So, I went back to sleep this morning, and dreamed that I had an 11 pound baby girl, who was chubby, calm, content and couldn't fit into any of her clothes. When I picked her up she felt soooooo heavy, and I couldn't remember anything about the labor. I kept asking people around me what had happened, and how I managed, and how big she really was, kept looking for her stats...

Is this a premonition? How does one go about birthing an 11 pound baby? I won't eat any more chocolate, I promise!

Well... it's only a dream, right? Let's hope it's not really a premonition!

I sure hope labour dreams aren't premonitions because I dreamt that I was 30 cm's dilated! I don't know if that would be good or bad.

I have a friend who just had an 11 lb'er, seriously. Vaginally, without medications.

I had a dream that I had a 10 pound baby on Feb 8 (42 weeks 2 days). Consistent with the usual accuracy of my prophetic dreams, I actually had a 6lb 9oz baby on January 12 (38 weeks). I wouldn't worry too much

My best friend's second baby was 10 lb 12 oz. She had in vaginally, no interventions, no meds, and no tearing.

So do I think you're having an 11 lb baby --- probably not! But take heart that it CAN be done.
