Does sleeping a lot mean you will have a bigger baby?

I sleep maybe 12 hours a night. I have always needed a lot of sleep like this even before I was pregnant. My mom said if I keep sleeping like that I'm going to have a 10 pound baby. I was just wondering if sleep has anything to do with your baby's size?

    I don't know about that, I've always had a difficult time sleeping usually only getting a few hours in a night. And my first was born at 8 lbs, the docs estimated that he was going to be 9 lbs and I guess very well could have been but I gave birth 15 days before my expected due date. I don't think sleep really has much to do with the size of your baby.

    no i slept a lot when i was pregnant with my first. I could sleep 8 hours or more a night be up a hour or less and go back to sleep and sleep another 5 or 6 hours. I was this way when I first got pregnant and at the end of each trimester. My baby was 6lbs 4oz. Now I all ways know when my little girl is going threw a groth spert because she gets to where all she wants to do for about a week is eat and sleep 24/7. she is not a big child at all she is only about 40lbs now.

    Not true at all. Building a baby is just tough on the body and it requires you to rest a bit more. Not exercising at all and eating McDonald's every day might make a 10 pound baby, but sleeping isn't going to be the culprit.

    that has nothing to do with the size of your baby. It just means your tired and your body needs rest.
