  • Wow. I thought my guy was big! LOL He was 4 weeks early, 7lbs and 20 inches. The nurses thought I was nuts because he was "average" size to them....until I reminded them he was early and told them my other two were over 8 1/2 lbs and 9 1/2 lbs at full term. LOL

  • Wow, I thought my guy was big... he was born at 35 weeks and he was 6lbs 8oz. I know my dates weren't off though, the OB and nurses kept asking if I was sure! lol

    He was perfect, just like a full-term baby except he slept a LOT and he was redder than full-term babies, I guess because his skin was still really thin?
