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

This is a completely blind guess - 7 lb 7 oz. I have it in my head that he'll be a few days late. I was full term and was in the low 7's. My DH is adopted and his mom doesn't know his exact birth weight.

I think baby will be about 7 1/4 lbs to 8 lbs at 39 wks when I have my csection.

I'm thinking high 6s or low 7s if it's a girl, and mid 7s or so if it's a boy.

For some reason I always have had a feeling she was going to come at 37 weeks and be in the 7lb range. My Dr however though said with the size of the other 3, that I should not hold my breath with that one. Makenzie was 9 days late and 8lbs 4oz, Justin was on his due date and 8lbs 4oz and Nathan was 11 days early and 8lbs 14oz. I'm still hoping she is going to be smaller, like in the 7lb range. That would be nice. :)

Ooh, good question!
DD was 7 lbs 14 oz (meds to stop labor for 6 weeks)
DS was 7 lbs 3 oz (meds to stop labor for 12 weeks)

#3 I'm going to guess 7 lbs 1 oz if I can make to 38 weeks.

I'm guessing 9lbs 15oz if he's on time and if I go late he'll probalby be over 10lbs....DS was 9lbs 10 oz. Apparently we make big babies =)

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".

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

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