That is most likely the first thought that comes to the mind of any woman who has given birth and is reading this. We know the labor in itself is intense, not to mention the work it takes to push even an average-sized baby out. So imagine this mother who shocked the medical officials in the Birth Center at Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Washington, when she pushed out a baby that weighs 15 lbs.
Needless to say, they couldn’t believe their eyes.
On average, newborns weigh about 7-1/2 pounds at birth. And although Yessica Ortiz Delgado had given birth to two children who were larger than average, even she was surprised that her newest bundle of joy came in at this enormous weight, according to The Inquisitr.
“We deliver babies of all sizes, but it is not every day that we deliver and care for a baby as large as Francisco,” says Barbara Connet, who is the director at a Birth Center that delivers more than 500 babies a year.Continue reading →
*I know. That’s a strange question to ask in the headline of a story, but the video is going to be much worse – especially if you’re squeamish.
Yep. That was your warning.
But seriously, did you know that there are people living with a condition called Myiasis? It’s a parasitic infection of fly larva, and you know what a fly is before it becomes a fly right? Well THAT could very well be making a home up your nasal passage.
Still can’t grasp what the heck I’m talking about?
OK, let me say it straight out then. There is a video where a doctor in India did an endoscopic procedure on a patient that shows him removing LIVE MAGGOTS from the man’s nose.
*There is a god in the Hindu faith that was born with 8 limbs.
Now there may be 2.
A boy born to a family in India has been named, “God Boy” because he was born with 4 arms and 4 legs. But the birth has caused problems in the local village where the people believe he is a reincarnation of a god.
Locals in the village of Baruipur, east India believe the baby is the reincarnation of Hindu God Brahma, a deity that is also depicted with eight limbs. People are traveling from far and wide to visit the child with hopes that they will be endowed with good fortune. Continue reading →
*Hey, I’m the first one to realize that one person’s weird is someone else’s just another day in the neighborhood.
But some stuff is definitely worth sharing.
First up, this Chinese man suffered severe nasal trauma due to a traffic accident last year. Somehow, this led surgeons to work on the development of a new nose for the man. But why was the decision made to grown that nose out of — of all areas, his forehead.
*There is little anyone can do to calm the sorrow a family member feels when their loved one passes. The outpouring of love from everyone is appreciated, but there is nothing anyone can do or say to make you feel better.Except, oops! We made a mistake. Your loved one is NOT dead after all.This is, basically, what happened to Bogumila Kolkiewicz, the niece of Janina Kolkiewicz, who was found on November 6 lying on the floor of her home in Ostrow Lubielski, a town in eastern Poland, by her niece. The 91-year-old appeared to have no pulse and her breathing had stopped. She called Wieslaw Czyz, their local doctor, who pronounced the woman dead.Dr Czyz said: “I have 28 years of experience. There was no pulse, no sign of breathing and no heart rate.
“Her eyes were open but they were not responsive to light.
“So I wrote the death certificate.”
It was then that the body was taken to a local morgue and the bereaved family began to make arrangements for the funeral.
So you can imagine the shock of the morgue staff when 11 hours later they saw her body bag beginning to move.
*You know that technology has infinite possibilities, right? And it doesn’t just stop at software. Now, it is being designed to change the way men and women interact. In other words, based on developments in technology, sexual intercourse between a man and a woman may no longer be necessary – to make a baby, that is.
Here are five different technologies that are changing the way procreation happens.
Birth control shots for men.
1. Beginning in 2015 your doctor can provide birth control shots for men. The shot, called a Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance, is injected into a man’s scrotum and as the name suggests, it is completely reversible. Other countries have used this form of birth control for quite some time and it has shown just as effective (if not more so) than women’s contraceptives.
Eggs than never go bad.
2. That’s right!Ladies, never worry about your biological time clock again. Now, by freezing your eggs, you can use them when you get good and ready and the unfreezing process is simple and then the eggs are implanted. The only thing is, its very expensive and there is no guarantee that the egg will be fertilized once it is unfrozen (the eggs are viable but it all depends on the sperm).Continue reading →
*Its probably safe to assume that most of us never even realized bras came in sizes like 36NNN; but apparently they do – even if they have to be custom made. Just ask Dr. Franklin Rose, a plastic surgeon who was recently in charge of performing a breast reduction for a woman who carried this measurement.
Kerisha Mark, a school social worker, suffered from a medical condition that made her breasts so incredibly large that she suffered pain, embarrassment, and physical hardships because of it.
But on her 40th birthday, Mark decided she had to treat herself to something truly special; and she allowed Eyewitness News cameras into the operating room for her life-altering surgery, where more than 15 pounds of tissue was removed from her breasts. Continue reading →
