Baby size....have you had a shocker sized baby??

Posted by   + Show Post

My Hubby keeps picking on me saying this baby is gonna be a 9 or 10 lber. I keep telling him he better shut it LOL. I know I could easily birth a big baby, but that doesn't mean I want to LOL. My kids have been around the 7 lb range. 1st was 7 lbs 6 oz, 2nd was 6 lbs 5 oz, and 3rd was 7 lbs 9 oz. Do you think having a 9 or 10 lber is really even likely considering previous baby sizes? Has anyone had a odd baby out, a baby wthatjust went over and beyond previous baby sizes and surprised the heck out of you??

I figure later on in the pregnancy I will have a better idea of baby size. Right now I feel much smaller then I did with my second or third pregnancies. So I don't feel like baby is particularly big. With my daughter at the end I had lots of pains around the top of my belly because I got so big with her. And she was my biggest baby which I believe was the cause. So I figure I will be more sore like I was with her if this is a big one. So anyway who has had a surpriser on D-day?

Here are my babies :)

Laylah was my first unplanned homebirth baby!

I've been told from the second ultrasound that this baby measures big. She's long and weighs more than she should for her gestation age. The last time they measured my belly I measured 34cm at 22 weeks. I'm worried she's going to be huge.
