I was there holding my ex's hand during the entire 57 hour (or so it seemed) birthing process. DD was her first child. My ex weighed 105 lbs pre-pregnancy and DD was 10+ lbs. She may have been 10 lbs, 6 oz IIRC. No doubt my ex can recall it to the gram.

DD was delivered vaginally. All the while, I thanked God for making me a male. I don't see why we're not extinct. I can see why a woman gives birth once, but after the experience I have no idea why they do it
