Thanks! I'll have to find that book. Size does concern me a small degree. My first two were only 6 lbs. 4 oz. and 7lbs. 11 oz. my ex and I were both small too though. (Both around 6 lbs. 8 oz.) DH was a BIG baby. Nearly 11 pounds. His brother was big too. However, I was once told that I had a obstetricians dream pelvis. Wasn't sure at the time if that was an insult or a compliment, but I was only 17 too. lol The doctor who delivered my son also assured me I would likely NEVER have a problem with natural childbirth, so I'm not too concerned. Just trying to make sure I have all my little duckies in a row in case of an emergency. There is a hospital just a few blocks away, but they don't normally do deliveries...not sure I'd be much better off there than at home. lol The nearest L&D is about an hours drive away which does make me a bit nervous, but I trust my body and really believe a L&D unit isn't going to be necessary.
Now if I can just get pregnant again!
for my new siggy!
