Mom Gives Birth To A 13.5Lbs (6Kg) Baby, And Her Photos Become Internet Sensation

On May 15th, mother of four Chrissy Corbitt gave birth to her daughter Carleigh, who ended up to be quite a big of a bundle of joy. Literally.

“When the doctor was pulling her out of me I just start hearing them all laughing and excited in the operating room,” Chrissy told ABC News. “They were throwing out numbers and when they showed her to me and said 13.5, I couldn’t believe it. It looked like they pulled a toddler out of my belly. She’s so big.” Corbitt’s daughter Carleigh weighed 13 pounds and 5 ounces when she was born – that’s almost double the weight of an average newborn baby! “She’s like a 6-month-old baby,” Larry Corbitt said. “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.” To celebrate the birth of their daughter, parents Larry and Chrissy decided to have a sweet photoshoot with photographer Debbye Benson of Sweet Smiles Photography Studio. You can check out the pics below.

Whao! How could that be a surprise? In France, we do at least 3 or 4 ultrasounds to check the baby and they each time estimate the growth (weight and size). I had a gestational diabetes on my last pregnancy and in this case the baby's pancreas usually works a lot to normalize the mother's glycemy. This turn the baby in a kind of sugar pump and of course, the baby get overweight. Gestational diabetes is very common, whenever the mother's not fat or do eat much sugar. It's just that the glycemy is not always well regulates because of the pregnancy. All i had to do was to adapt my diet to the fact that my pancreas was lazy and watch my glycemy to avoid macrosomia for my baby.

I have gestational diabetes. I have an ultrasound twice a week. They are on top of it, making sure he is not getting too big.

I can't help it. 13 lbs 5 ounces is not 13.5 pounds. It's a little over thirteen and a quarter pounds. 13.5 lbs = 13 lbs 8 ounces as there are 16 ounces in a pound.

This reminds me of the difference between being 'involved' and being 'committed'. Her husband was involved, but she was definitely committed.
