My mom gave birth to a couple of big babies. I weighed in at 10.12 lbs. and my younger sister was 12.6 lbs. at birth. It wasn't until I delivered my own children that I realized just what an amazing feat this was for my petite mother.
"The 37-year-old mother had gestational diabetes, which has been linked in some cases to heavier than normal babies.The baby was delivered by C-section and transferred to a Fatmawati, Indonesian hospital for respiratory problems."
