Anyone else had big babies?

My DS was 10lb 12oz, born at 40weeks by CS due to his size/position/epidural

My dd was 9lb 15oz born 40 weeks at home (vbac).

I'll be working diligently to control my diet so baby isn't any bigger than necessary. ;-)

Mine have ranged from 7lb 15oz - 10lb 1oz. I've always been induced at least a week early. I really want to go into labor on my own.....cause laboring natural with the pit is a mutha!!!! So this baby might be high on that range :-)

agreed! my 8lb 5 oz baby seemed sooo tiny to me, cant imagine how teeny 5 lbers must be!

also, if you think about it, the most painful part is the head, which is usually around the same size give or take...the rest of the body kind of slides out if they are left to do their thing and turn around to come out properly.

with my waterbirth ds rotated after his head was out and then just SLIP! i had my first with an ob and although it was all natural, the ob still yanked and pulled her out so i had never known this happens. pretty cool.
