*POLL* 2nd babies- did they weigh more or less than 1st?

I'm just curious. I have a feeling that this baby will be a little smaller than Isabel for some reason but I really don't know. I'll see in 4 days. Who knows- she might be a lot bigger.

Was your 2nd baby bigger or smaller than the 1st and were they the same gender or not?

Jarrett weighed less than Jakob but it may have been due to the fact that he was induced at 36w were Jakob was 38 weeks. It was only a few ounces difference and since they are supposed to gain around a half a pound a week he might have been a lot bigger if we could have waited it out.

I voted my 2nd was SMALLER than my first.

My 1st girl was 8lbs, 13oz & *supposedly* 3 days early (born the 28th, due the 31st). My 2nd girl was 8lbs, 4oz & a lil more than a day late (born the 20th @ 3:22 a.m., due the 18th)--I was told she'd be bigger 'cause she's a 2nd baby & my OB was tryin' to talk me into an induction at 38w5d b/c of the *possibility* of Shoulder Dystocia!! UGH!!! We scheduled the induction for the 26th (8 days past due), but I had her on the 20th, so it worked out! ;o)

My first DS was born at exactly 39 weeks and was 6 pounds 11.6 oz
DS2 was born at 40w1d and weighed 7pounds 3.5 oz so not too much of a difference but I think being in there an extra week helped!

I was a second baby and smaller, but most second babies I think are usually bigger, according to my doc, although he says it's impossible to tell until they are born. You're lucky Isabel is a healthy, average size, I'm sure your next little girl will be just as healthy, I wouldn't worry about her being small. If she has more time to gestate too, and comes a little later, she might even be a bit heavier.

I expect my son to be heavier than M, he's already had more time to bake, lol, and I"m GLAD! Having a little one that dips into the negative percentiles for weight gain, despite eating like a horse, is stressful, so I hope this one is a chubby baby that won't give me stress! :rofl:

Thanks ladies. I'll have to see 4 days (well almost 3 now)

This baby will have baked about 5 days longer than Isabel so she may be bigger. I can't wait until Wed. I'm so happy to finally meet this baby.

And yes- I am so happy with Isabel's size. She started out kind of small but is up to the 50% now. Hopefully I'll have another good eater.

I can't really answer because my first was a month early and my 2nd was 5 days before edd. I will say though that both were boys and if my first was born on time he would have been around the same weight if not a bit less. He was 6.13 at 36w3d so he would have been at least 8 or more at edd. my 2nd son was 8.14. now my DD she was my longest pregnancy and my biggest at 9lbs. she was born on her edd.
