I too believe your body makes what it can handle. I'm 5'1 and although my baby was an average size baby, his head did not flex much when coming out. My midwife said his soft spot really wasn't there at birth and that his head did not flex really at all when coming out. So I had the full wrath of it during labor lol, intense pressure. But during labor at no point did I question his size. I don't think my labor was any indicator to how big he was. I've heard of women giving birth to 10lbers easier than I birthed my 7lber.
