In my husband's family, 8 lbs is the norm, and I personally know four women (at least) who have had at least one 12+ lb baby. All vaginally. MIL's first--FIRST!!!--was 5 kilos. That's 11 lbs. That is nearly twice what my mom had for her first baby, though MIL is much bigger boned than my mom. I voted "10+" because I know a lot of women that have eight or nine pound babies, but all via c-section because the doctors don't believe it's possible to birth a 10 lb baby.
