If you are concerned then can't you get in earlier to put your mind at ease? X

Probably just "normal" for you to have small babies then but I understand the worry. How big were you at birth? I was 7lb 7oz but OH was nearly 9lb and Ruby ended up being 8lb8oz so seemed about right x

Do you think babies weight is determined by parents weight at birth?
I was born 5lb and my brother 5 lb 5 so my mum had small babies and my OH was something like 8 lb 8 and his 3 siblings all above 8 lb.
My son was 7 lb 5. I was expecting at least 8 lb! X

Both of your bumps look lovely ladies

I forgot that my labour started at 6pm - I thought it started at 1am hahaha! So my 23 hour labour was actually a 29 hour labour! No wonder I was falling asleep towards the end!!!

Think it tends to be in middle of both parents weights generally from what I have heard. Also to do with frame size though, I am not the most petite girl in world, I'm 5'10 and OH similar height. If one of you was very short it may be lower I guess x

Oh kelly I want to read the rest of your birth story!!!

I was nearly 8lb at birth and craig was a big-ish size (his mum can't remember!) so they don't know why belle was small. Had checks on placenta and cord etc at end of pregnancy and nothing was wrong with them. They can't see me for any accurate assessment before the next app as it won't give enough time to monitor growth as it has to be done over a certain period of time. Just need to sit tight for now xx

Yeh, I'm 5'3 so I guess an 8 lb baby wouldn't be a bit big?

Maybe she was just generally a petite baby? Fingers crossed mw will still be happy with your growth xx

Your bumps look lovely!! MaryP yours has definitely grown since the last pic I saw. Kelly how funny that your bump shrunk?! Baby must have completely changed position.

I feel like my bump is massive!!! Can't imagine getting much bigger but Midwives keep recording it as bang on or just 1 week ahead ... But to be fair i've never been measured by the same midwife twice so not sure how accurate they can be as it's not exactly an accurate method anyway ...

Xxx

Your bump is definitely very big! But very lovely! Super envious. It is like a bump you would see in pregnancy photography! Xxx

Just catching up!

H excited for you for tomorrow what time is your scan? Is this a 4D one or a growing scan?

You all have lovely bumps! Think in going to take another soon . Summer I am obsessed with your bump it's perfect!

Awwww I hope it's right about baby's going on yours and OH's weight at birth, OH was 5lb 4 and I was 5lb 10. Both healthy just small, I'm also very petite and so is OH. I'm 5"3 and OH 5"7. At my 30 weeks scan she was 3lb or thereabouts so I doubt she's going to be as small as us haha I'm expecting at 8lb baby x x x

Have you weighed yourselves? I've now put on 1 stone! Can feel some of that is on my hips/bum/thighs as work trousers are a bit tighter when I sit down! Doh
