A little on the small side but nothing to be worried about.  Some people just have smaller babies.


DD1 was born at 38w3d and was 7lbs 5.4oz and 19 inches.

DD2 was born 39w4d and was 6lbs 14oz and 18 inches.

That is small. That is exactly how big I was and I was induced three weeks early due to insufficient maternal weight gain. Normal at full term is about 7-9lbs.

I had 2 39 weeks. One was 6 pounds 8 ounces and 18 inches long and the other was 5 pounds 12 ounces 19 inches long. 


I would say say yours is small.. Voice your concern with the doctor.

2 of my boys were 5lbs and 14 oz at 40 weeks and the dates on their estimated birth were exact because I always kept track of my periods.

Mine was 5 lbs. 11 oz. 18 inches. Only a little bit bigger. She's average weight now, and only a little bit below average height. I think she was small at birth because of the stress I was under during my pregnancy, but if they're over 4 pounds, there's nothing to be concerned about.
