Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Can you rattle off your child's birth weight and birth time?

I was just in a conversation with some moms recently about birth weights and times they were born and they all had those things memorized. They could just rattle it off like it was nothing. I know estimations of these things. I know my first was born around noon and weighed a little less than 7 pounds. Six pound 13oz maybe. My second was born in the late morning sometime and weighed a little over 8 lbs. I was concerned with other things like when they were eating and oxygen levels (for the one with health problems) that things like time and weight didn't strike me as important info.


Do you know all this info by heart?


Also, how easy is it for you to say your kid's birthdays? The first one is easy. She had a bunch of doctor's appointments and surgeries, and insurance stuff to deal with so I was saying her birthdate on a near daily basis. With the second, she was healthy, and I didn't need to say her birthday all the time. I struggle with it! The year really trips me up. I have to count backwards. I'm not good with numbers!

Do you ever struggle with this?

My first was born at 8:23am on November 12th and weighed 4.15lbs and was 18in long, my second was born at 8:47pm on July 25th weighing 7lbs even and 19.5in long (she was born with the cardinals game still on in my room--the cardinals were winning).

I know everyone's birthday. Approximate weight, length, and time. I somehow remember my oldest's exact time but the other two are fuzzy.

I know birthdays and weights without thinking. I know my oldest was born at 10 something (close to 11) middle dd was at 9 something (close to 10) and youngest was at 7:20 (she was my only morning baby & fastest labor, the only reason I remember)

Yes I know it by heart. He was 7 pounds 1 ounce, 20.75 inches, and was born at 8:41pm. I don't remember his head size though. My sons birthday is October 4th, 2012 but he was due October 25th, 2012.
