Bigger babies with IVF?

Postby lami » Sat Aug 07, 2010 6:43 am

Just wondering if anyone had a bigger baby with IVF? My little man is 3 pounds 4 oz at 29 weeks 3 days, and another girl in my Oct DD her baby is same age 4 pounds. My thought is that with IVF maybe since it is the best eggs and best sperm we have these super healthy babies growing?! So my question is for those who did IVF was your birth weight high, low or average and did you get to see how much they weighed before birth on U/S?
Thanks!

We did IVF and my little boy weighed 9lbs 3oz. and he was born at 38 wks.

Although I also had GD, so that may have played a role but I was controlling it with diet.

I think the last ultrasound I had was at 29 wks and they said he was about 5 lbs at that time.

I did a FET from an IVF cycle and eventhough I had twins, I did carry them to JUST under 39 weeks and Olivia was 5lbs14oz and Gavin was 6lbs8oz....so small for 39 weeks.

Thanks girls, I think it will be fun to see if there is any pattern that develops..so far no babies at 40 weeks..good news for me! :) I like the idea of delivering at 38 weeks the way I am starting to feel, and bless those who had twins!! I cant imagine two in there right now, although I wouldnt have minded two either :)

Hi,

I did IVF with my twins. DS was 6.6lbs (3kg) and DD was 5.4lbs (2.4kg).

It was DS who was ready to be born, I always got the impression DD would have liked to wait until 40+ weeks!! LOL! (I had an induction at 37w3d but had already dilated 2cm on my own).

I delivered my IVF twins at 38 weeks, and my little guy was 5 pds 8 oz and my baby girl was 6 pounds 1 oz. So I guess they were on the small side-though they were sharing meals in there :*)

At my final U/S at 37 weeks, the doc told me that both babies were over 7 pounds-go figure! I guess those things really can be off sometimes!
