But DO remember that huge babies (anything over 9 lb.) ARE a risk factor
for Type 2 diabetes sometime down the road. I truly hope you never get
it, but do be sure to be checked regularly -- do it yourself
occasionally if necessary, because often, Type 2 isn't diagnosed until
the complications have already started.

I don't want to see those complications happen to you (even though the
PREFERRED outcome is that you never get diabetes at all!!!) 

Good luck, and take care of yourself!
