So D is in size 2 diapers now and she just had a major growth spurt! I dont have her "official" weight till her next 4 month chk up BUT she is getting hard to carry. I have back issues and I suddenly feel her being harder to carry like while we are out shopping when she gets fussy.
Ryan's first 3 months were a crazy growth spurt - he went from 6lbs 5oz at birth to like 18lbs it was insane. Now at 4 1/2 months he's finally slowed down, my back and his doctors are happy - he weighed 19lbs 2oz at his 4 month checkup
Marcos has not been weighed since 7 weeks (was 12.5lbs) but I'm pretty sure he's about 16-17lbs right now cause we started the size 3 diapers this week. I think his growth has been fairly stable for about 2 months, because that's when his size 3-6 month clothes started to fit him and it seems he's been growing out of them at a normal pace (although for pyjamas he's now growing out of size 6 months - I guess they make the pj's smaller?)
I am also having back issues which started 3 days ago. I was carrying him and suddenly felt something was just not right and since then it's been like lightning bolts in my lower back and hips if my back moves at a certain angle. I booked a DR's appointment for Tuesday to have it checked out. I had gained 35lbs in total by the end of my pregnancy, was pregnancy lasted for 42 weeks, Marcos was born at almost 9lbs AND since birth wanted to be carried 24/7, so my back has not had a break at all. I guess it was inevitable.
Definitely. I was told that Adelyn weighs 14lbs right now and she's off the average mark for her height. She's a really tall baby. She's in size two diapers but for clothing she's in her 6 month stuff. Growing like a little weed!
