Get the book Active Birth by Janet Balaskas...she takes care of the big baby problem in my eyes by positioning. Laying flat on your back like in the hospital is so dumb (unless thats what your body is telling you) and really makes big babies a problem, but moving around and being upright during labor and birth really reduces the risks.

That said, we had a planned UC with dd. We did have some prenatal care off and on (OB through 13 weeks, MW from 28-39 weeks). We did have an u/s with her. This time though, we are not having any prenatal care (aside from monitoring myself). We won't be having an u/s either. But I did just buy a doppler today.
