Mine were both on the longer, thinner side.

DD1: 21.5", 6 lbs 14 oz., head 15"

DD2: 20", 7 lbs 13 oz., head 13.75"

I have always wanted a 9+ lb whopper with no hair. I want so many rolls you'd lose a bracelet on the kid. lol But I came across this pic on Pinterest, and teeny tiny babies are sooooo cute! I want a baby doll baby this time.

My first was 6-13 and my second was 7-2. I'm hoping Jane's not super big - I do plan on delivering vaginally, so, you know.

Mine were 7lbs 13oz and 8lbs and 20 inches. And they were both born in my 37th week. Can you imagine if I went to 40 weeks?

Our oldest came out 7 lbs 13 ounces
next was 7 lbs 12 ounces
then 8 lbs 1.5 ounces
and last was 8 lbs 5 ounces!

They tend to get a little bit bigger each time...

I bet this one will be even closer to 9 lbs! lol

Edited to add: They were all in the 20"-21" length

My teeny tiny was 6 lbs 3 oz and 18 3/4 inches. He came 5 days early and I had low amniotic fluid so he was on the smaller size. It was so cute though. But a scary reason.

Mountain mama was that meant to be 38 weeks?
#1 Boy, 38weeks 5 days 7lbs 15 oz, 20 inches
#2 Girl, 39 weeks 3 days, 6lbs 10oz, 20 inches
I don't know head size for either of them. My son never lost an ounce after birth, but my daughter was 6lbs 4 oz when we brought her home, I seriously felt like I'd break her.

Mine were all over the place

Tristen at 37.5 weeks was 6'2"
Logan at 38.5 weeks was 7'11"
Brady at 40 weeks was 7'0"

All were about 20 inches long.
I expect Sophia to be around 7lbs too.

Logan wasn't too chunky when he was born, but at around 4/5 months old we used to call him baby buddha because he had so many rolls, lol.

Old pic and not good quality, but this is Logan around 4 months old.

Jamie age 37-Single mommy and loving life
Tristen James born 10-28-00
Logan Boyce born 1-19-04
Brayden Monroe born 8/2/07
Sophia Elizabeth born 10-4-2103

I'm hoping for a 6 pound baby girl this time and going at 37 weeks 2 days.
^^ That would be my ideal birth right there. Seriously.

OH and while we're on the subject of weight, I'm SO SICK of doctors offices having those dang "Premature babies" posters about how horrible it is to have a preemie. Some women, like me, can't help it and it makes me feel super guilty for having the incisions I have....Stupid posters
