They say that if you are heavy, you're more likely to have a heavy baby. Whoever "they" are.
I do know that my mother actually had her smallest baby when she was at her heaviest...
Still waiting to find out how big my little guy is...
i agree with Leslie - i don't think weight is a factor - honestly, i think it has more to do with you and SO genetics. my son was 8lbs 3 1/2 oz born on his due date. my daughter was 8lbs 14.5oz taken c-section 1 1/2 weeks after due date. sounds like a bigger baby, but when you look at my family history - my brother was in the 9lb range and i was in the high 7 range (dh doesn't really apply cuz he was born at 30 weeks and only weighed 3lbs.) ok - i am probably not making any sense....sorry, bored and rambling
This little girl was 1lb 9oz at my 24 wk u/s. and at my 19w u/s she was 9 oz. My mom is skinny and I was 7 10oz and my sis was 8 2oz. My first daughter was 8lb 6oz.. I don't think weight has a factor on the baby's size.
