A woman nine months pregnant had no idea that her birth would end with a surprise of such proportions. Doctors had estimated that her baby weighed 3 kilograms, but their measurements were misleading as the girl, who was named Annie, was a lot larger than predicted. The case took place in Great Britain.
The baby girl was much more developed than the doctors who had monitored Grace throughout her pregnancy had predicted. The woman was scheduled for a ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ at 37 weeks of pregnancy. Probably if she had waited until her daughter came, almost 40 weeks, the girl could have been even bigger than that.
The doctors were amazed when, during the ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ, they saw how big the baby was.
“I knew it was going to be big, but I would have said maybe 4 kilograms at most. They put her in my arms and brought the scales to weigh her right in front of me. I started laughing because I was in shock, and the team of doctors and nurses who helped me deliver said it was the biggest baby they had ever seen,” Grace recalled, just a few months after giving birth.
The baby girl named Annie, who weighed more than 5 kilograms, is the biggest baby born in 2021 to date.
Grace also shared the reaction of her husband, who was amazed when he found out how many kilograms their little one weighed. He was at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey, where Grace gave birth, and was extremely surprised to see her.
The man couldn’t believe that their baby was so big and that the newborn clothes they had prepared would not fit Annie at all.
“He also knew that the ultrasounds we had done might not be accurate and he thought he would weigh somewhere around 4 kilograms. We were both laughing and looking at her. We donated all the newborn clothes we had bought to the hospital,” Grace said of her husband.
Grace also has a son named Oliver, 10, and another little boy named Albert, 6, at home. The woman recalled that her boys had a normal birth weight of around 3 kilograms.
She said, “My bump showed a lot sooner than with my boys but I had lost nine stone before falling pregnant with her. I kept wondering if it could be twins until I had my scan which confirmed there was just one in there!”
Currently, Grace can declare herself a happy mother, having her arms full with her three children.
“I’m definitely not having any more children. I don’t want to think about how much the next one will weigh and I want to lose weight, returning to my old weight,” said the new mother.
