    My doctor said even the weight is 10% less, that means 3,6kg. It will be difficult to give birth.
    I will go to health center on friday, let`s see what they will tell me.

    my first baby had a really big head (was told so from very early on) and that affected the delivery. i would definitely get an epistomology (don't know the proper spelling) during birth (good for the baby, not for you) but at least the birth will be safer as there is a bigger space for the head to come out. whether c-section or not is a personal decision, being the 1st one, I didn't want a c-section that's all...

    Hi

    I think it also depends on your body size etc and take some guidance from your doctor. My two babies were almost 11 pounds each - 4.8kg and I had them both naturally (albeit with an epidural). First time I needed ventouse/suction (and took a while to recover). Second time, no intervention (and healed much faster). Stitches for both. I agree with the above that the predictions are all just a guess. Both doctors I had got the weight prediction wrong.
