Physicians allegedly gasped when Faye Gardiner, 33, of Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, first saw her sons Joseph and Luke, who weigh 8 lb 7 oz and 7 lb 11 oz, respectively. Gardiner's physicians and she predict that her twins will weigh the same as the average newborn twin at 5 pounds. Nonetheless, the "size" of Gardiner's baby caused a stir in the operating room when he was born. Gardiner, who lives with her insurance investigator husband Simon, 32, was ecstatic to find she was pregnant.
A few weeks later, however, the medical staff informed her that she had undergone an ectopic pregnancy, a pregnancy that occurs outside of the fallopian tube. She subsequently learned that she was having twins, but the doctors felt that one would not live because it was so little. She said that the doctors were afraid that she had an ectopic pregnancy due to her severe pain. When I had an ultrasound, they informed me that the developing fetus was normal, but there was also another little sac present. They informed me that it could be a twin, but they did not believe the smaller twin would survive because it was so much smaller. They were unaware that the couple would remain together.
At her most recent growth scan, doctors warned her that the twins would weigh between 5 and 6 pounds each. The cesarean section delivery of the twins exceeded everyone's expectations. Doctors had predicted that each boy would weigh between 5 and 6 pounds, therefore their much higher birth weights surprised us, as reported by the lady. I overheard the surgeon on the operating table gasping as they saved the boys. I was oblivious of the situation. I can only wish for their well-being. I couldn't believe their weight when they informed me. My youngsters weigh more than 16 lbs. collectively. Several hospital employees went to see them since they were so enormous. Nobody could have imagined their size."
The twins were discharged from the hospital after just a few days and are developing normally. Luke has exceeded his brother in terms of weight. Gardiner explains, "We bought little baby clothing to bring to the hospital, but none of them fit." First, it was necessary to buy them larger ones. Both have healthy desires, resulting in rapid weight gain. They possessed distinct personalities. Joseph is the son of an actual mother, whilst Luke is the most relaxed. Luke weighs 16 lb 8 oz and Joseph weighs 16 lb 2 oz at 5 months of age.
