I read on another forum that having IV fluids in labor can inflate your baby's birth weight. I thought this was interesting because my son was big 9 lbz 9 oz, but then lost a lot of weight and had a hard time regaining for various reasons. I was on IV fluids with him for my entire labor. My daughter was big, but not as big 8 lbs 13 oz, and I was only on an IV for a short time. Please answer the poll...just curious to see if there's a pattern.
