Oh my gosh. Could you even imagine?? Mine was 9lb9oz, and a few hospital staff members said that he was the biggest they had seen. That's almost half the size!

Is it the world record?

Ouch, my uterus just twinged! imagine the back pain??? The mother had GD, it's hard to believe that a baby can get this big in utero!

I am thinking I read there was a 23lb baby when I was pregnant last time.

Here is an answer I found online: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_world_record_for_the_largest_newborn_baby

It is funny after reading that I think according to EU law, those babies could have gone straight to a forward facing car seat because they are over 9KG:eek:

Yeah, the mom had GD and the dad was like 6 foot 7!

Biggest baby EVER (the 23 lber) died after 11 hours Sad His parents had giantism.

That's insane. He is the size of most 7 and 8 month olds. I am still surprised the doctors let the baby bake in there that long knowing it was going to be that big...

when my oldest 2 were in the NICU they had a baby born that was just over 12 lbs......he sure looked alittle silly in there amongst 2-4 lb babies...

Holy moly that's insane! I was 10 lbs when I was born, and my mother is 5'2, and weighed 100lbs when she got pregnant with me. Needless to say, I almost killed her! My biggest baby was 8 lbs, 7 oz... that was plenty big for me lol!
