My niece just had one last week. The baby was 9 lbs 5 ozs. They were afraid he was too big and they might have to break his collarbone. . . or something like that. They decided rather than have her go through labor for hours and have to do a c-section anyways just to go ahead and schedule it. She said the dr commented several times as my great nephew was born that his head was very big and they were glad they didn't try a vaginal birth. My poor niece thought she had this badly proportioned baby with a big head and little body (kind of like those martian pictures). Not the case. He is beautiful and beautifully proportioned. They took him to pediatrician Saturday for his first visit and there was another newborn who only weighed about 5 lbs. My niece said when she saw how little that baby's head was compared to hers she was thankful they did a c-section.
