Re: What is a 'normal' birth weight?
My midwife did the belly feel when I was in labor. She told me that I had a small baby in there, probably under 7 lbs. She weighed 7'6, but she was really short (18 1/2 inches).
Now at 2 months she's 13 lbs and 23 inches! 90% for weight and 75% for length.
My son was only 7 lbs and he was the same way. HUGE growth spurt in the first few months.
So not only is your baby's size normal, birth size is in no way an indicator of the size of the baby later in life, even a few weeks later. Most OB's think that most babies grow to a good "birth size'' for mom's pelvis.
