    if you have previously had one.

    What was their birth weight.

    My first was 9Ibs 8oz (gas and air, then emergency spinal block with rotational forcep delivery)

    My second was 11Ibs 2oz (gas and air only)

    Wow...they are big babies!

    My first was 6lb 140z, Pethidine (which I will never have again!) and Gas and Air.

    Think bubs number 2 will be slightly bigger this time.

    no, I wasnt diabetic.

    I queried it as well but as my first was 9Ibs 8oz and not 9Ibs 10oz (the weight that they do the get. diabetes test from).

    They did always check my urine though and it showed no indication.

    TBH though the 11Ib 2oz birth was easier and faster than my first one.

    my first was 6lb 7oz stopped growing at 36 weeks so emergency c-section due to placental abruption. I wonder how much he would have weighed if he had gone over due as he put on 8oz in the first 3 days!! within 6 weeks he went from the 6th percent to 95 percent

    my biggest fear with this pregnancy is that the baby is going to be even bigger, I had a growth scan the day before my youngest was born and they said the baby was going to be about 9Ibs .... .

    Hi

    Mine were:
    7lb 2oz (2 weeks earlier, pre eclampsia so induced and no relief at all)
    7lb 13oz (no pain relief, born at home full term)

    Good luck Auzelia, not sure how I would cope with anything over 8lb!!!

    My firstborn was 6 lbs 1.5 oz born 2 weeks early induced due to pre-eclampsia, had an epidural to bring my blood pressure down but wasn't doing enough for the pain so had a spinal block and a normal delivery no stitches or anything

    My 2nd was 10lbs 1.0oz born 4 days overdue but came by himself. Gas and air only and again no stitches or anything.

    I am also worried about this one being bigger Auzelia!! They told me my 2nd was going to be about 8lbs and he was 10!! So I don't think they really get an accurate idea from scans or fundal height measurements. Fingers crossed both our babies are no bigger than their siblings!!! xxxx

    Edited to add: I did have sugar in my urine but glucose tolerance test came back negative for GD. They are going to test me for this again this time around at 28 weeks. xxxx
