NOOOOOOO. I was so pumped after last wks appt that head was down and id get a shot to vbac.
So just praying that she is misjudging and babe is tiny.
Estimates (by feel and by US) are just that; guesses! There are plenty of cases where baby is estimated to be huge, then comes out teeny tiny. Also, while nobody wants to push out a 10 lb baby, baby fat is squishy! It will squish right out along with the rest of baby. The extra weight isn't likely on baby's head, it's probably on its chunky thighs and belly and those are the easy parts to get out :-) And always remember, they can't force you to do anything! You're the boss of you and this babe!

Over the moon!! After 17 months of TTC, our sweet miracle, Corwin Gregory, was born August 29, 2012!! ...And our surprise baby number two, Locklan Thomas, arrived April 18, 2014..... And now surprise NUMBER THREE(!!) is due Dec 28, 2016. We're on a roll now!
