For previous moms: how big were the babies and did you go vaginally or csection?

For all moms: any predictions on your babies weight?

My first son was 8.11 one day early via csection.
My second was 7.11 14 days early via csection (he came early because an ultrsound predicted a 10lb baby!)

This time I am saying at least 8 lbs but not more than 9lbs. I was worried the first time because my sister had two 10lb babies naturally and I got to witness that. She was my hero- she had no pain medication!

I haven't the slightest guess. I'm gonna go with not too big since i'm not too big myself, but I can't get anymore specific than that.

And I really don't trust those ultrasound weights even slightly, everyone i know who had to be induced or get an early c-section because of the weight the ultrasound said ended up having babies at least 2 pounds lower than it said.

Ben was 8lbs 1oz...born about two weeks early

Ryan was 9lbs 2oz...born via c-section two weeks late....

I'm sure baby girl is going to be at least 8lbs....I'm just hoping not much more than 8....

Eric was 7lb 12oz, 3 days after his due date, vaginally.

Danny was 5lb 6oz, almost a month early, c-section. (And he'd stopped growing a few weeks earlier...)

My predictions for this little one is that he be here about a week early, and he'll be around 8 pounds, give or take half a pound.

DD was 6.14 born 9 days early vaginally.

If I go to term, I'm guess this baby will be about a pound more than DD because he's measuring a bit big anyway.

If he comes early, who knows. I hope he stays put.

1st was 5 lbs 13 oz - born at 35 weeks vaginally

2nd was 6 lbs 5.5 oz - born at 39 weeks vaginally

3rd was 5 lbs 14 oz - born at 37 weeks 6 days vaginally

This one is coming early, around 36 weeks so I predict a 5 lber.

DS was 9lbs 10.6oz and delivered vaginally (ouch) he was born at 36.5 weeks
DD was 6lbs 8oz vaginally and delivered at 36 weeks

With DS I had been given steroids for his lungs when they weren't sure if they could stop my labor, and that could be what contributed to the massive weight so early

DS #1 7lbs 4oz 39wks
DD 7lbs 10oz 38.5 wks
DS #2 6lbs 13oz 36wks (he would have been big! at term)

This one will be atleast 8lbs if I don't stop eating magic cookie bars , even if I deliver at 37wks as planned.

I can never remember my boys weights, lol! I think DS1 was 7lbs 9 oz and DS2 was 7 lbs 12 oz. I'm predicting around the same weight for this one.

Both were born via c-section due to head size/ not progressing during induction with DS1.

DS1- 8 lbs, 1 oz (41w1d)
DD1- 8 lbs even (39w5d)
DS2- 8 lbs, 6 oz (40w5d)
DS3- 7 lbs, 12 oz (39w2d)
DD2- 8 lbs, 1 oz (39w6d)

All were born vaginally.

With these babies, it really depend on when I have them. But if I go to the date I'm hoping to go to, I'm guessing they'll be around 6.5 lbs each. It's hard for me to really make any kind of accurate guess since I've never done this twin thing before.
