    i bumped into an old friend today, i heard she was pregnant but i had not seen her for a while anyway, she told me she had her lad 3 weeks early and he came out weighing 9lb 1oz!!!!!!!!!!!!! the midwife had apparently estimated the baby to be around 8lbs. thing is her bump wasnt evan huge, and it was her first.

    is anyone else scared about having a 'huge' baby?

    I'm not sure but the senior midwife felt the length of my baby this week and exclaimed "That's a good size! How tall are you?" but then we got interupted so I didn't ask any more- I might do if I get her again! I'm only 5ft and I'm a veggie so if it does mean I've got a large baby it'd be a bit of a surprise as I was rather expecting it to be on the smaller side!!! Oooer!

    yes!! :( i've just posted a thread about it!! I was 9lb when i was born and just found out DH was 10lbs!!! we were both early too. boo hoo that has shattered my illusions of having a nice little 6lb baby :D

    Suppose i shouldn't complain - my boss was 14lbs when she was born! her mother could barely walk. haha x

    14lbs omg!!! That's what ive been hearing too that im going to have a little baby as im not that big but quite a few people have said they had 7/8lb babys aswel as having small bumps.

    Ive put on alot of weight around my legs,bum and face and not so much my bump. according to my bump im 25 weeks preg (going by the baby growing a cm a week thing) has that actually worked for many people? because my last period and scan dates match up so i know im 28 weeks! confusing!

    Yep was really scared about it, but after my scan yesterday i have been told that even though my bump is huge, the baby's weight is 4lb at the mo, apprentley the growth is about 1/2 lb a week, so looking about 6lb - 7lb!!!

    They dont normally, but at my 31 week check with midwife she told me i was measuring at 36 cms!! so she sent me for a scan to check on dates and to see if the baby was really big!! but otherwise my last scan wouldve been at 20 wks, so good all is ok, but im glad i got to have another sneaky look at my baby!!

    My baby's not allowed to be more than 8 lbs or she wont fit into some of her cute outfits lol!! Seriously though, my OH was just under 14 lbs when he was born so it is a little worrying, especially considering I'm only 5'2"!!

    I heard of someone having a12lb baby ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    The hospital said its a week and 1/2 bigger than I should be, but my hubby and I are both tall so, just assuming it will be a long baby more than the wide and heavy, midwife seems quite impressed with my belly so quite happy
    My hubby was only 4lb when he was born and was born at 31 weeks and he picks up every infection going now! So I rather have a bigger baby 9lb will be ok!

    Just look at it this way, women have been having babies for thousands of years if they can do it with out drugs then I sure can (ok with some drugs maybe)
