I was around 210 when I got pregnant with my son. I delivered at 232. I wouldn't say I had a difficult labor - it was looong - about 18 hours from start to finish. I didn't exercise - and I feel that I would have had an easier time if I had exercised more. I am heavier pre-pregnancy this time around so I need to get my booo-taaaa movin'.
I was 200 when I got pg with my daughter. I delivered at 265. I was induced 2 days after my edd (never knew my LMP went by u/s dates). But Jessica didn't come out until 34 hrs after that. I believe I had a difficult time because she wasn't ready to come out yet... I feel if I had waited, then I would've had a quicker labor.
I started this pg off heavier than 200 lbs. But as of now I'm still under my pre preg weight.
I don't think weight has anything to do with it eaither. I've only been in true labor once, it lasted over 30 hours and I was barely at a 5, but that is because HIS head was too big to fit through my bones. I eneded up having a c-section with him and repeats with the other two (c-sec date April 22, 2006). Walking, at least, does help a lot with the discomforts of pregnancy. I was pretty lazy with my first and walked a lot with my second, and not so much with this one and my second pregnancy was the easiest. Don't worry too much about it, your body has a way of knowing what it's doing.

I had to have a c-section because my son was breech. However, I had to go in two days earlier than the scheduled c-section date. he was supposed to be born the morning of December 18th and I went into the hospital 11pm on December 15th because I went into labor. When the doctor checked me I was almost fully effaced and I dialted to 4cm. I really wish he was head down because I feel I would have done very well with a vaginal birth. I wasnt in pain it just was annoying. Everything was so annoying and I was yelling at poor DH for the stupidest things.
