Mum Shocked After Giving Birth A Baby Girl
Jade Smith, 22, gave birth to her firstborn Paisley Jade West on August 2 2021 at Nottingham City Hospital via a c-section. The bigest baby at the hospital. She was shocked about it.
Right from the moment when the pregnant belly has just “paved”, the mother must have heard many predictions about the fetus based on the shape of the abdomen. It is not clear what the truth is, but looking at the size of the pregnant belly, the mother can try to ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsᴇ her own health and giới tính and weight for baby.
Along with the development of the fetus, the mother’s pregnant belly will also grow over time. Usually, in the first 2 weeks, the fetus is still very small, so it must be very observant to the mother to be able to recognize the change in the size of her abdomen. Until about the 12th week of pregnancy, when the uterus grows, beyond the pelvic cavity, the pregnant belly begins to “pap” and become more and more visible. For first-time mothers, the pregnant belly will often show up late and be smaller in size than someone who has been pregnant before. Even though she was finding it hard to walk around.
Jade said: “I found out I was pregnant on December 1 2020, was told everything was going well, had a 12-week scan and I was told she was bigger in size than expected. I didn’t think much of it really, but when I had another scan at 20 weeks, I was told she would weigh around 10lbs.It got me a bit scared and I had to keep coming in for scans. Towards the end of the pregnancy, I was in a lot of pain carrying that size baby and the same amount of water, it was hard to walk around and I struggled being pregnant in summertime.”
The 22-year-old was given the option to give birth through a C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ which made her feel a lot more comfortable.
Jade said: “If I tried a natural birth, that could have dislocated Paisley’s shoulders and I could have gone into an emergency C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ anyway. But the C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ went great, and she’s healthy now. I had some complications with my scar afterwards because of the way I had been carrying her, and Paisley found it hard to breathe at first and was taken to the neonatal ward. But everything was OK in the end.”
Her friends and family were amazed at the size of Paisley and even had consultants amazed. Jade then set about looking to see if bigger babies had been born in Nottingham.
She said: “My consultant at the time said it was the biggest baby they had ever delivered. Everyone on the neonatal ward also said it’s the biggest they’ve seen at the hospital too. Everyone I knew couldn’t believe it, I couldn’t even believe it; she was so massive and chunky, people kept saying to me they thought she was a boy!
My partner Joseph 23 held her first and was in shock, you should have seen the reaction on his face, he didn’t know what to do with himself!”
Paisley is thought to be the biggest ever baby ever born in Nottingham. Jade added Paisley is healthy and is now a ‘normal size.
Sharon Wallis, director of midwifery at Nottingham City Hospital, said: “We would like to wish Jade many congratulations on the safe birth of her baby and are pleased she had such a good experience at our hospital. We wish her and her family every good wish for their future together.”
