I was adopted lizzy so I am not sure. But all three of my girls were quick. The first was 2 hours start to finish but she was small 6oz and she is the one they are thinking may have this as well. She has to be monitored with ct scans (insurance won't cover the MRI for her since she has no dx). She has all the symptoms though. : (. Not sure if that helps u or not
I was 10lbs 4oz! I believe I was a pretty quick delivery also... and I was the first of five... the last one took about 10 min!
I have one son and he was out in 5 hrs... and it would have been a lot quicker if he would have been facing down toward my back instead of up toward my tummy (not breach) they had to use the vacuum he was 8lbs 15oz.
I was recently dx with EDS and I've been doing a lot of reading on that lately... I guess it is common for people with EDS to have quicker pregnancies <8 hrs I believe.
Well I was the last of three pregnancies. I was also the biggest at a whopping 5 lbs. I was delivered very fast, but healthy. I wasn't early, I was right on time. Shorthly after as I grew I did become very sick and stayed very sick most of my childhood and Adolecence. I had a severe Pulmonary disorder. Very close to Asthma, but with some differences. I spent a lot of time in the hospital growing up. I also had chronic strep throat and Tonsillitis. I was 15 when the Drs. finally removed my tonsils. As soon as I moved out I quit having the major breathing problems that I grew up with so I always blammed it on the fact that my parents smoked and that my mom smoked through her pregnancy. I also started smoking at 13 so I am sure that added to my breathing problems. I quit smoking after I grew up and moved out. I haven't smoked since I was 21. I am now very healthy as far as immune system and Pulmonary issues. I rarely get sick and I am able to control my breathing issues with an albuterol inhaler. The last few months however I have started to have some problems breathing not like wheezing but it feels like I have something in my lungs blocking some of the space. I have mentioned this to the Drs., but they shrug it off. I think It's worth at least a chest x-ray, but they don't seem to think so.
Anyway I see I got off subject a little, but maybe someone else has had some of these issues?? May or May not have any relevance, but I thought I would throw it out there and see :)
I was 7lbs11oz--normal pregnancy, average delivery w/ exception of foreceps. I did have the cord wrapped around my neck--which I claim is why I don't like turtlenecks or scarves!! But, maybe that is a CM thing too!!
My 2 kids were 8lbs13oz (40w2d) and 6lbs14oz (37w)--I had platelet issues (low) with both pregnancies and developed pre-e/pih with my daughter while be monitored at the hosp--and went into labor on my own while I was there. But, otherwise super healthy pregnancies--and loved being pregnant!!
I was 7lbs 6 oz, but it was a complicated delivery. My Mom's blood pressure sky rocketed and she almost had a stroke during delivery. I don't think I had cord wrapped around my neck or anything, but I hate turtlenecks too.
All four of my children were C-section (breech, side ways, right position but stubborn, and side ways that wound up being emergency due to low heart rate). So far none of the kids have been diagnosed w/ Chiari and I pray that they never have to deal with it.
My son was born 13 prematurely. He weighed just under 2lbs.(Emergency C. because I had pre eclampsia) He had lots of health issues until he was 4 years old. Mostly breathing problems and tonsillitis. Approx 19 Febrile convulsions and Asthma. By the age of 7 all of his health issues had disappeared completely and little more than the occasional cold from then until January this year.
I figured I would post my children's deliveries too and see if there is any comparison.
I have a suspecion that my middle son may be showing some early signs of a CM.
He has HAs and Migraines from time to time. His neck hurts sometimes. He is very clumbsy and seems off balance.(Always has been since he started walking)
We use to laugh about it and think it was just him tripping over his long flat feet, but now I am scared it may actually be a symptom of Chiari.
My first son was born at 36 weeks. 6lbs. 4oz. After being in labor for 18 hrs. his heart rate started to go down and he was in distress, they had to use the vacuum extraction to deliver him. I had an epidural with this labor and the connector came off and I had a leakage.
He is 16 now and very healthy.
The only problems I had during this delivery was very high BP
My second son was born at 34 weeks. 5lbs 9oz. I was in labor for 36 hrs. When he was finally delivered he was malnourished because of a knot in the umbilical cord. Dr. said if he would have stopped my labor as was the plan he would have died. I also had an epiduaral during this labor.
He is 14 now and always has seemed to have a weakened immune system. He also suffers from Asthma, other then that he is healthy.
My third son was born at 40 weeks (on his due date) I was in labor for 2 hours from the very first contraction until the delivery. I almost had him in the parking lot. I had him completely natural no meds and no problems at all. He was 8lbs. 4oz.
He is 11 now and very healthy.
After the delivery I developed clots. Boy, was that an experience. I thought I was doing great and got up to use the restroom. All of a sudden I felt like I was in a tunnel. I remember telling my friend to get a nurse and that was the last thing I remember. The next memory was of me looking up at all these nurses and my husband and friend all looking at me like I was dead. Very scary.
My BP had dropped and I had passed out. It was later determined that I was clotting inside and that was the culprit. Other then that I had no problems.
what i was looking for was to see how many of us were larger babies...8lbs or more...and what kind of deliveries our mothers had with us. i was honestly expecting to see a lot more of us on the bigger side. blew that theory out of the water!
I am a twin, and was arouind 6 lbs. I came out 2nd and started to come out feet first...I tell people I was kicking my brother out, lol. I do have one foot that is considerably smaller, both are proportional, just one is a 7 and the other a 5.5.
