Talkback: Is this the biggest pregnancy baby bump ever?


  • I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 44 years(since the age of 10) and I find it quite ridiculous that you say that Lara put on so much weight because she is 'Type 1 diabetic.' I have had 3 children, I put on 2 stone in weight & my babies(who are now aged 31, 28 & 24) weighed 6lb 4oz, 5lb 13oz & 5lb 13 & a half oz respectively. In fact I got a bit of a telling off when I had my first baby because she was considered 'too small' for a diabetic! My eldest was one day overdue, my second was 3 weeks early & because I had had 2 epidural c-sections, my son was born 9 days early by the same method. I feel that this is a bit of a careless observation on your part to say that being a diabetic is the reason Lara put on so much weight, yes I know diabetics can have big babies but if you take proper care of yourself and your diabetes this does not always have to be the case.
