    Mine were smaller.
    ds was 7lb 13oz, ds2 was 6lb 11oz, ds3 was 5lb 8oz and ds4 was 4lb 9.5oz.
    With my mum they varied, i was 6lb even, sis was 7lb even and then my brother was born last at 6lb 14oz.

    If that is the case then I'm a bit nervous about having any more babies, as DS was 9lb 10oz (4.375kg).....so I hate to think what the next one will be if they get bigger

    ETA: when I was born I was 8lb 10oz, and then my sister followed 2 years later and was 10lb 2oz. Ouch, poor Mum!

    My DD was 7lb and my DS was 7lb 10oz.

    My older sister was under 6lb (was not prem), then my big bro was 8lb 10oz, then I was 7lb 10oz and my younger sister was smaller than me (dont know exactly what she weighed).
