Surprise You are Pregnant
“A WOMAN rushed to hospital with tummy trouble, fearing she had eaten a dodgy kebab, was shocked to give birth instead, a British newspaper reported today.
Helen Smitham, 25, of Distington in northwest England, had no idea she was pregnant when she complained of feeling a bit rough â€“ with an iffy kebab thought to blame.
Her mother rushed her to the nearby West Cumberland Hospital where she gave birth so quickly that doctors did not even have time to tell her she was expecting.
Her baby son Deaton was born on December 24 weighing four pounds and 11 ounces (2.1kg) said The Sun, Britain’s biggest-selling daily.
“I had absolutely no idea,” a stunned Ms Smitham said.”
How do you not know that you are pregnant.

I remember a story a few years back about a very heavy 58 year old woman who gave birth to twins without knowing she was pregnant – and she had already gone through menopause!

Surprisingly enough, it does happen- often enough that Oprah devoted a whole show to the phenomenon some years back!

It happens every once in a while. I think the typical scenario is, the moms are highly overweight and have very irregular periods, so they don’t notice anything out of the ordinary. Still, it’s undeniably bizarre.
