Holy cow. Have you heard about the British mom who gave birth to a 15-pound, 7-ounce baby boy a few weeks ago? No, I'm not kidding. Much to his parents' surprise, baby George King made his entrance into the world weighing in at a whopping 15 pounds, 7 ounces -- and he's believed to be the second largest baby delivered vaginally in the U.K.
Whoops! I probably should've mentioned that part first -- George's mom, Jade, gave birth to him the old-fashioned way. As in she pushed him out -- all 15 pounds, 7 ounces of him.
As you will hear in this video clip, no one had any idea how large "little" George was until the birth was well underway -- so it turned into a pretty scary ordeal.
What a miracle that he is ok! I can't even imagine how scared Jade must have been -- and I still can't seem to get past the fact that she gave birth to a baby that big naturally.
To put things into perspective on what pushing out an almost-16-pound child must have felt like, here are a few comparisons of other things that weigh that much.
Three bags of flour or sugar
Two human heads
Two gallons of milk
Three standard-sized coffee makers
Four small laptop computers
A small flat-screen TV
Five boxes of wine
Three 2-liter bottles of soda
A bag of dog food
A small dog
Five human brains
Two full-term newborns (duh)
Wow. Using those examples to form a visual picture of how that delivery went down really takes Jade's ordeal to a whole new level.
How big is your baby expected to be at birth?
