Probably shocking because of the uncommon weight of the baby. Did he/she have diabetes? Also uncommon having the ability to do it naturally and with enough strength to not have an epi. Was it all of a sudden or what?
I also needed two blood transfusions.
I never said it was easy. Just that I did it.
IDK! I guess. Most drs want u to have a csection if ir baby is that big tho. To prevent tearing all the way back to. But if u and baby are fine good. I know one girl who had an 11lb baby and pushing him out broke his shoulder and tore mom so bad she needed two blood transfusions.
My vagina hurts for you..lol.. They say the bigger ones come out easier because they cant wiggle around and get stuck in odd positions.. Took me 2 hours to push out my 8 pound 6 oz baby, and only 2 pushes to push out my 9 pound 11 oz baby..lol
He was a homebirth, but we had to transfer right after.
I needed blood transfusion and stitches :-/
His birth was very difficult due to shoulder dystocia.
He ended up in the nicu for several days.
I get the same reaction when i tell people i have had 2 over 9lb babies drug free, 1 at home. I honestly don't think baby size has much to do with how hard labor/birth is. My 9lb 11oz baby was actually easier to push out than my 7lb11oz one. And my youngest one (9.1) that was born at home, i didn't even have to consciously push, i just let my body do it's thing and only thought about it and tried to do it slowly while he was crowning so i wouldn't tear, which i didn't with any of my kids.
