is it true

so iv heard this but im woundering how true it holds up.
Are the second and third babies and so on of course for those who have more, weigh more at birth then the fist one?
Im having my second my son was 7lbs 9.5oz im not with his father anymore iv since remarrried
we are expecating are first is there a good chance this baby will be bigger or is this like having a first baby since the daddy is different?
Im woundering becuz my SIL first baby was 9lbs 9oz and her second one was 9lbs 11oz. How true is this and does it always happen?

  • Every baby is different. This baby has 50% different genes, so that can also affect how big he is. My younger brother weighed less than I did.

  • Every child is different, as well as every pregnancy.

    it sure happens that the babies get bigger with every pregnancy. but its not always like that. ;)

  • No, that's not true. A baby's weight depends on many factors.

  • There's really no way you can tell for sure. My first was 9lbs. 5oz, second was 8lbs. 7oz and third was 8lbs. 5oz so mine got smaller with each.
