What was your newborn's head circumference?

Informal poll time! My little guy's head was 15 inches around at birth. He doesn't look particularly large-headed though. How big is/was your baby?

I actually have no idea how large Dylan's head was. I think once it gets beyond a certain size, it's just all bloody HUGE!

13" with a tiny bit of molding - I thought this was big but based on other responses maybe I should consider myself lucky?

My midwives use the metric system (I'm in Italy) and my son's head circumference was 33 cm. I believe that is 13 inches. His head was slightly molded.
