When I had my kids, cause it was around how far you are, my first
34w1d she was 5lbs 2oz 18 in       my second,
35w      he was 5 lbs 12oz 19 in     my third
34w3d she was 6lbs        22 in.

So around 5 lbs sounds right!  =)

Some babies are just big......also they can be off by a pound or two....... They told me I was having an 8lb baby with my daughter and she was 6lbs!

Well at my 33 week appointment, my doctor did an ultrasound and kept looking around at the baby and said to me, "How far along did I say you were again?"  And I said 33 weeks.  He said "Are you sure?"  I said why, and he said, "Cause this baby is really, really, big."  He said he thought that the baby was about 7 or 7 1/2 lbs at 33 weeks.  So imagine how I feel.  I thought he would have changed my due date but he didn't.  My baby's father is a large man.  He's 6 ft 3 in and weighed almost 10 lbs when he was born.  All of his family is big though.  So my doctor is expecting my baby to be big too.
