Me?

Quoting cpflum08:

I think she had the best care she could of had! And ultrasounds can be off as much as 2-5 lbs that late. Maybe you should do some resurching before you speak out your ass!




Quoting ShannieP:

They told me my last baby was 4lbs. I had weekly ultrasounds for 8 weeks to monitor her.


She was born 6lbs11oz






Quoting merinasmommy:

get better prenatal care next time and youll know how big your baby will be.they were within 3 oz of how big dd was going to be








Quoting hippiemamax3:

Thanks Allie!










Quoting merinasmommy:

and you sound like a bitch idc whatt you think so have a great day....












Quoting Allie_kat1:

Wow, way to be a bitch... An epi would have likely made things worse as she would not have been able to move at all to help relieve the dystocia. She said she had no idea the baby was that big, and once a baby is far enough out for a shoulder dystocia, it is way too late for an epi or csection. You sound like a very angry person.














Quoting merinasmommy:

I have them but ill save them for my dd who isnt being a baby...poor you...you could have had an epideral thats your own stupidity.
















Quoting hippiemamax3:

Bragging?








Myself and my son nearly died.








It was scary, traumatic and extremely painful.








My son ended up in the nicu.








I am in physical therapy (7 mos pp) over pelvic issues it as well as counselling due to birth trauma.








Why the fuck would I brag about that?








Im just curious if its really that unusual due to the reaxtions I always get.








But yeah, if you have a cookie Ill take it.


















Quoting merinasmommy:

Sounds like your just trying to breg to me...want a cookie?

I was unbelievably miserable. Im only 5 ft tall so there was not much room for him to grow. My belly grew straight out. It felt like my skin was ripping apart. :-/


Quoting ZakkarysMom:

You must have been SO uncomfortable being pregnant!




Quoting hippiemamax3:

This was about SEVEN WEEKS before he was born.

Wow. Yes it is that shocking! And congrats. That's awesome.


My first one weighed 2 pounds 3.3 ounces when born 2½ months early, he's now 15 and fine. My second weighed like 6 pounds, he is 11 years old. My youngest was almost 7 pounds. 

my middle one had open heart surgery at ten days old and came home from the hospital 6 days after having surgery.

Most people think if the baby is over 8 pds you need a csection for whatever reason.

That's why I had to have an emergency c-s, they said it was that or breaking his shoulder.

Quoting Jenn8604:

IDK! I guess. Most drs want u to have a csection if ir baby is that big tho. To prevent tearing all the way back to. But if u and baby are fine good. I know one girl who had an 11lb baby and pushing him out broke his shoulder and tore mom so bad she needed two blood transfusions.
