    Default Elective Caesar and 2nd baby weight.

    This is probably a silly question... but you know how (generally, but not always) second babies tend to bigger than firstborn... do you think that applies with caesar bubs if they're born a couple of weeks early.

    My first DS was born by emergency caesar at 37weeks +6 days and weighed 6lbs, 5 ozs (I was induced early because of cholestasis but he went into distress, hence the caesar).

    I'm now pregnant again and will be having an elective caesar at 37 weeks + 4 days (so technically 2 days earlier).

    Do you think it's likely that my second bub will be bigger??

    Can anyone who may have had consecutive caesars shed any light on this??

    Cheers

    first bub 8pd 13 .. second bub 8pd 2 ..

    but he was delivered a week early .. and probably would have put on more weight in that last week .. where as DS1 was emergency c-section the day before his due date ..
