My VBAC baby (actually HBAC) was 9 lb., 1 oz. I was only in labor active labor for about four hours and I pushed for 30 minutes. The reason I had a c-section was because my ob thought my son would be too big and shoulder dystocia would be likely; he was also 9 lb., 1 oz.

#1 c/s 7 lbs. 14 oz.
#2 vbac 8lbs. 3 oz. with nuchal hand

My twin sister's vbac babe was almost 10 lbs I think (also with nuchal hand) so I know I can birth bigger too

Well my guy was early (36.6)
He weighed 7.10

(My c/s babe was (39.5) and weighed 9.6)

But if you do the math, if my VBAC babe went term, he probably would've been over 9lbs.

c/s baby: 9 lbs 2 oz, posterior and asynclitic
VBAC baby: 7 lbs 10 oz, anterior

Yes, she was smaller, and I'm sure that didn't hurt, but her head circumference at birth was nearly as big as his. I really think it was his abysmal positioning that was the true problem.
