“See those chubby thighs? Newborn diapers wouldn’t fit around her legs! 🙂 Dad had to run out and get the next size up. She was born right at 40 weeks, at just over 9 pounds, my fourth baby – all born unmedicated at home with the same midwife. Midwife correctly estimated her weight. I am 5’6” and weighed about 140 pre-pregnancy. Her shoulders stuck and midwife had to pull her just a bit, but she was delivered unmedicated, with no tearing on my part, and no broken collarbone on hers. (PS That’s big sister in the background, who watched the whole thing!)”
