anyone with more than 1 child
Ok, I have two children, my first, a little girl was born 3 days late and weighed 7lb 4.5oz, my second, a little boy was 4 days late and weighed 8lb 4.5oz. I was the same size when i conceived both, 5ft 4in and a size 14, so i was kind of expecting an 8-9lb-er first time around! We are planning on trying for another in the next couple of months and seriously hoping that the next doesn't jump 1lb in weight again! But my brothers partner has just found out they are expecting again, my neice was born 10 days late and weighed 8lb 5oz, with her mother being a tiny size 8 and 5ft ish tall, she bounced back into her size 8's within days but is worried that this one may jump up a pound in weight like mine did, so, sorry for the really long post, but just wondering what sort of weight gaps you had between your children? were the 2nd always heavier? Do you think yours or your partners weights had any bearing on the size of your baby? (I was 7lb 8oz when born, hubby was an unidentified (they didn't know it was twins!) identical twin and was a tiny 4lb, but he is now a 12st 6footer. Also, having never been induced I also wondered if you are induced 1st time around, whether you're likely to need an induction for any subsequent babies?
