Reading though the conversations on Mumsnet, you occasionally come across an amazing feat of motherhood. I thought it might be interesting to collect all these stories together into a 'Mumsnet Book Thread of Records'!!!

Was your baby very tiny, or very large (mine was 10lb 4oz, but there are loads of bigger wrigglers out there!)?
Was your newborn 3 feet tall?
Was your baby born at 24 weeks?
Did you give birth in your early teens, or at 50+?
Were your babies born 9 months apart, or did you leave a 20 year gap?
Do you have quintuplets? sextuplets?
Have you given birth 37 times? etc..etc...

Come on, lets hear your stories about all the amazing mums and babies out there!

I'll not compete for the saggiest competition, but possibly most displayed as after 7 months plus of breastfeeding I feel that one or the other has now been viewed by most of the population (or at least that's how it feels!) grin

My ds was 10lb 6 and was born after a 2 hour 47 minute labour - he arrived 26 minutes after we reacher the hospital. Is this a record?

Weegle Mon 18-Aug-08 17:33:57

DS was 12lb 12oz - I don't think I've yet come across anyone on MN who has had one bigger, but I'd love to know if someone has!

derelicte Mon 18-Aug-08 17:36:35

I was very disappointed when I found out that my 10lb 9oz-er wasn't the biggest on MN, by a long way.

[must try harder next time]

MehgaLegs Mon 18-Aug-08 17:36:44

Wince at weegle. Mine were big DS1 10lbs10 but beaten by 10lb 15 DS4

DS1 was 61cm long.

cocolepew Mon 18-Aug-08 17:36:58

I was the sickest person in the World EVER when pregnant.

PinkyDinkyDooToo Mon 18-Aug-08 17:37:06

DS2 was born after 1hr 45 mins of labour but I'm sure someone can beat that.
