Chrissy and Larry Corbit were so excited after finding out that they were expecting a baby. But, as time passed by, Chrissy’s stomach grew bigger than any other pregnancy. The thought of having twins crossed their minds or maybe something was seriously wrong with the pregnancy.
Despite their concerns, ultrasound pictures confirmed only one baby was present and all signs indicated a healthy pregnancy. Doctors concluded that her massive stomach meant the child Chrissy was expecting was going to be big!
Thankfully, Chrissy’s pregnancy went off without any problem and she gave birth via C-section. But the moment Chrissy looked at her little girl, something unbelievable met her eye. Instead of a large newborn like she expected, a toddler-like child stared back at her.
She told Inside Edition,
“When they held her around the curtain for me I just couldn’t believe how big she was. I felt like I was looking at a toddler, I was like oh my God, she’s gonna walk to the nursery.”
As soon nurses cleaned up the baby and checked her for immediate health issues, they rushed her over to the scale. This baby was one of the biggest they’ve ever seen — and by the size of Chrissy’s stomach before, it was safe to assume that she weighed well over 10 pounds. Sure enough, 13 pounds five ounces popped up on the scale’s screen.
What a massive newborn! Nurses couldn’t get ordinary newborn diapers to fit — they had to go several sizes up to find a diaper that worked. When Mom and Dad brought Carleigh home they had to ditch the newborn onesies and buy clothing for a nine-month-old child! Learn more about Carleigh’s big welcome into the world in the video below.
