my 3rd child was supposed to be a 7 pounder, but i knew better than that, having had another two big babies before and being told the were also 7lbs. the problem with the last is that he got stuck and he suffered Erb's palsy (spl?), so i really dont think docs can really tell how big a baby is...even through u/s because i had many with all 3. now im preg with my 4th and last and i was told she'll be another 10 pounder...yay for me...im having a c-section with this one like i did with the 1st.

My best friend had GD with both kids, her first was so large, esp for her, she is tiny and Mackenzi got stuck during the birth, her arm didn't work for a few weeks, and they told them it would never work, luckly it does and she is a very healthy 5 year old!  But if the baby is too big I would really recommend a c-section-  I had one with my first and I was scared, but it was really very easy!  Good luck!!
