“BAB (Big Ass Baby) is a term from an OBGYN I use to work for. Although he even said the same about my 8lb 14oz kid, which doesn’t seem all that big to me. My sweet “little” Rebekah was born at 41 weeks and 4 days. She was 9lb 7oz, 21 3/4inches long with a 15inch head! I didn’t tear at all!!!
I’m a fairly small framed person myself. I am 5’6″ and was about 120 lbs when I got pregnant with her. She was the easiest birth of my 3 kids and her labor was only about 5 1/2 hours long. All three of my babies were born at home with midwives.”
