    I was a little over 10lbs. How much were you?

    Did how big you were as a baby correlate to how big you are as an adult? My mum said the doctors told her I'd be over 6ft, but I'm only 5'8.5 now although I weigh around 12stones 10lbs.

    I have no idea, it would have been inappropriate the weight me on the kitchen scales. On an estimate I was apparently about 7lbs.

    But now I'm 6' 4'' and weight about 11 stone. I don't think there is any correlation in terms of later growth.

    I was about 9 lbs. I'm currently 5'4" and weighing 9 stone 13lbs. I'm normal BMI.

    My husband was about 8lbs. He's currently 5'10" and weighing 22 stone 6lbs. He's morbidly obese.

    My daughter was 10lbs 10oz and right now at the age of 8 years 10 months she's 4 '4" and weighing 6 stone. She's overweight by about 6lbs. She's on a diet! Unfortunately she's very sedentary.

    My eldest son was 10lbs 1oz and right now at the age of almost 7 years (he'll be 7 in a fortnight) he's 4'1" and weighing 4 stone 3lbs. He's near the top end of normal weight. He eats a lot but he's very active.

    My next son was just over 11lbs and right now at the age of 4 years 10 months he's 3'7" and weighing 2 stone 13lbs. He's near the bottom end of normal weight. He eats like a sparrow.

    My next son was 10lbs 8oz but I don't know what he currently weighs. He's 12 months old. I think he's normal though, he has been following the 75th percentile curve on the chart for a while now which is totally normal.

    I really really don't think there's much of a correlation at all, as DiddyDec says, between birth weight and weight in later years.

    5 pounds 3 ounces. I was 3 weeks early and really small when I was born. My mum always says baby doll clothes fitted me better than human baby clothes lol. I've grew up to 5 foot 3, so I'm still small-ish lol and weigh about 9 and a half stone.

    I was 10lbs 3oz. I had be born via caeserian section because I was apparently too wide to fit through mother's vagina. I'm 6'1" & 14 stone now.

    I think there is a correlation in height though.

    I was 9lbs. I don't know my exact height now but I'd not be too wrong if I were to guess my height at 6'1 give or take an inch.

    I was a few weeks overdue though

      6 pounds and 5 ounces.

      But I was six weeks premature,so I would probably have been huge if I'd gone full-term!!
