Are baby boys bigger than baby girls???


Hi everyone,
So i have 2 little girls, my 1st was born at 36+6 and weighed 6lbs3oz, my 2nd was born at 39+2 and weighed 7lbs4oz. This time i am having a boy and people keep telling me he will be bigger than my girls, just wondered from peoples experiences if there was any truth in this as i didn't think the sex would matter with birth weight.
Thanks in advance for my silly question lol x

I'm not sure. I have read on other forums of 9 ib baby girls being born so it does happen.

My son was 8 ib 4 and a half and I was massive. I dont look or feel as big this time round and im expecting a girl.

Not neccesarily, my son was 5lb 3oz and my daughter 6lb 6oz. Am carrying a girl this time and est weight at full term is about 7lb 9oz so I really don't think you can say. Oh and also my friends boy was 6lbs and her daughter a whopping 9lb 15oz (same partner) she was a little overdue but that's a huge difference

xxxx

It isn't true, my brother was under 8lbs and I was 10lb2oz!! My DD was 9lb9oz and she was born a few days early lol. A friend of mine had a little girl who was 9lb6oz at 40+5 on boxing day. I'm expecting a boy which the consultant said will be another big one when they looked at the size of him last week lol.

Apparently, statistically, newborn boys are heavier than girls. Having said that, it IS a statistic only
