  • I had a boy first, then a girl.

    Son: 8lbs 1 oz, 21 inches (I think) and I don't remember the head circumference. He's now almost 10 and the size of most 12 year olds.

    Daughter: 7 lbs, 10 oz (we were IN room 710), 20 1/4 inches, and the same head size as her brother. She's now 6.5 and the size of most 7 year olds.

    In my mind they were the same size, given that one was a boy and the other a girl. I wouldn't want them any other way.

  • I did want a boy first but I had a girl first. She was 9lbs 3oz, 21 inches long, born at 37 weeks. My son was 8lb 6oz 21 1/2 inches long, born right at 36 weeks.

  • The only baby I have carried successfully to term was a girl, 7 pounds 1 ounce, 20 inches long. I had thought when I was pregnant that I wanted a boy, but once I had my baby girl and she was healthy, I couldn't have asked for anything better. I wish I could have one more, but no luck so far because of recurrent miscarriages.

  • i wanted a girl and i got a girl- 6.9 lbs. she was sooo small, i barely looked pregnant when i was full term. she had to spend a few days in the NICU also for her nasal passages being half the size of what they should have been, and had a few difficulties with breathing after we got her home and until she wasn't a nose breather anymore. even now at 6 she snores like a freight train in her sleep. of course i didn't want her to be born with issues, but other than that she was a very healthy baby.

  • I had a boy first, 5 lbs 6 oz at 37 weeks, 1 day. My second was a boy as well, 4 lbs 1 oz, at 34 weeks 3 days. I would have preferred to be farther along with both of my pregnancies.

  • A Boy 7 pounds 6 ounces ... I had wanted a girl
    A Girl 7 pounds 0.5 ounces ... I wanted a girl but I thought it would be easier to have another boy.
