The baby weighs 1 lb 6 ozs - which is the 76% range for weight at this age. 50% being average. So, we've got a tubby baby.

Five weeks ago, the baby weighed 9 ounces, so he has gained 11 ounces in five weeks. The Doctor doesn't seem concerned - baby is healthy and everything looks fine.

Did you have larger babies since you are overweight? Or is it just random whether your baby is large or not?

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...

your baby doesn't sound that much over the growth charts.....i think everything will be great! I'm worried about the possibility of a large baby..but mostly I just want a healthy baby!!

Caitlynn was only 6lbs 8ozs when she was born at 39 weeks. I don't really think the mother's weight has anything to do with the baby's birth weight unless there are other factors involved, such as GD.

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.
