My sister is 5' 3" and 110 lbs pre-pregnancy, and she gave birth vaginally to a 10 lb. baby girl without any major complications.
Bigger doesn't always mean lots bigger. DD2 was a whoppin' 3 oz bigger than DD1. DD1 was 6 lb 10 oz and DD2 was 6 lb 13 oz. DD3 was born early so obviously smaller but given the "average" weight gain from when she was born til term she wouldn't have made it to 7lbs either.
There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.

jamie. crinkly (not quite crunchy) mama to 3 amazing little girls, an awesome little boy, and a baby girl making her debut at the end of this summer.
DS #2: 9lb 8 oz, born just shy of 42 weeks.
Me (oldest): about 8 1/2lbs
My brother (second): 10lb 15oz
My sister (third): about 9lbs
My second DS was 8pd8oz at 40w5d and took 2 contractions to push out.
My second was a sunny-side up baby and a face presentation to boot and he was, by far, easier to push out. Even if this little guy/girl of yours turns out to be the same size you will most likely have an easier time with pushing. Take Care and try not to worry!!!
Crunchy Mama to 3 boys '06 and '08 and '10
And a brand new baby born 4/12
Our family is now complete
smallest was a boy at 6-12 and largest was a boy at 7-14. My 42 weeker was a 7-12 girl and my due date baby was a 7-12 girl. :
My first vaginal birth took almost 3 hours of pushing and was 7-0. Since then I usually push from 5-20 minutes.
