    if u have a baby up to 6lb its classed as very small, if u have a baby between 6lbs 9 and 8lbs 12 its classed as average and anything over 8lb 13 is classed as large,
    so everyone lets here what size babys you have already had, my 1st was a 8lbs 1 ie classed as average size my 2nd was 2 weeks early and 9lbs 2 so classed as large esp for 2 weeks early hate to think if had on time.

    this is what i have just read
    Fetal macrosomia has been defined in several different ways, including birth weight of 8 lb 13 oz to 9 lb 15 oz (4000-4500 g) or, greater than 90% for gestational age. High birth weight (HBW), babies weighing over about 9 pounds (4,080g) fall into the 90th percentile for weight and are known as large for gestational age (LGA) babies.

    About 10 percent of all babies weigh more than 8 pounds, 13 ounces (4 kg). With about 1.5% of babies their birth weight was equal to, or was greater than 9 lb 15 oz (4500 g). Rarely do babies weigh over 10 pounds (4.6kg). Although most LGA babies are born at term (37-41 weeks of pregnancy), a few premature babies may be LGA.

    DS was 6pounds 8oz - so just about average I guess - I think this baby will be about 7 pounds something as last time I had gd so was really watching mt diet when I was borderline gd - so think I was being over-cautious. So this time I will relax more and expect this bubbs to be a bit heavier. Also love chubby faces and hands so would love a bit of a chubbier baby xx

    Haven't had my baby yet, but I was born 4 weeks early, but was still 6 pounds 7 ounces,
    so I wonder if my baby will be average if I carry to term, or will be small.

    Amelie was a small baby. She was 6lb4oz at birth and looked teeny tiny. A lot of people said she was the smallest baby they'd seen and that she looked like a doll :cloud9: She's still a small baby so think she's just petite :)
