A Mother Gives Birth To A 13.5 Pounds Baby

Chrissy Corbitt is a wife and mother of four beautiful children from Keystone Heights, Florida. She has the appearance of an ordinary person, but has actually ʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ ʀᴇᴄᴏʀᴅs after giving birth to her fourth child, who weighed in at a whopping 13 lbs 5 oz. The birth took place in 2017, and it’s still difficult for Chrissy to believe just how different her fourth ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ was from her first three.

Her fourth ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ started out just like first three. As she breezed through the first trimester, she and her husband began to notice, however, that her belly was growing fast, and at an ᴀʟᴀʀᴍɪɴɢ rate. To top everything off, Chrissy was even diagnosed with ɢᴇsᴛᴀᴛɪᴏɴᴀʟ ᴅɪᴀʙᴇᴛᴇs. When asked about the ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ, Chrissy’s husband, Larry mentioned, “it was if she had an enormous beach ball for a belly and it just kept growing and growing.” To try to make light of the matter, both Chrissy and Larry joked about how they had a 10 pound baby on their hands. Little did they know that she was going to weigh even more than that!


When it was clear that a natural birth was out of the question, Chrissy opted for a c-section a week before her duedate. Baby Carleigh was born on May 15 at Orange Park Medical Center. Chrissy said:” It looked they ᴘᴜʟʟ ed a toddler out of my belly. She’s so big. When the doctor was ᴘᴜʟʟ ing her out of me I just start hearing them all laughing and excited in the ᴏᴘᴇʀᴀᴛɪɴɢ ʀᴏᴏᴍ. They were throwing out numbers and when they showed her to me and said 13.5 I couldn’t believe it.”

Larry said:” She’s like a 6 month old baby. 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. Carleigh even arrived a week earlier than her due date. Her due date wasn’t until May 20 or 21. She could’ve been a way bigger baby than what she was. It was crazy. Chrissy wasn’t gaining any weight for the past 3 weeks of her ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ. It was just Carleigh gaining weight.”

Carleigh, wasn’t only the biggest baby that her pediatrician, Dr. Edelenbos, had delivered, but Carliegh’s birthweight even broke records. 13lbs 5oz isn’t small in the slightest, especially for a newborn baby. Needless to say, Chrissy and Larry should have waited on buying clothes and diapers,  when they got home from the hospital, they found out quickly that nothing fit her! They’ll be prepared for next time, though. If there is one!
