9 lbs and 10 lbs babies.... why are you so proud????? **EDIT**

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

OK this has popped in my head more then a few times and i don't think I'm the only one... i have heard and read a lot about women that have large babies. i mean like 9 lbs or 10 lbs+ and they are so proud that they were able to pass something that big out there nitch. i have often wondered why? i mean the first thing that comes to mind when i hear about a 10 lbs baby is, did she have a c section!? but NO, some woman have been able to push them out themselves. OK i can almost buy that, but when i hear that some didn't even tier i almost want to gag.

i know its not nice but every time i hear them say they didn't need to be stitched up afterwards... which you would think one would need if they had to pass a 10 lbs something! the first thing that pops in my head is that maybe the reason why they didn't need to to is because maybe they were a little too loose to start with!!

OK I'm going to get bashed now and called stupid.... but that really is what comes to mind when i hear stuff like that.

wow i posted this on my way to work yesterday and i never expected it to turn out like this! i realize that i made some mistakes when writing this and that i wasn't clear on what i was trying to get across. what i meant to get across was not rather a woman should be proud for having a large baby or any baby for that matter, but why they feel they need to brag about it to everyone.. i mean do we really need to know that you delivered a 10 lbs baby out your Mary Jane and how fabulose it is for doing so? . oh and i meant snitch not nitch...

My aunt had 4 kids and all normal size except one of her sons was 10 lbs... She said he was actually the easiest one to give birth to.. I do not know why or how but she had a daughter 4 years later and said it was a Really Hard labor. So idk.

My DD was 8lbs 3oz and I had a horrible 4th degree tear. Nurse told me I had the most stitches she ever seen someone get. My Ob told me I should be glad they don't charge by the stich anymore...also said I will probably need to have a c-section if I have anymore children.

When I hear some say they had no stiches I feel jealous. Sitting on, peeing on and pooping on a tear sucked so bad. Even now 2 years later after everything healed perfectly it still hurts after sex in the area that ripped.
