Today I recieved the iffy news it looks like I'm expecting my first daughter.

Is it true girls tend to weigh less than boys at birth?

My first son waz 6.3 lbs.
Second son was 7.2 lbs.

My son was 10 pounds, but that was mostly genetic. All of his father's family (mostly males) were around 10 pounds at birth and are thin adults. I was 5 pounds and am chubby as an adult.

He was also 2 and a half weeks past his estimated due date.

I only have one kid, so I don't know if a girl would be smaller, but probably....

My son was 7-11 @ birth @ 38w 6d ( he came a day before his induction date lol)
I'm currently 23ish weeks with my little girl but they say she's measuring kinda small so idk how big she's gonna be.

My son was bigger than my girls. Only a little and only in weight and it was probably because of gestational age at birth.

Aidan was 7 lbs 10 oz. 19.5 inches long. 42 weeks exactly.
Marti-Lynette was 6 lbs 12 oz. 20 inches long. 39 weeks 1 day.
Lynda was 7 lbs 2 oz. 20.5 inches long. 41 weeks.
Stubborn babies didn't want to come out. 1st 2 were inductions. Pray baby number 4 (due in November) isn't another induction.
