    I was 11 pounds 3 oz. when I was born, and my mom had me naturally...I can't imagine something that big coming out of that small of a hole. Her doctor never said one word to her about me being big, but the instructor at her birthing class said she'd have a big baby and she was right. I wonder if this lady had gestational diabetes?!

    My grandfather was 14 pounds. My great had a bunch of kids but not all lived. Will never know the true story on any of it. I think diabetes played a larger part than the family realized.

    most of these woman do have gestational diabetes that is not diagnosed really, i sometimes work on the labor and delivery unit and i have seen a baby that was 12 pounds and we were all holding him, we couldnt get over how big he was and so dag on cute, he looked like a mini-man, it was so funny.....

    Is gestational diabetes the cause of the kids coming out like tanks ? If so why?

    Thank you. I'll hang up and listen. ;)

    :D Mini-man. That reminds me of a few years back when I was looking at some pictures of babies who were in a college workshop with my grandson. There were girls and boys, but I was looking at the little boys thinking..."I wonder if that is what he will look like when he's old!" I mean...there were a couple of those cute little guys that I could just about picture in a geriatric chair 70 years from now...bald, toothless, grinning or grumpy...LOL!

    I am glad this woman had a c-section...I can't even imagine what it must have been like for her during her last few months carrying him!! :eek: Bless her heart and best wishes to both of them.

    From webmd.com:
    I've also heard that if you have it during pregnancy it increases your risk for getting it later in life.

    I had two. One at 8'8 and one at 8' 5. I weighed 110 pounds when I got pregnant. No diabetes at that time no clue now.

    Yes, Tricia. I had it. I think it's because the fetuses are feeding off the excess sugar why they gain so much. I was tested and was closely monitored. Had to check my blood sugars every 4 hours. Blew my blood sugars twice on McDonald's and they put me on Insulin. My daughter was born at 6lbs, 10oz, and I was only 5.5 when I was born. Both my parents are Type 2, Adult Onset Diabetes, so yes I am at future risk for Diabetes.
