Christine Corbitt, who gave birth to the biggest baby her doctor has ever delivered, says she is done with having babies. Her first two babies were 9 and 10 lbs. But her third set a new record and was born at 13 lbs and 5 ounces.
Her stomach was abnormally large before birth but she was expecting that her baby would be around 10 lbs.
Corbitt told Action News Jax, “Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. She’s just so huge.”
She had no idea that the baby who the parents named, Carleigh Brooke Corbitt would be so big.
Corbitt remembers the day of her delivery. The doctors laughed and said that “it looked like they pulled a toddler out of my belly.”
“I’ve had nine and 10-pound babies and I figured maybe she’d be 10 pounds. I’d have another 10-pound baby, but she was a surprise,” Corbitt said.
And that’s not the only part to be surprised about. Carleigh could have been even bigger had she been born on the due date. She actually was born 6 days earlier. Her dad, Larry Corbitt, reveals that their infant daughter wears size 3 diapers.
Carleigh is also the biggest baby that Dr. Eric Edelenbos has ever delivered in his life and even he was shocked when he saw the baby while delivering.
“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,’” Edelenbos said.
The NICU kept Carleigh under observation for longer than usual to check her blood sugar levels.
Carleigh was released when all her tests come clear.
“I’m done. I’m done. No more babies for me,” Corbitt says with a smile.
While a baby of this size is rare to have but it is not unheard of.
One Twitter user said, “Congrats,to you All. Shes beautiful!! By the way my baby brother weighed exactly the same!!! In 1974. God bless you.”
