i have a cousin that is 7 years old and weighs 105 lbs. the problem that we have is that her stomach from the under her breast and down to her pelvic area is very large and hard. you can't even grab the skin it's so hard. it's very embarrassing to her but, the dr. says that's normal in some children. i just can't believe that.

  • We have a 16 year old (step-daughter) at home. She looks pregnant but she isn't. She gets ridiculed about being pregnant. The doctors can't find any problems and her biological mother has the same problem...
