So, I was reading some mag in the supermarket that Kate Hudson--Goldie Hawn's daughter--had her baby a few weeks ago via c-section because the baby was too big for her body. He weighed 8lbs.11ozs. The doctors told her that they needed to do a c-section because they feared the baby was growing too big for her small frame and estimated that it weighed close to 9lbs. Is this possible to determine this before labor even begins. My ds was 8lbs11ozs and I am 5'2", 105lbs. I had a vaginal delivery after pushing for 4hrs. I am just curious if this is a widespread problem--too big babies for women who are supposedly too small. When and how can you tell if this is an issue?
