    Thanks for the advice everyone! I'm not worried about my as long as Bubs is okay.
    I'm in SA. Does anyone know if I can request a cesarean in the public system?
    Having said that, my aunty gave birth naturally to a ten pounder and I think my other cousin was similar size. She was living in a country with very little access to doctors too. I'll have to think about it.

    I'm another that has big babies (4.62kg, 3.84kg, 4.67kg). All were vaginal deliveries, two of them drug free (my two biggest funnily enough!). My first was the most difficult but I believe that to be because I laboured on my back and because he was completely posterior with a very large head. My advice would be to stay active during labour.

    I didn't have a growth scan but my daughter was born in the 91st percentile and was 3.88kfs. No issues with birthing her. Nice short labour too.

    Don't let them scare you with the percentile stuff. The scans can be wrong. Even if bubs is big there is often no reason why you can't have a safe vaginal delivery.

    My first was 4.2 and second bub 3.9 kg (both girls). No one told me my first was big until I was in labour and that was not helpful information... all it does is create fear. Both were relatively short labours, vaginal deliveries. Highly recommend reading JuJu Sudins 'Birth Skills'- she is a physio who promotes birthing techniques to help manage pain, fear and stay active.

    DD was 3kg and DS was 4kg. DS was induced at 40+3 and was a much easier labour & birth. My OB didn't worry about size, no one suggested my bub was big until I went in for induction and I told the midwife that I thought I was having a girl and that I expected a small baby like DD. She smiled and gave my belly a meaningful look and said "I don't think that's a small baby!". Turns out her instincts were better than mine, I was having a big boy!

    They are only an approximate so the accuracy varies.

    DS was estimated to be a tiny 5pd ish baby, He was born days later 7pd 1oz
