Well, I'm actually due to deliver my second any day now, so I can't comment on *that* part........
But my dd was nearly 10lbs........and, since I have nothing to compare it too, it wasn't bad. I mean, she came out, right? In reading about it, I've heard that some people say delivering a larger baby can be easier because your uterus has more surface area to contract on and so your contractions are more productive. I don't know if thats true or not.
Anyways.......I delivered my dd without an epi.........and pushing her out was a piece of cake. Really. I waited till I was ready and pushed her out in two pushes. If you can fit a 10lb baby out you probably will have the same ammount of ease as I had. And, I haven't worried one bit about this guy being bigger, to be honest.........I mean, my daughter wasn't bad so I figure I can handle a little bigger just fine if he comes out bigger.
They always say second is easier and I'm finding that my hips have spread more and my body is doing it's thing just fine.
Coming from someone who's delievered a big baby with no pain meds, it's really really not that bad. And having done it, I'm not scared one bit about doing it again.
