17 lb Baby Born to a Russian Woman

Behold the 17 lb (7.75 kg) baby born to a Siberian woman in Russia!

A Siberian woman who gave birth to her 12th child - doing more than her fair share to stem Russia's population decline - was stunned to find that little Nadia weighed in at a massive 17.1 lb (7.75kg). [...]

"We were all simply in shock," said Nadia's mother, Tatyana Barabanova, 43. "What did the father say? He couldn't say a thing - he just stood there blinking."

"I ate everything, we don't have the money for special foods so I just ate potatoes, noodles and tomatoes," she told the reporter, adding that all her previous babies had weighed more than 5 kg.

Nope. What the baby is suffering from was its mother's out of control gestational diabetes. I hope they keep a close watch on the baby's blood glucose levels.
