Woman gives birth to baby weighing just under 12lbs via c-section while her epidural wore off


A new mother who gave birth to a baby weighing just under 12lbs has described the ordeal she went through during labor.

Carmine Trinice, 25, welcomed her seventh child, Dwayne Michael Canada, on July 27.

He tipped the scales at a whopping 11lbs 5oz at the time of his birth, five pounds above the average for newborns.

At 36 weeks into her pregnancy, Trinice suspected something was up when she went in for an ultrasound.

She felt that Dwayne was ‘way too big’. By that point he already weight eight pounds, Unilad reported.

‘I couldn’t stand on my feet for more than 20 minutes, or walk for too long without having pain,’ Trinice said. ‘I gained about 50lbs during pregnancy but a lot of it was belly.’

The pain was unbearable, with the mother struggling to even do simple task like standing.

‘I couldn’t stand on my feet for more than 20 minutes, or walk for too long without having pain,’ she told the website. ‘I gained about 50lbs during pregnancy but a lot of it was belly.’

Trinice had planned to have a cesarean section. 

Six years ago, she gave birth to a daughter who was heavy in her own right, weighing 8lbs 7oz.

She claimed to have eaten well during her pregnancy, as ‘everyone was feeding [her] well,’ including her boyfriend and family.

Her diet would consist of ‘bacon burgers every other day’ and she ‘craved steak a lot.’

The mother had planned to go into surgery at 1.15pm and was given an epidural at 12.45pm, but lack of hospital rooms forced her time to be pushed back to 2.20pm. 

As a result, Trinice felt a lot more of the pregnancy.

‘It burned like a fire was lit in my stomach and I felt him being pulled out,’ she asserted. 

Trinice has chosen not to breastfeed the little giant, since he requires so much milk. 

At first he was drinking five to 10ml before graduating to 20-40ml in 24 hours. 

He now drinks approximately three oz every two to three hours. 

A friend of Trinice posted a photo of Dwayne which quickly became viral, gaining more than 52k shares.   

‘I really didn’t expect him to go viral all of my friends were just shocked at how big he was,’ the mother said.

‘I’ve had mothers from Texas to England messaging me congratulations or having questions about the birth or what I ate.

‘It’s been humbling knowing the first week of my sons life he’s made his mark on the world.’
