    Holy moly! I was miserable with carrying an 8.5lb baby. I can't imagine! Lol

    This was taken on 2/7. He was born 2/23.

    I walked around like that (and bigger!) For 2.5 more weeks after this!

    her dr didnt know he was that big. Unlike mine who did an ultrasound when I was measuring big to check on my ds' size hers did not. If he had he woulda known baby was about 10-11lbs and coulda offered a csec. he didnt even think of an emergency one he just let her go. She sued.

    Quoting EvilQueenMommy:

    That's why I had to have an emergency c-s, they said it was that or breaking his shoulder.

    Quoting Jenn8604:

    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.

    Yes.
    Its a common misperception that big baby= healthy baby. Actually a LOT of truly big (11 lb plus) babies have health problems.
    He was born at home and transferred to the hospital then life flighted to the nearest Childrens hospital with a NICU. He was the for 4 days. He had problems regulating his own blood sugar along with a few issues stemming from the trauma of his birth.
