    Poor woman! My last baby was estimated to be over 10lb (6ft4 husbands fault) by her due date. No way I was pushing her out. Straight in for c-section!

    I don't blame you! My OH is about 6ft2, and is quite well built (to put it politely!) so hoping the baby takes after me!!

    Haha, same as mine. 17 stone that used to be muscle. My son was 9lb3, but very long and skinny. Wasn't taking the chance when my daughter came along though!

    Now I am getting nervous! They can tell roughly how big it is going to be can't they?! If it is near double figures I am opting for c-section! I am a big scaredy-cat!!

    Yeah they should be able to. Don't want to scare you, but with my first they said they didn't think he would be more than 6lbs, possibly 7 at a push, then 9lb3 Jack arrived. I had to cut the feet off all the 0-3 month sleep suits to fit him in!

    Wow! What a huge baby. Im hoping my lil boy is only going to be tiny as im only 5'2 and was 6lb born and my OH is 5'3 and was 5lb 11oz. So fingers crossed for a small baby x

    well big babies run in my family- I was nearly 10lb and all my siblings were over 9lb- also my mums side of family are big babies too

    However hubby is a mere 5ft 9 and small babies run in his family- well- normal size ... Compared to my side

    I'd like a 7lb baby please :lol:
