    Sixteen pounds. Well I guess since c-section was planned, there were no pains.

    Nurses immediately put him in youth soccer (lol).

    True dat. And I didn't even get a local anesthetic.

    Boom did fee me ice chips, though.

    If Pete Carroll were still at USC, the kid would have been offered a scholarship already.

    About a month ago we had 16 pound some odd ounce baby and I live in BFE. Not sure why this one got national pub.

    With a kid nicknamed "Moose," let's hope he wasn't born with a full rack of antlers for mom's sake.

    That story is bullshit.
    Gestational diabetes doesn't lead to higher birth weights. Not being in control of your diabetes does.
    The woman who gave birth probably had high sugars the entire pregnancy and didn't give a fuck.
    That woman needed to keep her sugars somewhere between 50-80 (normal is 80-120) in order to keep the baby's weight down. How do I know?
    Mrs. Rhody and I are expecting in three weeks. She's a type 1 diabetic and we're not having a 16 lb. baby - although measured at 9 lbs. today, we'll probably take her out of the oven shortly. She kept her sugars below 80 and when she was getting flaky at work, her doctor pulled her out and said her new job was to sit around the house and be low all day. It took some time getting used to, but she's done a damn good job - unlike this woman, who put her child's life at risk.
