hi lads, i was adopted and never knew til last night what weight i was when i was born, seeing as im going to the gynae next week and need some medical history my mam fished out some doccuments, i was born 11 lbs, oh lads i nearly died, its my first baby and now im scared :eek , im not a large person by any means, my husband is 6'2 and is well built, can anyone say from their own experience if their own and partners weight/height was a factor in their babies size, obviously once the child is healthy etc i dont care but its the thoughts of the labour are frightening me!!!any feed back appreciated *)

I was asking the GP yesterday if labour time and weight was hereditary, she said it wasn't. Going my by 2 sisters, both had short labours on their first and 6-7lbers. My poor mother was in labour for over 20 hrs with the first and we were all over 9lb (6 of us) don't worry (the size of the head could be a problem though :o0 )

Hi ladies I don't think that it is related to your own birth weight as I was 8llb when I was born. My son was 11llb 12 when he was born!! He is 2 and half months now and wieghts a massive 20lb

The baby's weight isn't related to your own apparently, my GP said the same and when I googled it that's what I found out. Good news for all us whopping babies!
