Haha Thandiwe.....I think the people with multiple kids who are reading this are laughing, and the first time mamas reading your post are probably looking like this
For the record, first time mamas, this is my second pregnancy, but after birthing my first (7lbs 7 ounces) things pretty much went back to normal.....
True!! After my first, 8# 4oz, things did indeed go back to normal.
See, I'm not a first timer but my first was a section, so I admit I do worry quite a bit about that kind of stuff. I'm hoping if this baby is unnaturally big or positioned, that he just won't come out. I don't know if I want to necessarily birth a double digit weight, big headed baby.
If I had known, I don't think I would have agreed. My midwife said she thought 10# max when I saw her about a week before the birth. Right after the birth, she confided that they expected at least 11# but didn't want to tell me. I'm kind of glad they didn't; I don't think I would have been as gung-ho about it. As it was I didn't believe her fish scale...until he had to go in at just a few days old and the high-tech digital scale at the hospital matched the fish scale amount we saw earlier in the day at her check-up. He was abnormal and my results afterwards were abnormal. This isn't normal!!!!! Don't worry!!!!!!
