My son was born at 40w5d, and I knew the date of conception because I was charting. He was only 6 lb 11 oz, and everyone noted how small he was for being overdue. One of my aunts said "I'll bet your dates were off"
: Why? Because I didn't have a GIANT baby after 40 weeks like everyone thinks you do and OBs tell clients to get them to schedule inductions?
This aunt also told me (right after having my son- she just came in unannounced because she worked at the hospital that we transfered to from my birth center) "I'm so glad you decided to be here. It's so much safer" Umm yea. I HAD to be there, it wasn't like I decided to be there over a birth center.
My cousin also told me that I should have had a csection, because it's way easier than going through labor, and it's actually safer. I let it slide.
