i was induced 15 days late with my first 10 years ago, i had the gel to induce me, then they put me on a drip to make contractions come faster then they broke my waters and after 72 hours they decided i needed a c section as the baby was getting distressed my son weighed 7lb 81/2 oz.

 

then i had my daughter 2 years ago by elective c section and she was 7lb 8oz

all went to plan no problems at all.

My first was 9lb 10oz and I was only 17, I had her naturally but had symphasis pubis dysfunction (that no-one told me thats what I had) so for 2 years after I was in agony with my pelvis!

No 2 was- 8lb 9oz( 2 weeks early)

No 3 was- 8lb 8oz( 2 weeks early)

No 4 was- 8lb 0oz( three weeks early)

ALL by c-section due to the pain in my pelvis. I still suffer now from pain due to no 1 11 years ago!

1st was 6lb 3oz on time, normal delivery. Suffered from preeclampsia during labour.

2nd was 9lb 7.5oz 3 days past term, induced, normal delivery. Induced because of size of baby and polyhydramnios (extra amniotic fluid)

 

I had 2nd degree tear with first and 3rd degree tear with second. Oddly had spd with first and it wasn't as bad with the second. Although my bump was very large with second that I could hardly walk anywhere anyway.

I was scared all through my pregnancy that I was going to have a big baby. This was because when i was born I was 10lb and my partner was 10lb 9oz.

 

I kept telling my midwife this but she thought I was just exagerating and let me go 2 weeks overdue, I was induced.

 

I had to have an emergancy c section as he was just not coming out, he was too big.

 

I was amazed when I was told his weight, a massive 11lb 6oz!!!

 

I just wish my midwife would have taken me more seriously, If I would have been induced earlier I might have been able to have a natural birth.

My boy was 9lb 5oz I weighed 6st at begining of pregnancy and a size 8 in trousers. Was mortified at the end when I weighed just over 9st and in a size 18 elasticated botoms.

 

With my princess I did not gain much weight, only went up 2 sizes in clothes. And she weighed 6lb 2.5 oz at 4 week early.

 

They said if she had gone full term that 6 would of been a 10 OUCH.

My son I had to have ventous help cos he got stuck and my girl was delivered naturally.

I would do the labour 100 times over there is drugs for that there aint for the 16 year after lol

I was induced a week after my due date - 24 horendous hours in labor - took every drug i was offered (proposed to the anaesthatist after my epidural cos it felt sooo much better!) and my daughter was 10lb 13oz.. technically it was a natural birth, though there were many many drugs!
