I ran across an interesting story on Yahoo last night about an Indonesian woman who delivered a 19.2 pound baby!
The woman delivered the child by C-section. (Thank Goodness!) The baby boy was 24.4 inches long! Here’s the full story from USA Today.
Apparently after the story ran on the Today show, Yahoo showed a huge spike in people searching for “19 pound baby,” “indonesian baby,” and “heaviest baby ever.” The Yahoo editors conclude that people love to brag about having big babies. (I couldn’t get the Today show clip to load but you can see it on the Yahoo link.)
My brother loves to tell everyone how big his babies were. He is so proud that his son was over 10 pounds and his daughter was just shy of 10 pounds. They were big ole babies and my sister-in-law is tiny!! My sister-in-law’s tailbone was knocked out of place delivering her first child, among other things!
All of my babies were right around 7 pounds. I can’t imagine trying to pass a 10-pounder, and I’m a heck of lot bigger than my sister-in-law!
So how BIG was your baby? Did you have C-section or vaginal delivery? Did it mess you up later? (Keep it clean folks. This is a family newspaper.)
