"I had absolutely no idea". Shocked

Can people really be that ignorant?

New mum thought baby was kebab

From: Agence France-Presse From correspondents in London
December 30, 2005

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 - 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.

"When I had stomach pains I thought it was the kebab. At the hospital there was no time for the doctors to see me before it all happened."

Ms Smitham's boyfriend Mark Askew, 41, was also flabbergasted.
"She was at work until the Friday before Christmas and we'd gone out and done the normal things, like going out for a drink, Christmas parties and socialising.

"When I got a call to say we had a baby boy it was amazing."

(notice the last 3 letters of the word "kebab" are ALSO the first 3 letters of the word "baby"... it all makes sense now...)

Region, you're funny.

It happens, Reyn. Many pregnant women don't have any changes in their biological clock to alert them to the blessed event. She may have been a heavy woman to begin with.

Surely, this is made up? A hoax? A scam, it's a slow news time of year...

Ah, I see. What if you play it backwards, and walk without shoes on? :wink:

Hmm, okay, I'll go with your explanation. It's an awfully small baby, too.

Maybe I missed it, but I wonder how far along she was? I just can't imagine not knowing ...from the kicks, the hiccups, the missed periods, and the physical changes.

Whenever I see this thread I think it has something to do with her taking a bite out of the baby while sleepwalking or something, so what actually happened comes as a relief...
