    my first was 8lb3 and my second was 7lb11

    i think its an old wives tale personally, my friends just had her 4th and the last 3 were all lighter than her first :)

    2nd was 9lb (DS)
    I just hope this ones no bigger! both were born around there due date not sure if my second being a boy was the reason he was slightly bigger though xxx

    My 1st was 7lb 7, and second was 7lb 14 so half a lb heavier but 1st was 36, and 2nd was 37 weeks and they say half a pound a week at that stage so think would of been the same size.

    3rd and 4th both smaller than 1st and 2nd.

    my first was 8lb 12oz (DD) and they tell me this one shouldnt be any bigger than 7lb 8oz....im hoping hes not any bigger than my DD was because I could barely push her out!
