Attn: My Pregnant Friends; RE: Why you should be grateful today

Jordan, Courtney, Pepper, Julianne, Bek, and others of you who may be with child,

Please, today, take time to give thanks that--more than likely--your baby will not look like this upon immediate exit from your body.



Your friend in medium-to-low birthweights,

Emily

I was going to make a statement about her probably having had gestational diabetes, but the article actually points it out. Brazil has one of the highest c-section rates in the world.

Wow, I love my 7 and 8 pounders.

Courtney said...

That is crazy. That baby weighs more than my girls combined weights.

Abby said...

Oh my.

*JULIA* said...

Whats wrong with really big babies???

elizabeth said...

My husband was born at 12 pounds.

I hear that's hereditary.

Yikes.

Makes my firstborn 10 pounder look like a lightweight.

Alice said...

Wow! I delivered two 10-pounders (my first and last) but that's nothing in comparison! Whew!

This is one category where I wouldn't want to break any world records.

Jord said...

Oh my goodness....that is crazy! I was thinking this baby may be big (8 pounds) but now that sounds like nothing. Thanks for the pre-birthing perspective.
