Dd1 - 7.4
ds1 - 9.3
dd2 - 7.8

Both my girls were small. My son was a linebacker. I am currently pg with another boy, and I expect another football player.

Son's birth was fastest and easiest, but I tore worst with him. Last two babies born at home.

DD1: 7lbs 8oz (vaginal)
DS1: 9lbs 9oz (c-section)
DD2: 9lbs, 6oz (c-section)

I have never had GD. DS had a health condition that made c-section the safest thing for him so we went with that. I had a repeat c-section with my daughter after him. We have a family history of big babies...my mom delivered a 9lb 11oz (me) and a 10lb 4oz (brother) vaginally with no problems. My hubby was 9lbs 12 oz...his mom delivered him vaginally too (but got a 4th degree tear due to his broad shoulders and forceps delivery--he should have been a c-section).
