Since I'm starting to run out of question ideas, I thought we could make "guesses" this week about the size of our babies.

A lot of mine depends on when she comes.

Let's see hmmm DH was a 9lb baby, DD was I believe 7lbs, 5oz, she came four days after due date. My prediction is, if baby comes early, let's sayd around full term time he will prob be 7lbs 5oz, if he comes in december, due date is dec 8th then he will prob be in the 8 pound range.

DS was 9lbs 3oz. DD was 7lb 10oz. I'm guessing this one will be around 7lb 10 as well.

My first was born exactly on his due date at 6 lbs 13 oz.

I'd expect this one to be full-term as well, perhaps a week early and likely around 7lbs 5 oz.

My guess is 6lb 8oz. I think i will go over my due date since this is my first, because my mom was the same with her first. My mother and I are tiny people so i think my baby will be on the smaller size. Plus, my siblings and I were all around 7lbs. I hope the baby doesn't grow to her father's size; he was 10lbs at birth!

Not sure! I can't judge off my own birthweight, because I was born at exactly 7 months so was only 4 lbs. Hubby was over 9 lbs and his cousins varied from over 9 lbs to nearly 11. :-/ So needless to say, with me being small, I'm a wee bit concerned about this. lol

I guess it depends on when he arrives, but I'm thinking 8lbs 4oz? We'll see :)

my 5yr old was exactly 6pounds bcos i had her early due to a terrible preeclampsia , who almost took my life and that of hers. my 3yr old i went over my due date a little bit and she was 9 pounds, now with the way my belly is going, i am guessing 8 to 9 pounds again, when i tell people i am due in dec, they don't believe me, only this week my belly has really pushed out and i look like i can have the baby day now....lol

Olivia was almost 4 weeks early and was 6.15. She was only 18.5". DH was small (also 6+ lbs) so I expect this baby to be small even if he's full term. My guess is 7.2 and 22".
