Is it really THAT shocking?
by BknotnobodyOctober 5, 2012 at 11:22 AMI thought 9lbs 9ozs was bad. Lol you go momma!
October 5, 2012 at 11:24 AMI didnt say any of that.
I needed lots of stitches, 2 blood transfusions and 7 mos later still have pelvic issues.
My son was lifeflighted to the regional childrens hospital where he spent several days in the nicu. Hes healthy NOW, but was not so at first.
People always hear "11 lb" and think "healthy baby". In fact, being too big is just as dangerous as being too small at times.
sounds like you had it all! a healthy vagina and a healthy baby!
October 5, 2012 at 11:26 AMPeople always act like I said "Oh, hes not really mine. I kidnapped him from the hospital" or something really outrageous. Lol
It IS surprising! Good job :))
October 5, 2012 at 11:29 AMI have had all of my kids naturall (he is #3), with midwives. So the drug free homebirth part was planned. He had problems regulating his own blood sugar ar first,but that was resolved after a few days.
Not common but my mil did it. Exact same as you.
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?

Nah, but good for you!
October 5, 2012 at 11:32 AMTrust me, my vagina hurts enough on its own. Lol
Labor was super fast. He wouldve just popped right out if it werent for his shoulders.
He had shoulder dystocia and got stuck bc he was so broad.
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

It's not shocking, but I would call it amazing. My son weighed 9 pounds 4 ounces and was 23 in half inches long and I gave birth to him natural with out a c- section, he was a little smaller than yours but still a big baby. I did get the epidural though lol. I would call you brave.
October 5, 2012 at 11:33 AMI used to think that was huge! Lol
I thought 9lbs 9ozs was bad. Lol you go momma!
