Just gave birth to a baby with a 38cm head and the birth and recovery was no different to my firstborn who was 36cm. So on that front you'll be fine, the body is pretty accomodating.

No idea in percentile but With ds1 I was told he had a huge head but no other mentions in size. He was a big baby 9pd11.5oz, with a 36.5cm head.
With ds2 i was told at 36wk growth scan he would be a 9pd but other measurements were average. He had a bigger head than ds1 (he was 9pd9.5oz, with a 37cm head. Born in 3hrs)

My boy has a whopper of a head (90+ percentile). I didn't know until he was born. Apparently big heads can be a sign of fluid on the brain but I was told you only need to worry if bub is off the chart (near 100%) and even then it's only a small number that have something wrong. Some babies just have big boofheads.
