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?

Me too! Lol

I was so exhausted. :)


Quoting hippiemamax3:

Way to go! Successful homebirths make me happy.




Quoting bellaamore:

I get the same when people find out I had a home birth with my first child. She was ten pounds even. Seventeen and a half hour labor, five of those pushing.


It's not so big a deal. After all the talk, I expected it to be much worse.

Not shocking to me, but my son was 10lb 9oz 23.5 inches & born naturally as well. But people seemed shocked about my son, so I understand what you mean.

It's just not common. Since the average birth weight is 7lbs. My son was 9.5.

Good for you.
There wont be a next time.
My prenatal care was great. I made my own choices (like declining ultrasounds, testing, etc).
I never asked for opinions on those choices.

It shouldn't be shocking, as our bodies are built for delivering babies, but many women and drs don't trust the body anymore  :/
