OMG!! Poor mom!

My mother gave birth to all large babies, me included, but this one wins the prize!

Congratulations to the mother. I'm happy everything turned out okay.

A Utah mom has been shopping for larger diapers after giving birth to a 14-pound baby boy.
Sara Brandon gave birth to her son, Joel Brandon Jr., or "J.J.," by cesarean section last May and was shocked by his size, especially since her last ultrasound estimated his weight as closer to 11 pounds.
"When they stuck him on the scale he was 14 pounds even," Brandon told "The doctor said it was the biggest baby he had ever delivered."

Apparently this is extremely rare... I in 100,000!
This baby beat the odds at 14 lbs. exactly!

Barbieri said approximately one out of 1,000 babies could weigh 11-pounds, and one out of every 100,000 could weigh 14 pounds. A 14-pound baby, he said, is extremely rare, because usually a doctor will induce labor if a baby appears oversize.

My goodness that's a huge bundle of joy
, my twins were 12 pound combined and that was tough enough to lug a belly around that big.

I'm sure she will be compensated with lots if chunky cuddles from this 'little' fella. Glad all worked out but 14 pounds... OMG lol, poor women.

How does this kind of thing even happen? Did the mother eat wrong or something?

No, what a pregnate women eats or doesn't eat has pretty much no bearing on the size of a baby. Genetics can play a roll as well as some illnesses such as diabetes.

I've known women that have had terrible " morning sickness" and hardly eaten to have still grown very large babies. Or women that eat everything and still have small babies.

As it says in the link :

According to Dr. Robert Barbieri, chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, J.J. was more likely to be oversize because Brandon has type 1 diabetes.
"An interesting effect of insulin, if it's not taken in a sufficient amount, the glucose remains high, and the baby's glucose starts to rise," said Barbieri. "It's like giving the baby fertilizer and it grows very large."

P:S there is also a gestational type of diabetes that can show in the mother during the pregnancy and then resolve its self after birth.

Considering the effects, they shouldn't.
