She thought it was a bad stomach-ache, but it turned out to be a miracle baby boy! How does that even happen!?

We know TLC has a show called I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant, but seriously, this is crazy! Lesley Nicholl, 35, of Hackney, UK, was shocked to discover that her apparent stomach-ache was really a full-term pregnancy!! She was carrying a 9 lb., 2 oz. baby boy and he was days overdue! Surprise!

“I had scans, tests, I was still in major pain,” Lesley explains. “Eventually they [doctors] discovered there was this baby inside me, right up against my rib cage.” She delivered her third child, Nathan, hours later on Feb. 23 via Caesarean section at Homerton Hospital.

Lesley was releaved that her son was healthy, considering she never even knew she was pregnant. “I didn’t stop eating anything and before Christmas I was sick with bronchitis and had two courses of antibiotics – all that could have harmed him,” Lesley reveals. “Even the hospital is saying he’s a miracle baby because he’s come out perfect.”

Lesley noticed she put on a “teeny bit of weight,” but says she’s always been big. “I couldn’t pass as a model,” she jokes. She also insisted she had no morning sickness or cravings that would give her any clue she was pregnant.

“Nathan’s a true little miracle,” she says. “He’s come into the world for a good reason and he’s going to be special to us all.” Lesley and her partner Trevor Tull, 34, have a daughter Katie, 20 months, and a son Ryan, 6.

there’s bleeding associated with pregnancy that some women assume is still their period especially if they’ve ever had a child before or were pregnant previously and miscarried

Agreed, Courtney. My mum’s aunt had her ‘period’ with all of her kids, it’s just something that occurs in some women, that’s what the docs told me.

um 9lbs 2oz isn’t huge infact it’s in the healthy range for a full term baby. maybe the kid was facing towards his mothers back and she couldn’t feel him move and had no other symptoms that would’vemade her think she was pregnant like morning sickness food cravings/aversions water retention or weight gain

IF she was on birth control she may not have noticed as some birth controls stop a womens period all together.

it is abit wearied but it can happen and she is not stupid but i would have gone to the doctors to check my self out. scans cant really lie just the doctor is stupid if they say nothing there. some woman can bleed in between pregnancy and them woman who know they are pregnant should go to a doctor them who dont like me would not think to go as thinking it was a normal period. at first i thought i was with cravings and i felt sick most the time but not sick just little and i gained little wait. i told my fionc’e but he thought it was nothing and then 3 days after telling him i was bleeding little then stopped and then 2 days i did the same. really crazy period but it gave me the impression i was not pregnant so i just forgot the idea until the time i went to his sister and a burst of much blood went all over his sister floor and sofa and i went to the loo and i could not stop bursting lots of blood. so he got a car and i went to the emergency doctors and they said they thinkkkkkk i am pregnant and i should go to the hospital. the pain i was going threw was huge and i did loose the baby. but it is possible for woman to not know. but only i agree with it in early stages not full term. but i still would never call her stupid. just the doctor.

A woman can’t have a period and be pregnant at the same time. If there are times when they experience bleeding while pregnant, it’s not a period it’s just vaginal bleeding and should be checked out by their doctor.

Ahh, but if you don’t know you’re pregnant, you’ll assume the breakthrough bleeding is your period. And lots of women have that and no problems at all. But, many women are also very irregular to begin with.

Women have a wide range of cycles. For me it’s not abnormal to go 6 months without a period. So you never know what was normal for her.

Some women have spotting all through out their pregnancy and can commonly be mistaken as a regular period.

9lbs is healthy for a sumo wrestler baby.
The average baby should be 6-8 lbs, not 9lbs!

6 pounds is considered small b/c when my son was 6 pounds 9 oz the hospital said he was small and had to put premmi clothes on him.
Now to the story, when you go for tests like x rays they ask you about the chance of being prego, hell going for x rays they ask when was last period and you had sex and if need be they will give you a pregnancy test there. How the hell does she not know she was pregnant with number 3. I used to have irregular periods and if it was a few months of nothing I would take a test. Sometimes people really need to use there brains.

Actually, 7.5lbs-9 is the healthy average before women started smoking and getting induced. It used to be that a 6lb baby would be held for observation for fear they were too small to live. 6lbs is NOT average (7.5 is), but it is in the healthy normal range now–largely because women don’t allow their babies to develop to their true full term anymore. A 6lber at 41 weeks is healthy. A 6lber at 38 weeks needed more time. The lung, heart and brain development from 37-40 is dramatic and doesn’t happen the same outside the womb. Of course, whenever a baby is born normally, is when they’re born. This really is only an issue with babies prematurely born by induction.
