I had natural birth in the hospital with my son. I just found his old information card in the car and thought it might be fun to post his information from when he was born. He was a good sized baby (especially coming out of barely 5 foot me! )

born 2004
weight 8 lbs. 10 oz.
length 20.25 inches
head 14.75 inches
chest 13.75 inches

My mom swears the first is always the smallest. She bets the one I'm having in September will be 8 lbs. 12 or so. I was her first and I was only 6 lbs. 7 oz. Then again, I'm almost positive she smoked through all of her pregnancies.

Awesome job!

My first was 21 inches and 7lbs 14 ozs

My second was 21 inches and 7lbs 14 ozs

My third was 16 inches and 5'12

My fourth was 15 inches and 5'9

All were girls, and the last were a set of twins, so I wonder what this, a boy, will be like in relation to the gals.'

Usually babies do get bigger, but not always. My mom's, in order of birth, were 8-13, 8-3, and 7-12. Mine second was smaller than my first. I actually know a lot of people who had a smaller subsequent baby so you never know.

Weight: 6 pounds 10.8 ounces (she could have been bloated from the 3 liters of fluid they pumped into me over the 6 hours before she was born)
Length: 19 1/2"
Head Circumference: 14 3/4"

Weight: 6 pounds 6 ounces (after his first nursing session)
Length: 20 1/2"
Head Circumference: 14 1/2"

I have lightweight babies with big head lol
