11lb 4oz). He would have been HUGE if he went over!!:eek:
I have been told birth weight is usually genetic (except for when there are complications such as gestational diabetes, trouble with the placenta etc). My DH was 10lb 10oz born and I was 9lb 4oz so I guess I had little hope.
We are expecting our third child in December and my GP said not to be surprised if I make the 12lb mark!! The obstetrician at the hospital said we will book a C/S for 39 weeks this time to try to keep the size down a little. So I guess cooking time is important,but if you're destined to have a big bub then that's what you're going to have.
Kailah was 10 days over and 4.130kg. I think for sure if they were to be born earlier they wouldn't be so big. One of the midwives said to me that if they had any idea of how big she was going to be they would've induced me eariler, but hey, she's here now and healthy that's the main thing.
:) Liam was 5 days over and born at 3.1kg - 7.1lb Only a little man.
Interestingly, we had an ultrasound at 37w that said he was going to be a big bub - they estimated he weighed 3.75kg at the scan.
My son was two weeks over and weighed 7lb 2oz, so really wasn't very big at all.
My son was ten days over and weighed 4.85kg - a real whopper!:)
My DS 2 was 9 days over (after being induced) and weighed 4.4kgs(9lbs13ozs). I was huge and very, very uncomfortable. I could hardly walk and my hips ached and ached. Funnily enough he is now the smallest of the 3 boys.
I was 13 days overdue and DD was 9lb4oz!
My DS was 5 days over and weighed 4224gms
DS1 was 7 days over and weighed 7lb
DS2 was 2 days over and weighed 7lb12oz
DS3 was 5 days over and weighed 9lb 12oz now that was a shock!
I am due Aug 11th and I am massive again - hoping bubs is under 9lb12oz :eek:
my first was 2wks early and was just under 6lb (2720g)
Malakai was 7days over due and 9lb 1oz
DD was 4 days late and weighed in at 10lbs 8ozs..
jaiden was 9 days over due n was 3.340 kg (7lb 3oz)
DS was born 1 day over and he was 7lb 6oz
DD was induced 9 days over and she was 7lb 15oz
There was about 300grams difference in their weight...they were the exact same length (50cm) and DD's head was 1cm bigger.
Keiaani was 5 days late and weighed 10 pounds 1 ounce
DS was 9 days overdue and weighed 10lb 11oz. I hope the next one is smaller :fingerscrossed:
Eliza was 9 days over and 3970 think that's 8lb 12oz
dd 1 was 11 days over and was 7p15 and dd 2 was 9 days over and was 7p 13:D
DD was on her due date at 3620g (8lb)
DS was 2 days before due date and was 4480g (9lb14oz)
So, he was a bit of a shock at almost 2 pounds heavier than my first!
My son was 14 days over due date and was 3.65kgs and 52.5cms but i still think that he weighed more cause he was weighed 7hrs after delivery.
DS was 8 days over(induced on the 7th day) and 7lb 1/2oz or 3190g. And 51cm long.
My daughter was induced at 5 days over and she weighed in at 6p 9oz but that was due to the placenta being no good when the delivered it there was only under 1/4 of it any good:thumbsdown: so for the last not sure how long she was malnurished:thumbsdown:
DD was 12 days overdue. She weighed 3.4kg (7lb 8oz). 49.5cm long.
Exactly 1 week overdue: 3.3kg or 7lb 7oz and 50.5cm long
i was overdue with my second girl, 10days, seemed like forever for me! but still.. she was 9lb! rather big for me cause im only 5ft tall! anyhow, things went well, after a bit of help from the midwives who got her unstuck and she had her shoulders stuck.. rather painful! anyone else had shoulder trouble??:)
ds2 had shoulder dystosia (got stuck lol) aswell.. he was 7days overdue and 9lb 7oz... I'm tiny so its understandable that it happened.. the midwives and doctors got him out eventually but he wasnt breathing very well because his face had been squished up against something (his head was bruised and they checked to make sure his nose wasnt broken)
have you had any problems with hip pain since the delivery?? my right hip (which was sore during the pregnancy) is painful when I go from sitting to standing or try roll onto that side..
DD was 9 days overdue and weighed 4080g (9lb on the knocker).
DS was 12 days over and weighed 4095 - close enough to 9lbs
my dd now 23mths was 15 days late not from lack of trying to coax her out but she was 9lbs 14oz my big strong girl and she is still just as strong willed today as well as always late to everything ha!
My son was 2weeks over due, i had him the day before i was booked in to be induced as many already know, and he was 8lb 11oz (3.95kg), and measured 56cm long, he is now just over 12 months and weights a hefty 11.1kg and is 81.5cm long.
To all that have posted what were your babies weights at 12 months, Everyone thinks my son is older than he is, Am I alone????
My DD was 9 days late and she was 2990.
Tarquin was 6 days over, weighed 3720grams 8pds2&1/2oz.
At the 38 week scan (I had PIH) they estimated he was over 5kgs. was a bit of a shock (a pleasant one) when he was over a kilo lighter.

Mum to Blaze and Bailey
my ds1 was 7 days over and was 4.07kg (8 pound 15) at birth he ended up in SCN with jaundice and an infection and feeding problems and was in under the lights and i had to giggle when i overheard another mum say "gee that prem is huge!" lmao
my first DD was only 3 days over, weighed amost 4kg, and was an emergency c/s.
my second was 10 days over, weighed only 2.8kg, born by VBAC.
sorry if i screwed up your theory :o
but if it helps i dont believe my dd's size had anything to do with whether i could push them out or not :)
My DD was 7 days overdue and weighed in at 8 lbs, 11 oz (3960g).
