It's not all that shocking but it is pretty rare probably. My G-G-Ma had a 14lb baby but the baby died... After learning about that, nothing shocks me.

Everyone is!
I think a lot of the shock factor has to do with my size. Im 5ft tall. Lol

I wouldnt say I was brave...
I had NO clue he was gonna be that big. Lol


Quoting choocam:

It's not shocking, but I would call it amazing. My son weighed 9 pounds 4 ounces and was 23 in half inches long and I gave birth to him natural with out a c- section, he was a little smaller than yours but still a big baby. I did get the epidural though lol. I would call you brave.

Many big babies are very unhealthy at birth :-(

I had no clue my son was big either. Guess my son followed after me, because when i was born i was 9 pounds something, but my mom had a c-section, but i did not i pushed him right out in 8 hours. he was late also. did your son have too have his sugar tested everytime he had too eat? my son did because he was a bigger baby and he had a little bit of jaundice too.

Bragging?
Myself and my son nearly died.
It was scary, traumatic and extremely painful.
My son ended up in the nicu.
I am in physical therapy (7 mos pp) over pelvic issues it as well as counselling due to birth trauma.
Why the fuck would I brag about that?
Im just curious if its really that unusual due to the reaxtions I always get.
But yeah, if you have a cookie Ill take it.
