My son was 10lb born and took me 37 hours to deliver him so as you can imagine when pregnant with my second I was petrified!
My daughter was born on her due date (same as my son) weighing in at 9lb 15 and took less than 2 hours to deliver. I didnt even push once she came out on her own!
I'm being induced on Thursday (39 weeks) due to severe pain from SPD and I'm not stressing over this babies wieght as I've known women have 6lb babies and have horrendous labours.
You shouldnt be offered a cesarean just because of how big the baby is unless your pelvis is too small, in which case the head will not engage properly.
I know it's easier said than done but try not to worry. Your body is designed to have babies and it will do the job regardless of the size of the baby.
