While Nicolina Newcombe realized that the baby she was expecting was a little large and kicked hard, as her measurements were not out of the ordinary, neither she nor her doctors thought anything of it.
Then the day came when he arrived.
Named Tobias, he weighed an incredible 13 pounds and 7 ounces.
To put his weight in perspective, a typical baby weighs 7 to 8 pounds at birth and does not weigh what Tobias weight until they are around 6 months old.
What made Tobias’s weight even more incredible is that Nicolina measures a little under 5′ 9″. This makes his weight way off the chart for a woman Nicolina’s height.
She even gave birth naturally and without an epidural.
Nicolina says that she is glad that the doctors did not realize how big Tobias was going to be, because she thinks that they may not have let her give birth naturally if they did.
She also remarked that many people thought she was going to have twins and said that Tobias really is the size of two normal-sized babies.
The medical staff even nicknamed him “Hercules.”
