hiya my names laura, i was only 17 when i had my 1st child, and i was 18stone, i had a really bad birth and i was wondering if it was becuz of my weight???
is anyone around this weight and did u have a easy labour???
scared mum of one already xx
hi again laura!! when I gave birth my weight had shot up to 15 stone, the consultant and aneathatist seemed to think that because of my weight Id need an epidural?!?! why?? any way I gave birth naturally with just gas and air, it was a long labour but only 12 hrs in established labour (4 days of slow!!) so I guess its not just weight but your overall fitness level!!
I do know that the more worried and scared you are the more difficlt your labour will be, I was relaxed throughout and really didn't find it too bad the pain was manageable etc etc, ask your mw if there are any traumatic birth classes you can go to and try to get on top of your fears so you can make this pregnancy and birth a positive experience for you!!
yeh at the moment i weigh 18 stone 6, but i eat healthy and get regular exercise i am more thock boned and muscly then fat.
was you heavier with ur second?
I was 16 stone when I gave birth to my 3rd and she was really easy.. 4 hours start to finish x
Hi there. Just to say, i was about 15 stone when i had my twins. They were natural and were only 5 1/2 hours from beginnig to end, so yes it is possible. Bearing in mind the twins are 14 years old next month, and i have a little girl, who'll be 2 tomorrow. xxxxxxxx
