As Christine Corbitt neared the end of her pregnancy, it was undeniable how large her stomach was.
Having previously given birth to her two children- one weighing 9lbs and the other 10lbs, Corbitt expected her new baby would weigh about 10lbs.
“Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was, ‘Oh my gosh. She’s just so huge,” Corbitt told ActionNewsJax. Corbitt got the surprise of her life when she gave birth to Carleigh Brooke on May 15, and she weighed a whopping 13lbs, 5oz. Corbitt’s doctor, Dr. Eric Edelenbos said it was the largest baby he has ever delivered!
“When the baby was coming out, I was like, ‘Is this baby ever going to end?’ Everybody in the room kind of just stopped during the delivery and was like, ‘Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh,’” Dr. Edelenbos said. Following her birth, Carleigh had to stay in the NICU for a while until her blood sugar levels were checked and were all clear.
“It looked they pulled a toddler out of my belly. She’s so big,” Corbitt shared with ABC News.
She continued, “When the doctor was pulling her out of me I just start hearing them all laughing and excited in the operating room. They were throwing out numbers and when they showed her to me and said 13.5 I couldn’t believe it.”
The Corbitts celebrated their massive new miracle baby with a photo shoot by photographer Debbye Benson of Sweet Smiles Photography Studio. “She’s like a 6 month old baby,” said Larry Corbitt.
“We even contacted Pampers and Huggies to help us out because everything we got to prepare is just out the door. None of it fits. She’s in size 3 diapers. The clothes she had on yesterday was a 9-month outfit. She’s huge.”
Today, both mother and baby are doing great and Larry told ABC News his wife is a trooper for everything she has gone through. As far as having more kids, Corbitt says she is done.
