I know this is a question I should ask my dr. but, I won't see him again for about 2 more weeks so....I will ask you in the meantime:
DS1 was born 8lbs even. DS2 was 9lbs, 6 oz. I had a horrible thought last night about an 11 pounder this time around. (I know it's not unheard of to push out larger babies but, I couldn't help but wonder.) Does anyone know if there is a way to tell when the baby is "too big" to come out vaginally? Would the doctors anticipate a larger baby this time around and discuss the possibility of an early induction or would they wait and possibly do a c-section? Also, how can they tell how large it may or may not be? I don't remember my ob last time around being concerned about size at all but, when my son was born, he was very quiet which worried me. The nurse at the time said that sometimes the larger babies are "shell-shocked" after the birthing process.
Any kind of insight would be great! Thanks Mamas!
