    Ooo good one Bloom.

    My baby has been put forward at each scan although I know when I ov'd so know when he/she was concieved so i'm guessing it's growing fast and will be big.

    9Ibs 2 is my guess..... eeek!

    Hello
    im quite a petite girl, ive gone from size 6-8 to 10-12 and bump has just surged in last few weeks, im guessing a big baby as my hubby is a really tall man and my body seems desperately trying to accomodate so thinking 91bs or so. eeeeh!

    I'm going to go with 9lb 10oz... I would like baby to be around 7lb max but having had a big baby last time and knowing they normally get heavier... 9lb 10oz

    7lb 13oz for me for several reasons:

    * Hubby and his dad were over 10lbs (!) but Connie will be nowhere near that big as she's measured "bang on average" at each scan.
    * I was 7lb 13oz.
    * 1s and 3s follow me everywhere so it's bound to be 13. I wouldn't be surprised if she arrives on 13th April either as I dreamt it in Week 5!!!

    Good thread Bloom - we can have a good laugh in 15 weeks' time or so :oops:

    Hmm, both myself and my hubby were average weight babies. However, I am a larger lady so I am either going for quite large, 8lbs 11oz or very wee 5lbs 4oz.

    When i had DS he was 6lb 9oz so I'm gonna guess at 6lb 3oz with this one as I'm no where near as big as I was with DS.

    Im thinking if it's a boy it's gonna be HUGE OH was over 10lb and my brother was huge too so big boys run in familys i'd guess about 9.7lb
    and if its a girl im thinking she'll be a little smaller as i was tiny but not too small so about 7.5lb
    Cant really guess though, it's too early on to tell whether they're big or not so i'm going on gut instinct lol

    I was thinking this too :think:

    Do you think your babies weight has anything to do with how much you and your oh weighed at birth?

    I was a twin born at 37 weeks ish so it doesnt count and oh was born at 30 weeks so that doesnt count either so i have no idea what our baby should weigh. :think:
