Woman gives birth to son weighing nearly 14 pounds
Doctors, California woman surprised as newborn boy weighs in at nearly 14 pounds
By The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO (AP) ' A Southern California woman says doctors predicted she would give birth to a big baby boy, but nobody was prepared for just how big.

The North County Times reports Saturday (http://bit.ly/Amd2Wv ) that Jayden Sigler weighed in at 13 pounds, 14 ounces, when he was delivered by cesarean section Thursday.

His mother, Cynthia Sigler of Vista, says it took a photo of the scale readout to convince her cousin that the birth weight wasn't a joke.



The mother says doctors initially estimated that Jayden would weigh about 9 pounds. By March 6, the estimate jumped to about 11 pounds.

Dr. Jerald White says Jayden, at nearly 14 pounds, is the biggest baby he's delivered since his career began in 1961.
