  • My cousin at nine months hardly looked pregnant, we all thought the baby would be a low six pounds low and behold she had an 8 lb baby! She also had no stretch marks what-so-ever consider your self one of the lucky ones!

  • He's not necessarily going to be smaller. My doctor was concerned about my first because I was measuring behind so I got an extra ultrasound to check on his size, he was normal sized just positioned in there in a way that didn't show as much as some others. He was born 2 weeks early weighing 7 lbs 8 oz. And I know a lady who just had a baby in April. It was her 6th child and she looked maybe 4 months pregnant by the time the baby was born, everyone was worried about her but she kept saying this was the biggest she had ever gotten with any of her kids, and the baby ended up weighing 8 1/2 lbs. I don't know how it's possible but some women's bodies hide the baby more than others do.

  • I want to add that she was a skinny lady too, it's not that she was overweight and hiding the baby well. We still don't know where that baby was hiding!
