Is This The Biggest Baby Bump Ever? This Woman Had A 55-inch Tummy (PHOTOS)


It hasn't been confirmed but there's currently no woman on record in the UK who has had a 55-inch baby bump. 29 year Lara Carpenter-Beck, gained so much weight as her pregnancy progressed that she couldn't even fit into normal maternity wear.
The first time mum gained weight at a rapid rate during her pregnancy because she has diabetes.

    "At just 12 weeks people were asking me when I was due- I was that big. And my bump just kept growing and growing. It was my first pregnancy and so I had no idea what to expect- but I knew it wasn't normal to grow at the rate I was- especially with just one baby." She explained.

At 32 weeks a nurse informed Lara her baby already weighed 6lbs- the size of some full-term babies.
Just four weeks later, Lara was rushed in for a caesarean after her waters broke unexpectedly.
Lara and her partner welcomed baby Savannah into the world, who was born weighing a hefty 9lbs 5oz

    "Chris and I always assumed we were having a boy because my bump was so big, so it was a massive surprise to find out we had a girl. She was a big baby and filled the weighing scales.

    "We were so happy she was healthy though, we could cope with the fact she was a bit bigger than most newborns." Lara said
