I have pituitary dwarfism and I gave birth naturally. What does this mean? I stopped all growth and development at age eight. My puberty had to be forced by a huge whack of hormones, but because I hit it artifically, certain things didn't happen. One of those was hip development: I never got hips. Ever. Even as an adult, AFTER having a baby, I wear girls underwear because I can't fit into even the smallest women's sizes.
But I can birth naturally.
Why? Because our bodies are MADE TO!!! We stretch, we separate, we squat and open our pelvic outlets by another 33%... we can do amazing things - your body will birth this baby just fine.
Oh, PS - in weeks 37 through 42 the average weight gain in a fetus is 2/3 of a pound, ultrasounds are off by as much as 2lbs, and fundal height estimates in no way tell you if you're having a "big baby" or not. They change depending on position, fluid levels and a number of other factors.
