Apparently I grow big babies.

Or atleast that is what the OB & Midwife have both predicted.
My first appointment in MI was super discouraging as the first thing the OB (that I was really excited about since she was my doctor years ago) asked was if we'd like to schedule a Cesarian.
Needless to say I was pretty shocked since this word was never uttered at the Birth Center we were going to deliver at in PA. The reasoning behind it? Hux was a wide-shouldered, 9lb 8oz boy & had shoulder dystocia. Since this can be a reoccurring theme they want to be as prepared as possible-which is great, but you best believe I will do everything possible to avoid a c-section on little Lady's birthday.

So that's our mini-saga in the baby growing department. 
Aside from that we have a full-blow, defiant, energetic, hilarious little man who keeps us busy from sun up to sun down. We've began to really get serious about potty training--started to cloth diaper full-time which makes it alot more uncomfortable for Hux to sit around with a soggy bottom, and more eager about putting it in the potty. Well, that's our theory for now. Will keep you posted. We have also been giving him more responsibilities when it comes to dressing and grooming himself. He can take his clothes off, wash his hair, put his pants on (with a 50% success rate), brush his teeth and seems to really get a confidence boost from doing all these things. 

Life in our new little home is quite fulfilling these days & we are so beside ourselves with anticipation of baby Sister's arrival...six weeks really isn't all that long afterall!

How discouraging to have that suggested to you!! Have you researched into any local OB's or midwives with a good success rate of delivering broad-shouldered babies? Seems there are certain birth positions and maneuvers that can be done... hang in there mama!! Natural or cesarean, healthy baby and healthy mom is the goal and you'll rock it!!
