How will having a big baby affect the birth
I have had five babies in the nine pound range:
The other three were just under eight pounds and one was eight pounds.
The only issues I had with my births was the medical interventions with my first because they didn't think or know if I could deliver a big baby. Then with my 9.3 daughter I experienced slight shoulder dystocia since she came so fast. She had a broken collar bone at her week old or 2 week check up. The nurse practitioner figures the doctor may have broken it to get her out.
Other than that my births were normal. I pushed about an hour with my first and last but the others came a lot faster.
Logan was 8lbs 3oz and 20inches long. Dr that delieverf him said no more over 8lb babies as logans shoulder got stuck. The dr was very close on breaking his shoulder. He was my biggest and he still is. He is 3.5 and weighs about 34lbs and about 36inches.
Haiden was my smallest. He was born at 5lbs 4oz and 18inches long. He is now 6 and weighs 30lbs and 40inches.
Vincent was in between. He was 6lbs 11oz and 20inches. He now will be 7months and he weighs in at 14.5lbs and about 25inches.
