  • How big was your baby?

    Hey all

    Just want to start something fun, and thought it would be fun to compare our babies sizes when they were born, and see who had the biggest or smallest...

    I'll start.....

    My baby boy Joshua was 9lb 1oz... OUCH!!!

    Eloise was 8lb 2oz (or 3.69kg) and she was 51cm long.

    Glad I didn't have a 9 pounder - we were sure we were going to though - I was 9 and a half and my partner was 10 something!!

    Also - she was 3 days overcooked...

            re:Harry's size

            HI everyone,
            Harry was 4 day s early and weighed in at 6lbs 6oz or 2.9kgs and 54cms long. Sorry Tracy Joshua's still the biggest.

              Georgia's turn

              Georgia Rose was 4 days overdue and weighed 6lb 14 oz (3kg 120gms), although she didn't feel that small in my belly. Joshua still holds the record!

                Hi Milkshake, My 3rd baby was 9lb 1oz, too! I've equalled the record. Baby no 1 was 8lb 4oz, baby no 2 was 8lb 12 oz, baby no 3 was 9lb 1oz and baby no 4 was 8 lb 4 oz. So it isn't entirely true that they get bigger each time - only til number four! My number 3 was 10 days overdue, so maybe I don't officially qualify. Number 4 was also 10 days over, and was still smaller. Who's next?

                  baby sizes

                  Lachlan was 6 days late (the longest 6 days of my life) and weighed 6 pounds 15 1/2 oz. (just under 7 pounds) - or 3155 gms. He was 50cm long.

                  I was told he'd be at least 8 pounds (and me and hubby bigger babies) but he stopped growing towards the end (the cord was flat when he was born).

                  I have a friend whose boy was 10 pounds 3 born!
