Congrats! I too had my mw check me because if I was 3-4 I was going to the hospital for the epidural (thankfully I was complete!).

Good job mama! I bet he is absolutely adorable! My nephew was close to 11 pounds and he was a big boy yet he fit in newborn outfits for about 2 weeks odd huh?

I'm convinced that stores "vanity size" infant clothes. DD was 7lb 15oz at birth, and she fit into the larger preemie sizes for several weeks.

DS can fit into some of his newborn items, but not all of them. Most of his 0-3 month stuff is a little on the big side. We're trying to use the newborn stuff while we still can.
