Woman gave birth to a baby boy by c-section; doctors left screaming in shock after seeing the newborn
A woman in the US recently gave birth to a baby that was enormous, weighing over 14 pounds—double the weight of the average newborn.
The woman’s water broke while she was with her husband at the doctor’s office, so she had no choice but to deliver their child early through a C-section. The doctors couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the baby. The clothes that were prepared for the newborn obviously didn’t quite fit since the baby weighed over 14 pounds, so the family brought clothes that are designed for six-month-olds.
“Finnley was a little celebrity at the hospital. Nurses and doctors were non-stop talking about him,” his mum, Cary, said.
“As soon as they pulled him out, they were like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s huge!’ Everybody was freaking out, like, ‘I’ve never seen a baby that big, I can’t believe it.’ So perfect and round in every way. He’s definitely my squishy little honey bear.”
Not only did the family need to go out and buy bigger clothes for their new arrival right away, but his nappies had to be specially ordered in size two because the hospital only carried up to size one.
Finnley was the third of his siblings to be delivered by the same doctor, and is reportedly the biggest baby delivered by the doctor in 27 years.
“They were born at (8 pounds) and (11 pounds), but Finnley took the lead,” Cary said.
But the mother says she would do it all over again to receive her ‘blessing’.
After suffering from 19 miscarriages as a result of blood clotting disorders and fibroids, it was hard for the mom to leave Finnley in the NICU for eight days, but the family is now happily reunited at home.
“He is worth every ounce of pain, blood, and tears shed,” said Cary, “He is such a good sweet baby. I am so grateful everything ended on such a great positive side.”
