More awesomeness

Whiny first time mom, being induced for being overdue and 4 cm dilated (ie elective induction, but one with a good chance of succeeding). She's been very whiny from 32 weeks on.

Now, before people start in on me, most pregnant women start whining right around that time. I don't know a late in pregnancy woman who can sleep comfortably or go more than an hour without peeing or can breathe deeply easily. It's just the way it is, and it sucks. I know, I have two kids so I give sympathy than point out that "yep, you're normal. You're pregnant."

So, back to my point. Patient gets to complete. 24 minutes of pushing. 10 pounds, 5 ounces. No shoulder issues. No tears.

Day-um!

No wonder she was whiny!

No tears? I'm so jealous. My 10 lb 1 oz would have torn me up. Luckily my OB was faster and had a straight episiotomy done as soon as he saw the tear trying to start. I wasn't diabetic either. Some people just have big babies.

Congrats on a good delivery. :)

okay, shouldn't there be a rule against growing them that big?! o-u-c-h. a picture of such a birth for the sex ed classes might go a long way, though....
