YES you could have delivered 9 pound babies! I have delivered 2 niners and 3 ten+. It isn't their weight that would concern you, it is head size and shoulder width!!!!!

Just last night I spoke to a friend whose 16 yo daughter is pregnant. She would be due at the end of Aug. Somehow they have already decided the baby will be too big for her to deliver and are going to induce when she is 36 weeks!!!!!! I am so ticked off I wanted to scream at my friend. Instead I pointed hard on the counter and said "this will be a c section with complications, you heard it here first." 16 year olds have been known to deliver alone in a bathroom!!!!!!!!! How can they be doing this???????

I am always late. ALWAYS. My earliest was 7 days late. I have gone to 42 1/2 weeks without incident. I know not everyone is the same and all that, but why then are there so many inductions that end in c section and babies in nicu because their little lungs aren't ready?

I need to go dig in the garden.
