In brief: Macrosomia

As the term implies, macro, "big", soma, (carisoprodol) "body", the first thing you can see is a very large baby, usually larger than 8 pounds 8 ounces.
The first symptoms we observe in a macrocosmic baby is jitteriness, this is almost always due to low blood glucose levels, next we may observe clonus, which is due to a low ionized calcium level, and third we may observe jaundice, due elevated bilirubin levels.
