After 41 long weeks my client came in for an induction yesterday morning. Things picked up quickly and before I knew it, she was ready to push. I like to play a little game with the nurses and parents about guessing what the baby is going to weigh. I knew this was a big guy, so I was going as big as I ever have, 9 lbs. 3 oz. Her sister guessed 12 pounds and almost got kicked out of the delivery room for such an insane number. Both parents were about 9 pounds and our nurse weighed in a 7lbs.
Two hours later we were all told he was 10 pounds 13 ounces! When I got a hold of him, I knew I had never held a newborn that heavy before, but I was not prepared to hear almost 11 pounds!
Needless to say, dad has him on the fast track to the NFL!
