Has anyone out there had a large baby? I've been told from around 26 weeks that this one was above average in size but now when I walked in at 34 weeks my OB said "Oh God you're really big!". I'm glad he was so honest but now I'm scared stiff! This baby seems to be taking up every ounce of space that the twins did first time round. When I asked what "big" was he indicated 10lb+. I've been doing some research on the net and now I'm worried if I try to have her naturally that there's the possibility of me being torn to shreds or that she could end up with a broken collar bone if she gets stuck. The boys are only 2.5 yrs and I have very little family help around so don't have the luxury of a long hospital stay. I had the boys by emergency ceasar and wonder if it's worth asking for this one just to be done also by ceasar just to be cautious and prevent what may or may not be a bad delivery. I'm so exhausted already now at 35 weeks that I was thinking of seeing if he'll do the ceasar at 38 weeks instead of dragging it out 'til 40. Surely if she's that big already she's got to be pretty healthy? Has anyone got some advice?
