Meet Bigest Newborn Couldn’t Even Do Up Her Newborn Clothes
A MUM was left “sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ” after giving birth to an 11lb 5oz baby – the biggest born at her hospital this year.He like size of a toddler, he was triple the size of other newborns & needed clothes for nine-month-olds.
Grace, 38, from Berkshire, said her ᴀᴅᴏʀᴀʙʟᴇ daughter Annie was estimated to weigh 8lb 13oz, but was a lot larger than predicted. Speaking to Fabulous, proud mum Grace said Annie arrived four months ago by planned C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ at 37 weeks.
The full-time mum said: “ She was placed in my arms and they brought the scales over to weigh her next to me. I just kept laughing, I was in total shock and the team who was in sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ with me said it was the biggest baby some of them had ever delivered. She is also the biggest baby born so far this year at the hospital.”
Grace said her partner and hospital staff at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey, were both amazed when they realised how much Annie weighed.
She said: “We were all surprised when she went on the scales. She’s just beautiful. My partner was just gobsmacked, he knows growth sᴄᴀɴs can be a bit out so guessed that she’d actually be about 8lb 12ozs. We both kept laughing and just looking at her. We donated all her newborn clothes to the hospital and as you can see, we couldn’t even do up the top popper.”
Grace is also mum to Oliver, who is 10 and Albert, who is six, and said they were born much lighter at 8lb 10ozs and 8lb 4ozs. She said that her previous two births had been ᴇᴍᴇʀɢᴇɴᴄʏ C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴs due to failed inductions, so had planned Annie’s C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ in advance. Grace insists that she has her hands full with three kids, and Annie will be her last.
