    i am not that petite lol i am 5'4" and i had two babies with no problems. labor went really smooth. i was 97lbs pre preg for my first birth and ended up at 137 at the time of labor that labor was 7 hours and pushed baby out in less then 20 minutes. second labor i gained more weight but that labor was even faster...less then 3 hours and baby came out by my second or third push. my labors were realy quick and easy and i had no pre labor pains/pressure leading up to labor like how i keep hearing about on here

    I had to be induced because of high BP but it was all 13 hours. I will say my daughter weighed 6lbs 5 oz when we left hospital and it's hard having people notice her small size and look at you funny when you say she's 4 weeks old not one when they ask and assume she's only one week old. Also my daughter still is in newborn sizes and sometimes preemie. Everyone I know who had babies close to me had babies 7.5lbs or bigger and I feel so crappy their babies are so much bigger. I'm 5'4" and husband 5'6" so we expected her to not weigh a lot but comparing to other babies and what strangers think is normal is hard.

    I had the best l&d ever. Went to the hospital for really bad menstrual like cramps. They checked me and I was only at 1cm, but they decided to keep me for observation anyways. Well an hr went by and I really had to go to the bathroom so I told the nurse and she asked if I wanted to get checked again. I said sure, I wasn't really expecting any change, but to everyones surprise I was 8cm dilated. They doc got there 30 min later and I was fully dilated. After 5min of pushing my daughter was here. 6lbs 3oz. I didnt tear or anything. At 4wks she was 10lbs 3oz.
