    First two were twins, so they were smallest.
    Ds2 was biggest of my four kids.
    Dd2 was 2nd biggest...even though I gained almost as much weight as I did w my twins!!! Thought for sure she'd be biggest.

    wow, quite a mixed bag. Interesting that it's common the second is bigger. This one is scheduled to be 10 days before DD1 was so I wonder if she'll be bigger or smaller.

    My second was much bigger.
    DS1 8lbs 3 oz. born at 38w6d
    DS2 9lbs 11 oz born at 38w4d

    Both were easy going babies that slept reasonably well.

    Smaller, and I was SHOCKED. I felt so much bigger! DD1 was 7lb 11oz, DD2 was 6lb 11oz.

    2 oz smaller but born 2 weeks sooner and with no IV during labor since it was so quick.

    @oliviaoblivia: How big is your third now? My third (and biggest) is now actually my smallest baby on the growth curve. Actually less than 50% for weight but 75% for height at 10 months.

  17. oliviaoblivia

    pineapple / 12793 posts

    @T.H.O.U.: she's still a house. 98% in height and 92% in weight. She's only a few ounces smaller than my average sized 2.5yo.

    DS1 was 5lb5oz and 17.5 inches at 38 weeks. DS2 was 5lb6oz and 19 inches at 38 weeks. I'm now 38 weeks with another boy and he is currently measuring 6lb11oz.....and I've gained a little less this time as well.

    DD1: born at 39+5 she was 8 lbs 10 oz.
    DD2: born at 39 weeks - she was 7 lbs 6 oz.

    so there was over a pound difference between them! I gained 20 pounds more with number one than I did number 2 so I think my eating contributed to the difference!

    Both born at 40 +3. Lo1 was 9lb lo2 was 7lb 5oz. The first thing I said was "he's so small!"

    Mine were almost 19 months apart and I just don't think I had the resources the second time around.

    Mine all got smaller!
    DS1 - 10 lbs 9 oz
    DS2 - 7 lbs 2 oz
    DD - 5 lbs 5 oz

    My 3rd was half the size of my 1st! I had GD with my 2nd.

    Bigger, but not by much. Could be explained by sex as well.

    1st- girl, 41w, 7lbs 4oz
    2nd- boy, 40+5, 7lbs 9oz.

    #2: DS: 38w0d: 9 lb 1 oz

    DD was 8lbs 3oz, born at 38+6
    DS was 9lbs 3oz, born at 39 exactly.

    I had GD with my son, which may be why he was so much bigger- I gained 16 pounds with my daughter and actually ended up losing 2 pounds with my son.

    First: 7 lbs 6 oz, born at 39w 3d (can't remember days completely anymore)
    Second: 7 lbs even, born at 39 weeks on the dot

    My first was 6 lbs, 2 oz, born at 41+1.

    My second was 9 lbs, 4 oz, born at 40+6.😳

    #1- DD was 7 lbs 1 oz at 40w
    #2- DS was 7 lbs 8 oz at 41w

    I imagine if he was on time he would have been the same size as his sister.

    @Woolly Mammoth: whoa! That's quite the difference for similar gestations!

    Baby 2 was bigger and shorter! Dd1 was 8.12 and 21 in, dd2 was 9.6 and 20 in. I gained about 15 lbs less with my second... Totally puzzling.

    My second was almost two pounds larger than her sister! Both were born full term and I gained approximately the same amount of weight with both pregnancies.

    This thread has been really interesting. Especially the differences in weight gain. I'm starting this current pregnancy about 5 lbs heavier than my last so I'm interested (scared) to see where I end up

    @Banana330: 2 oz apart! 8lbs 2oz boy at 40w0, 8lbs 0oz girl at 40w6d, I voted for pretty much the same.

  37. Woolly Mammoth

    kiwi / 524 posts

    @delight: I know! I would have been shocked except that I was so much more uncomfortable the second time despite gaining a little less.
