What size baby do you think you will have?

Besides being extra long my LO's have all been on the smaller side weight wise. I still think this baby will be in the 6lb range even with the GD since high BP restricts growth some.

I'm going to guess around 8 or 8 1/2 pounds (just averaging between my two children). If I could have it my way, I would want a 7 pound baby at 38 weeks though.

Meve appears to be long, but skinny.
I'm thinking she'll be 6/7lb range (steve and I were both wee ones... Well long wee ones lol )

Hmmm... no idea. She was smack dab at the 50th percentile at our 20 week scan. And DH and I were both a little under 8 pounds. So I'm gonna guess between 7 and 8 pounds. I guess we'll have to see how close I am!

I'm getting my growth scan in a week and a half so that will tell something. I'm guessing about 7lbs. I expect 7 to just over 8 based on other babies but I haven't gained much so I'm thinking smaller end but you just never know. And dh is tall but has short legs and I'm short so they go between 19-21 inches. Phoenix had the shortest legs and was 19...she was so funny looking but adorable! Short legs, HUGE head, crazy brown hair sticking straight out like a troll doll and she looked like she had a full set of teeth because her gums were swollen the shape of teeth lol Oh and huge mouth. I swear she really was cute despite the description haha

Since I'm being monitored for high blood pressure and IUGR, I would say small. His legs and belly are measuring in only the 3rd percentile. I'm hoping he'll be about 5.5 to 6.5 pounds, but I could be wrong and he may end up smaller. Our friends just had an IUGR baby that was born weighing just over 4 lbs. at 38 weeks.

DH was almost 10lbs and I was 7lbs 13oz, and my OB said babies follow their mother's weight more often than their father's, so I'm thinking about 8lbs.

I was almost 10 pounds when I was born, so I'm expecting a 9 pounder or something in that range, unfortunately. haha

Dd was only 5lbs 3.4oz at 37w but at the last growth scan baby b was already showing 5lbs 5oz at 32weeks so I'm going to say he will be at least 7-8 if I make it to 38 weeks and she will probably only be 6-7.

Dh was 7 lbs and I was just under 6 lbs, so I am anticipating a small baby. She also measured slightly behind until her 20 week ultrasound in which she was exactly right for her due date.

Based on the size of my other two boys (9 lbs. 13 oz. and 9 lbs. 2 oz.), I would guess large.

These are my first but I'm hoping for 2 5 pounders! I've talked to twin moms who had 7 pounders and I can't imagine how that would feel to carry 14 pounds of baby!

DH and I were both in the 7 lb range, so I'm hoping Sophia will be the same.

Landon was 7 lbs 1.8 oz, DH was in the 5 lb range and I was 7 lb 1 oz. I'm going to guess this baby will be in the 7 lb range as well.

My first was 8.2, next was 6.13 and last was 6.7. I am thinking small for this one as well But my last two were 2 weeks early so that explains the size differences between my first and 2nd/3rd. Hoping for a little early and smallish!

my lady parts cry when i think about this. i was 8.3 and my husband was 10.

so i'm looking at a 9 pounder or so. But i think his mom had GD that she didn't take care of that is the cause of him being so big.

I'm thinking medium to large. Hopefully I will get a better idea of how big she already is after my US on the 24th.
