Does anybody on here have big babies? If so how big? and how was delivery?

I know they aren't huge, but my babies weighed 8lbs3oz. and 8lbs1oz. and were both 21 1/2 and 21 3/4 inches long. Labor wasn't that bad-epidural with the 1st and natural except for tiny shot of Nubaine with the 2nd.

Gerri.....I was just curious to see how many big babies are out there.....My 1st baby was a boy and he was 8lbs3oz..... My 2nd baby was a girl and she was 9lbs.... My 3rd baby was a boy and he was 10lbs5oz...... Im 16 weeks pregnant and im scared is baby will be even bigger.

guess it depends on what you consider big. My first was 9 lbs 14 oz. My second was 9 lbs and 11 oz. My last was 8 lbs 12 oz. When she came out I asked where the rest of her was! she seemed so small compared to my others and especially because they were predicting she would be 11 lbs. I was so freaked out about an 11 lb baby. My hubby said it wasn't that much bigger than 9 14. I couldn't belive he said that, after comparing the difference coming out of a body part of his, he quickly changed his mind and supported my concern. all for not as she was tiny. First delivery was rough but mostly because I couldn't get my contractions regular and thus wouldn't dialate. Once they started pitocin it went better. I pushed for almost 3 hours but had a successful v____al delivery. With my second it was time to push and I had a terrible cold. I stopped to cough and the midwife told me to keep up the coughing it was working just fine as a push. My son came out so easily. The third being so much smaller was a breeze! Only problem with all 3 was getting those contracitons going. It always amazes me how the body can accomodate and change so much for pregnancy. I never would have thought I could deliver such a large first baby v____ally. Just remember, your body is capable of more than you think and there are lots of ways to help a big baby along. Even if C-section is the only option....when you are holding your baby in your arms it will be worth it. Good luck to you. Are you expecting a big baby?

This is my first baby for myself but my sister's first son was 10lbs 21 1/2 inches long! Her second son was 9 1/2 pounds, and I forget his length :0(. My sister is 5' 11'' and is stick skinny, almost to skinny so I do not know where those babies weights came from. When my first nephew was born and his head came out the nurses were in complete shock!

i've heard that it's not the size of the baby that matters as much as the babys head size. candy, that must have been scary! but i don't think it's something that happens very often. how is your baby now?

i am slightly concerned too. my 20 week scan sized the baby to be that of a 22 week old foetus (dates are correct) at 5 months i look like i am 7 months. i am 5' 11" and my husband is 6' 6" and he was 9 lbs 8oz 6 weeks premature. i am going to give birth to an elephant!!
