Well, I made the mistake of talking to my mom about it, I was a C-section baby as was my brother, my bro was 10 pounds and went into distress, so she's all about having a c-section for big babies. Then my mom told my sister about it, she's a nurse, and her words were "don't let them keep you in labor for over 10 hours!" because she was in labor for 18 hours with my 9.7 pound niece...thing is, the doctor hasn't said the baby looks big, for all I know it could just be a nice little 7 pounder! Now I'm hoping the hospital staff doesn't have the same attitude as my family! I haven't really shared my birthing ideals with my family but I feel like I've made it clear that I *really* don't want a C-section if there's any avoiding it, but this is part of the reason that I have specified on my birthing plan that I don't want ANY visitors in my room unless I specifically request them.
