Since all the other questions are being asked (height, shoes size etc)

Was wondering if any ladies who were quite a bit overweight would share their labour stories with me...

First pregnancy I put on 6 st, and lets just say I never really lost it (had c section)

am wondering if u r quite overweight does this change your labour experience??

I was and am very overweight. I mean a larger large lady. As i said before about labour it was easy for me. Midwife didnt even need to tell me when to push etc as I jus knew. Just hope it goes as well this time around..

still not passing on the pillow tho

i am 5ft 3ish, and currently weigh 14st 7lb. was similar weight with all my girls. i didnt gain weight during pregnancy as i suffer pretty bad mornign sickness and my weight stays about the same throughout, which generally means i weigh less after giving birth than when i started lol.

dd1, labour was a non-starter really. waters broke nothing happened, so was put on a drip, 36hrs after waters broke but only 4 hrs of 'real' labour dd1 was born.

dd2 woke up in labour at 5am, at hospital by 6am, had her before 9am.

dd3, had waters broken by midwife at 4.30ish, had dd3 by 7.30.

I am 5ft 2ins was 7 stones when i fell pregnant, went to eleven stone's, after a year and a half of bloody hard work at the gym, im just under 8 stone's. when i was giving birth i felt and looked like a snow man, but being big did'nt find it hard to give birth.
