Random Question* a 'late' Baby

K my friend katy just had her baby the day before yesterday... Anyhow, her due date was supposibly june.26th so the baby was 2 weeks and 4 days late. She still didnt go on her own! They finally induced her. Anyhow maybe not, but I was thinking they probably got her due date wrong, because the baby was a boy and he only weighed 7lbs 12oz which is good except I would think he would be bigger for bein in there 2 1/2 weeks extra.. Or is it more common then I think to go over that much on a first pregnancy and still have a regular sized baby? I just didnt think people went over the 2 week mark too much. They couldve gotten her due date wrong because she had a mid-wife so they only did one ultrasound and did things much different. She does have a history of drugs and had an abortion last yr Shocked (but she seems to really love this baby dont get me wrong) anyhow, just curious, doesnt really matter*

Hey
Hmmm, I really don't know. I would think the baby would have been bigger though. But, yes if her due date was a lil off.... Hmm I dunno.

I would say her due date was off! But it could be other things too I guess, who knows! When I was born I was 3 weeks late and only weighed 6 lbs, 13 oz...So I think its safe to say my moms due date was off! I guess all that really matters in the end is a healthy baby!

Well her due date could have been off but then again maybe not. I read somewhere that on average that later the baby is the less is will likely weigh.
