I think the American weight 13 lb, 13 oz, fits better in this case. Double 13,.. I wouldn't want to be the unlucky ducky laying that egg!! A human dodo.

Six hours is a long time for labor with your second child. And a baby weighing almost 14 pounds without an epidural? After 4 of my own (all under 9 lbs), I think she's either a bit crazy or a lot masochistic.
Good luck to her feeding those two boys as they grow!

I hate stories about fat babies!
A woman's vagina is too precious a thing to be all fkd up by a screaming gooey self absorbed baby.

Big deal, I can think of at least three babies around here that weigh more than 200 pounds each. One of them weighs a LOT more.......

I wouldn't consider 6 hours a long labor ~ even for a second child. Especially considering the size of this newborn. I am a Neonatal nurse and have personal knowledge of the length of time women are in labor. Having taken care of hundreds of babies (literally, not figuratively) over the years (I work in a hospital that delivers more than 250 babies a month), I have seen labors be as short as 20-30 minutes to 2 days (before a doctor intervenes). You must remember this though, even though one may feel labor pains for only a short time, there very well could have been many contractions that simply went unnoticed hours prior to any pain being felt. That is something I experienced firsthand with my third child. I went for my regular doctor visit (being just under 37 weeks gestation), and my doctor informed me upon examination that I was past 6 cm dilation. I had nary a pain at that point and it wasn't until several hours later that I felt ANYTHING that could be considered "labor pains". So, while you may have experienced relatively short labors, that is not necessarily the norm. Each woman is different, each baby is different, and each labor is different. Having more children than I can count on one hand, I know this to be completely true.

This lady may have to upgrade her husband's unit to accomodate the new saltwater taffy looking mess down there.
