Mom: 'It looked like they pulled a toddler out of my belly'

Mom: 'It looked like they pulled a toddler out of my belly'

"No more babies for me".

Chrissy Corbitt knew her belly was big but she was still surprised by a 6kg baby.

Baby Carleigh Brooke Corbitt was born last month, weighing in at 13 pounds, 5 ounces.

Chrissy Corbitt, from Florida, US, gave birth to her fourth child Carleigh on 15 May 2017 via caesarean section.

Babies that are this big are also typically born to women with gestational diabetes (a form of diabetes women sometimes develop during pregnancy), which Chrissy says she had. "Are there two of them?'" Both mom and dad fell in love. Her ob-gyn later told her that Carleigh was the biggest baby he had ever delivered. She's already in size 3 diapers.

Edelenbos said Carleigh is the largest baby he has delivered in his career.

The Florida woman said no more babies for her after the extra-large delivery. She arrived a week earlier than her due date, ABC reported, which means that had she arrived in time she would have weighed 14 pounds - the same weight as the heaviest baby born in the United States this year. "It's been a great experience and I can't wait to look back on this and share it with her to show her she became a celebrity overnight".

"She's just filled with rolls".

BTW: Chrissy doesn't plan to have any more children-her husband says she had her tubes tied after Carleigh's birth.

Although the parents were over the moon for their healthy, gorgeously chubby girl, they had a problem: None of the clothes and diapers they bought in preparation were going to fit Carleigh.

Twenty-seven percent of her body was covered in wounds after a fire ravaged her kitchen.
