    Default did you babies get bigger with each baby?

    hello ladies

    this is the 2nd time ive posted this i tried posting it with a poll but it wouldnt work...

    now this is what I would like to know...

    Did your babies either;

    A) Get bigger with each subsequent baby
    B) Get smaller after each subsequent baby
    C) Had a combination of both first big then small, big etc babies? or the other way...

    I would love to hear your answers!

    Ive heard that each baby gets bigger with each subsequent child, well my last baby was 10 lbs 13 oz 40 cm head, which was bigger than my 1st at 10 lbs 2 oz 38cm head, I dont want another c section and I know my only true way of avoiding this is if my next bub was magically somehow smaller...

    I would like to hear from mums who have had bubs to the same father too, or if it wasnt just advise so , so I know. all of mine were to the same dad, same as this one, so I think Im in for it!

    My first was 9lb 1oz and 56.5cm long. HC -37cm.

    Second 10lb 2oz, 54cm long. HC 36.5cm.

    No. 3 is due in 10 days so I'll know soon how big he is. My first two are girls, third a boy. I'm very curious as to what he will weigh..it's been a big guessing game with my family this pregnancy.
    I've had two vaginal births too. No c-section planned this time either.

    Same father too.

    I am so glad to see that the weights of babies to one mother are all normally around the same weight as their siblings give or take a few oz, Or at least that is what I am hoping with number four on the way

    I only have one bub so far so can't comment on my own experience. But I was born 7pd 2oz 7 days early and my sister was then born 2.5 years later at 6pd 2oz exactly on her due date.

    So for my mum her second was smaller.

    I have quite a few friends who had quite big differences between the first and second, with the second being smaller... ie. one friend had a 9lb 5oz boy, then a 7lb 2oz girl 2 years later.

    My SIL had 3, and her first was her biggest.
