Teacher gives birth to 13-pound baby naturally: I thought the scale was broken

Mississippi mom Lauren Flaugher thought the scale, which only went up to 12 pounds, was broken when a midwife told her that her son, Finn, was too big to be weighed just after being born.

Coming in at 13 pounds, the newborn is ready to take on the world! Flaugher says she and her husband knew Finn would be big when a midwife took measurements at 20 weeks but they thought he'd be 10 pound max!
