As it turns out, her bundle was actually was the largest newborn Dr. Eric Edelenbos has ever delivered.
“When the baby was coming out, I was like, ‘Is this baby ever going to end?’ Everybody in the room kind of just stopped during the delivery and was like, ‘Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh,’” he said.
“I’ve had nine- and 10-pound babies and I figured maybe she’d be 10 pounds. I’d have another 10-pound baby, but she was a surprise,” Christine added.
Tipping the scales at 13 pounds, 5 ounces, Carleigh had to stay in the NICU for a bit while her blood sugar levels were checked.
The experience was enough for Christine and now the shop is closed.
“I’m done. I’m done. No more babies for me,” she said with a smile.
