Super Mom Gives Birth and Serves Dinner Hours Later

Do you think you’re a Super Woman? Here’s a test – could you deliver a baby and serve a turkey dinner 2 – 3 hours later? Paula Thomas shown with her new daughter Lexi accomplished this feat. Can you believe it!  This lady put the Christmas turkey in the oven while having contractions.  When the contractions were 3 minutes apart, at 12:35 p.m., she asked her husband to take her to the hospital.  She delivered a beautiful 7 lb. 7 oz. baby girl, Lexi, at 1:45 p.m., and by 3:00 p.m. she was home basting the turkey.  Now who’s super woman?  She gets my vote. 

Paula has 3 other children, Caitlin and Gabby, both six, and Reece who is three.  Paula said, “I really wanted my Christmas dinner – I was starving.” LMAO!  After 8 hours of labor and giving birth to a 7 lb. 13 oz baby girl, I was stitched from one end to the other.  I sat on a doughnut for weeks.  I didn’t want to walk let alone fix a turkey dinner.  I was too busy moaning over my breast feeling like bricks and trying to figure out how I was going to raise my infant daughter. The only person getting food in my house was my daugher you can believe that shit. 

This lady gives super woman a new meaning.  I hope mom and baby are doing well, but there is no turkey on the face of the earth that would have made me leave my hospital bed and new daughter.  My husband would have been at my mom’s wrapping up a plate of turkey and the trimmings so he could bring it to me at the hospital, lol.  He wouldn’t have seen a golden brown turkey on a platter or a heaping helping of mashed potatoes and gravy for months.

Woman are such amazing creatures.  I may be a little biased because I am one, but seriously we hold it down.  There is nothing that we can’t do, and we will be running this country in the near future.  What man could accomplish this?  I love what Barack Obama said about Michelle Obama, “My wife does everything that I do except she does it in high heels”.  I love it.  What do you think of this super mom?  We would love to hear from you.



  1. Such act like this is a very good thing to do. Parents should also encourage their children to help you doing this kind of stuff in order for you elders to establish a good example to your young ones.

  2. I would call her nuts for doing that.  I just got home from having my second baby (Monday night 10:15pm).  It was an easy labor at first, but ended in lots of stitches (including several internal ones and we didn't have surgery, so you know that's fancy) and he came out looking pretty bad as well with all the facial bruising. Good old pushing while he was behind the pelvic bone.

    Needless to say, the only thing going in the oven was the frozen pizza, and everything for the rest of the month will be freezer meals I made up in December. Plus if my family expected to see me and get served dinner right after having the baby, I would probably stop talking to them immediately.

  3. Not sure I'd call her super woman…sounds like a strong need to perform/give/whatever. I feel a little sorry for her. After giving birth is DEFINATELY a time a woman can be pampered and served a bit. I feel sorry that she felt she still had to take care of others and did not deserve to get a break.

    (couldn't someone else baste the darned turkey while she relaxed a bit?)

  4. Yow, I hope I've raised my three daughters to know better than that. Shouldn't giving birth be reason enough to lay down for a while? I mean I like food as much as the next guy but there's something to be said for letting others take care of you for a change.

  5. this is why I wanted a natural birth and not another c-section….but it didn't work out that way.  I have heard similar stories to hers and if I hadn't been sliced in 2 I could have been walking around too 🙂

  6. Hell no! I wouldn't leave the hospital for turkey!

    This kind of makes me sad, I think she should have took the time to rest and recuperate, and simply enjoy her new baby.

  7. We always leave as soon as we can get away with it, but wow, that's crazy!

  8. Wow that's crazy. I agree with Cat, I wonder how safe it was to have the baby home so quick. We didn't leave the hospital for 2 days after I had my son lol.

  9. Man, she is a trooper! That's mind boggling, but then again, I had 2 c-sections so I have no idea what it's like for a "natural" birth. My girlfriend was up and walking and itching to get out of the hospital a mere hour after giving birth. I just can't even relate to that.

    However, I was out shopping at Babies 'R Us for new bottles 4 days after my last c-section. Does that count for something?

  10. Wow, I cant imagine doing that! I know I'd stay at the hospital overnight and have someone deliver food to ME.

  11. Wow. Super Mom is definitely a term for it. I milked the whole "I just had a baby" laziness LOL

  12. Wow..that's amazing!  She gets my vote for super mom.  My family starved for a week when I had my girls!

  13. It's actually pretty reasonable, especially for a 2nd or 3rd, etc baby.

    After I had my girls I was ready to go home hours after they were born but the hospital wouldn't release us for 24. When Emma was born I really didn't have any lasting pains other than hip soreness and the post-partum cramping.

    I do admire her dedication to the holiday but wonder how safe it was to have the baby home that soon.
