I just wanted to say 'hi'. I've been reading a lot of the articles posted up in the sticky & am becoming more & more sure that I want a natural birth for this baby. I had a cascade of interventions with my DS & it made for a miserable birthing experience for everyone involved. I will say that my Dr never pushed a c-section even when a lot Drs would have for failure to progress.

Oh & I think the link Cheryl is looking for about big babies is for me. We're in the same DDC & I posted about this over there. Ethan was 9lbs 13ozs for no apparent reason (no GD). I'm 5' 7" & was about 145lbs when I got pregnant with him; DH isn't a really big man either so everyone was a bit surprised at the baby's size. I'm going to prepare for a big baby this time & am research birthing positions. That way if this baby is average sized, it will be a pleasant surprise!

Welcome to the board! I have a friend that is barely 100lbs dripping wet, and about 5 feet tall. All 4 of her babies have been right around 10lbs... its crazy! I firmly believe that our bodies don't create babies too big for us though....

Welcome! Don't stress a "big" baby... I'm not even 5ft tall and after being told there was no way someone with my frame could give birth to a baby bigger than 9lbs vaginally went on to have a 10 1/2 lb baby 100% naturally, with no problems at all. Piece of cake lol!

Welcome!

I had a big baby, my first VBAC was 9 lb 14 oz. The next two were both under 9 lbs, onebeing 8 lb 15 oz and one being 8 lb 4 oz. Every baby is different and they do NOT getting bigger with each baby. My mom had 7 babies, the biggest was her 4th, he was 10 lb 9 oz! He was a vaginal delivery too, and posterior to boot!

Welcome! I'm Mari and have 7, soon to be 8 kiddos. I have had 7 natural child births and I agree about big babies. Number 6 was my biggest at 9.2oz. That was big enough for me. I actually had the worst delivery/recovery with number 3 and he was my smallest. You just never know!

Welcome! I am so excited to have you here! There is always hope your second will be smaller than the first. My first was 9 lbs 10 oz and we are just like you at not being big ourselves so we were totally surprised. Then our second was only 7 lbs 15 oz. Of course, he came at 38 weeks so that could have something to do with it too.

Anyway, I'm so glad you're stopped lurking and I look forward to getting to know you better!
