So I mostly lurk on here, but after last night's NST I think I'm going to need some perspective/encouragement! I'm 40 weeks today (yay!), and last night the doc estimated my LO's weight at 9 lbs 13 oz! I know that's just an estimate, but my sister just had a baby last month, also a boy, who weighed in at 9 lbs 15 oz (her first was 8 lbs 11 oz), so apparently we have big babies in our family. And I was hoping for a 5-6 pounder like DH was!
Anyways, my doc sounded pretty concerned about the size, and the fact that I'm not dilated at all, and said we need to start thinking about a c-section. Well that's the last thing I want, I have every intention of having this baby as naturally as possible. But now of course I'm a little freaked. I go back to the doc on Tues, at which point I'll reiterate my desire to avoid a C at (almost) all costs.
I guess I don't really have a question or anything, but needed to share with someone other than my DH and sis. I don't want to tell my friends because I don't think I can handle a chorus of "wow, that's huge!" etc. Or maybe I'm just a little grumpy today :-/
