A Southern California woman says doctors predicted she would give birth to a big baby boy, but nobody was prepared for just how big.
Jayden Sigler weighed in at 13 pounds, 14 ounces, when the healthy boy was delivered Thursday by cesarean section, the North County Times reported Saturday.
His mother, Cynthia Sigler of Vista, said that her immediate reaction was: 'How'd he fit?'
