In brief: Likely

Most big babies are delivered without difficulty.
Speak with your og for his opinion if there will be any difficulty.

In brief: Yes

Depends on how big.
....Ultrasounds are very inaccurate at predicting the weight of the baby. They can be off by a pound or two towards the end of the pregnancy. If your baby may weigh more than 9 and 1/2 pounds you need to talk to your doctor about things to watch for in the delivery and your options.
