An Arlington baby broke hospital records, weighing nearly 15 pounds at birth. Baby boy Ali is a gift the Medlock family once thought theyd never receive. Now, Ali is nearly twice the size of an average newborn, weighing 14 pounds 13 ounces. He broke the record at Arlington Memorial Hospital. Ali was born via C-section. Jennifer said she had a very healthy pregnancy; however, Ali did spend a week in the NICU because his blood sugar and platelettes were low. It doesnt matter how big he is, Im so blessed, said Jennifer. Ali was a blessing in many ways for the Medlocks. Jennifer has severe polycystic ovarian syndrome.Doctors told them having a family would be a long shot. We tried anyway and prayed, she said.

Neither, he drove home...
I did. Six times.
Nice. She wont get much sympathy from my wife. Our last one was just under 13 lbs. he came to the world in the usual way, with no drugs.
There’s a well established link between maternal obesity and large birth weight babies.
Hope he doesn’t meet another guy in there who’s looking for his car keys.
Three here, 9-2; 9-8; 10-2 all normal deliveries. Wife said that was time to stop. lol No! those are lbs - ounces not lengths.
What’s the problem, everyone knows everything is bigger in Texas.
Awww, I’ll bet he was a beautiful baby, as was my roommate’s.
Hard to imagine carrying a 15-pound newborn, though.
I’d imagine it would be difficult. Even with just my 7-pounders, my belly looked a basketball every time. lol
Wouldn't surprise me, considering her other health issues.
” Yall freepers auta try it.”
A mighty nation has sprung from my loins.
Dad looks pretty hefty, not just the wife.
Why do overweight people tend to wear horizontal stripes? You rarely see them on thinner people.
Got 4. And you?
That gives new meaning to the term “anchor baby”.
