How much did your baby weigh at birth? Natural or c-section?

I had a whopping 11 pounder! C-section they said he would have broken my pelvis haha! Thank God for ultrasounds that's how they predicted his weight!

  • FIrst was 10lb 2 oz and 24 inches, she was vaginal with no epidural (not by choice, it didn't take, LOL!!) I pushed for almost 5 hours, her shoulders got stuck coming out, and I had a fourth degree episiotmy, AWFUL!!!!

    Second was 9lb 11oz and 23 inches, and my Dr. chose to do a C-section (THANK GOD!!)

  • 9 lbs 11 oz, 8 lbs 13 oz, and 8 lbs 1 oz, respectively from oldest to youngest. The oldest, and largest was born naturally, but the other two were c-sections.

  • I gave birth to three children, all born naturally. The first weighed 7# 12 oz. The second weighed 8 # 9 1/2 oz. The third weighed 9 # 15 1/2 oz. I had nary a tear, nary an episiotomy, nary a stitch with any of them. They were born 18, 20, and 21 days after the date the doctor said they were due. I was never induced nor given anything to speed up labor. I recovered very quickly with each of them, and they were extremely healthy, contented babies. Each slept all night at three weeks or before.
