A British woman became a mother for the first time just three hours after doctors discovered she was pregnant, The Sun reported Tuesday.
Belinda Waite, 21, had been in and out of hospital for nine months after being told she was suffering from a severe case of irritable bowel syndrome and gout.
It was only after she was admitted to hospital in severe pain on Feb. 6 that doctors realized she was expecting.
They told Waite she was around three months pregnant and sent her back home to Bampton, Devon in the U.K., just before midnight.
But a few hours later, baby Louise arrived weighing a healthy 8 pounds, 14 ounces to the amazement of Waite and her boyfriend, Wayne Boyles.
"I did feel like something was moving inside me as the months went on," Waite said. "But I never considered I was pregnant — and it doesn't seem to have crossed the doctors' minds."
