My daughter was estimated to be over 8 lbs, but when she was born she was 6lbs 15oz. The doctor can't guarantee what your baby will weigh.

Weight estimates before birth can be pretty drastically off. There's no way to tell exactly how big a baby will be, it's really just a guess.
That being said, my first child was 7lb 12oz, my second was 8lb 14oz and my newborn was an even 10lbs.
My last two labors were quicker than my first, and my last one was actually the easiest of the bunch :) It really depends on a lot of different things and you won't know til you're there :)
