  • #1 was 10lbs. #2 was 9lbs 8oz. #3 was 12lbs #4 was 10lbs #5 was 10lbs and #6 was 11lbs 11oz. All were 21inches long, all born without pain meds and the last 3 were born at home. No diabetes or anything, I just have big babies. I was over 10lbs at birth.

  • My son was 8lbs and 21 inches long. He was born 6 weeks early so I would say he is was a really big baby. We know my date of conception because it was IVF. On his due date he was 15 lbs so I am glad he was a bit early not sure I could have handled that delivery vaginally. I didn't have diabetes he was just big. My husband was 12lbs and he was a week early. Guess it runs in the family. My son is 8 years old and is 4' 10" tall he is very skinny and tall now.

  • My middle son was 8lbs 10ozs and 19 1/2 inches. He always measured big and since my husband was like 9lbs 6oz at birth it didnt surprise me that we got a big one.

    My older and younger sons were under 8lbs.
