Well, for the past 2 OB visits my uterus has been measuring 3-4cm more than typical.  Doctor estimates that he will be about 9-9.5 pounds!  What the hell?  How am I supposed to push that out?  My first was 8 lbs and he was born 3 weeks early.  I had him vaginally but I also tore pretty badly.  I don't know, as chicken as I am about surgeries and pain and stuff I might elect to have a C-section.  I can  deal w/labour pain as long as I know an epidural is pending but I'm just so traumatized by the whole tearing part of it!  I don't ever want to experience that again!

 if you didnt have problems the first time around, I am sure all will be well.

Good Luck!
