    Default Shoe Size And Baby Weight

    This is just a bit of fun and I'm testing my ob's theory that women usually have babies up to/around one pound heavier than their shoe size.



    For instance, if you're a size 7 shoe, you'd expect a baby between 7-8lbs.

    Was that true for you?

    I am shoe size 8.5 and my DD was 8lb 13oz. So in this case, the theory is right here!

    I'm size 8 1/2 - my bubs were 7pd8 and 6pd8 (although he was early!). So it doesn't quite fit for me.

    But I think your ob is probably on the right track, that woman generally make bubs that are "right" for their size. This is why it's a bit ridiculous that women are constantly being told their bubs are "too big" for them to birth.

    I'm around an 8/9 shoe size and my DS was 7lb15oz.
    He was a week early.

    I've never heard of this theory before. It's interesting.
