Unilad: Atlanta woman gave birth to 12 pound baby
25-year-old Carmen Trinice from Atlanta, who gave birth to a baby just under 12 pounds, opened up about her struggle during the labor.
According to a report from Unilad, the baby born on July 27 is Trinice’s seventh child and is named Dwayne Michael Canada.
At the time of his birth, he tipped the scales at a whopping 11lbs and 5oz, which is about five pounds over the average for newborns.
When she went in for ultrasound 36 weeks into the pregnancy, Trinice somehow suspected something strange about the child she was carrying. She stated that she somehow felt that Dwayne was ‘way too big.’

Unilad confirmed that by that time, he was already weighing 8 pounds. Trinice struggled to do the most basic of tasks and the pain for her was almost unbearable.
“I couldn’t stand on my feet for more than 20 minutes, or walk for too long without having pain,” she told the online source. “I gained about 50lbs during pregnancy but a lot of it was belly.”
However, Trinice was not new at giving birth to children who were slightly above the average weight. She had the experience of giving birth to a daughter who was also a bit heavy at 8lbs and 7oz.
For this reason, she had planned to have a cesarean section for the childbirth this time around.
Her scheduled time for surgery was pushed forth by about an hour, which caused her to experience pain for a longer duration of time.
'It burned like a fire was lit in my stomach and I felt him being pulled out,' she told the Unilad.
Even after the delivery, the struggles for raising her newborn child has been difficult for her. For now, she decided against breastfeeding the newborn because he consumed a huge quantity of milk.
Pregnancy complications are often common among the mothers and it can happen to anyone. Even the royals such as the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, struggles with a rare pregnancy complication unknown to many.
