Do you know what your birth weight was? My girls were both over 8 pounds when they were born and I was 8 lbs 10 oz. My brother was 10 lbs 15.5 oz which some would agree is a big newborn baby size. But check this story out. Recently a baby weighing close to 15 pounds was born to a Texas couple!
According to UPI couple “Jennifer and Eric Medlock of Arlington, Texas recently welcomed their second child to the world, a baby boy named Ali. He was born after being naturally conceived, but his older sister, Annabelle, was born with the help of fertility treatments after Jennifer was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Ali was born at Arlington Memorial Hospital weighing 14 pounds, 13 ounces—about twice the weight of the average newborn, and representing a new size record for the hospital. The Medlocks said the pregnancy was healthy, but Ali had to spend a week in the NICU due to low blood sugar and platelets. Guinness World Records lists the heaviest newborn on record as weighing 22 pounds.”
