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.
