My friend was tinier than that and gave birth to a HUGE baby. You should be fine. Don't psych yourself out until the time comes I am 5'4 and was 105-110 before all of my pregnancies and gave birth naturally to all of them (but they all came early, though they were in "full term health") I think our tiny bodies compensate

For those who don't want to be induced (I don't blame you) just be prepared to FIGHT the hospital not to give you pitocin. they like to give it to pretty much EVERY pregnant woman who comes in, almost as a matter of course, even when it's not needed. This has been my experience and from what I've heard on other DDCs in the past it's not uncommon.

You bring up a good point there Tasha. With my son I had every person I knew known to man in and out of my room. This time around even though I know it wouldn't make my mother happy I think that I would like to just have DH present during the birth of our child. There is something so much more intimate and special about the idea. As you stated though who knows how any of us will feel once the actual moment is before us.
