I volunteer to help w/ the breast feeding.

*Finally! I know what I was born to do!*

Like I told my wife (about a hundred times a day) when she was pregnant: It's good to be the man.

And did she chase you with pruning shears?

"The 'little' girl, Nadia, was delivered by Caesarean section..."

Yeah, ya think?


That poor woman. But then she has 11 others ALL of whom weighed 11 pounds or more!

*memo: stay off the Russian diet*

quickly returns russian male order groom. not taking any chances!

Punkin, not more often than she normally does!

Egads! The only thing more frightening than a 17 1/2 pound baby would be having a 17 1/2 pound baby naturally.

No kidding Jeff!

Two points of advice for this woman:
1) Birth Control
2) Less starch in your diet

I remember distinctly when child #3 was born. He ended up being 9 pounds, 15 ounces, and as he was emerging, I was thinking, "I have a pretty good idea of what does and doesn't fit down there...and that ain't gonna fit." Amazingly, though, as she always does, my wife came through and birthed the boy. Today, Mr. Fat Baby is a skinny little 9-year-old.

All I will say is..


Nevermind changing the nappies -- I'm thankful I didn't give birth to it!

owwwwwwwww. well, thanks for all those cute little baby things. gotta return em for year-old size..........

*eyes bug out*

Gee, this kid makes my 12 lb 4 oz son look absolutely petite! He was the biggest baby ever born in that hospital. People kept coming in and looking at me like I should have three heads or something. The experience cured me from having any more children. The next time, I adopted, and let someone else do all the work.

Large babies can be a sign of gestational diabetes (where a woman is diabetic only during pregnancy). If you know you have it and follow a special diet, the baby will not get so big. I don't know much about the proper diet for diabetes, but I think it involves more protein and less carbohydrates than this lady consumed. If untreated, the birth rates do tend to increase with each pregnancy.
