Woman who thought she had food poisoning was actually 9 months pregnant and in labour

A woman got the surprise of her life after giving birth to a baby despite not knowing she was pregnant.

Melissa began to feel “excruciating pain” after a night out and was rushed to hospital with suspected food poisoning.

However she was shocked when medics told her that not only was she pregnant, but she was full-term and in labour, reports the Daily Star.

The 36-year-old, from Bolton, said: “I was living a normal life. We went to Sicily on holiday, went to Wimbledon, went on the Tube.

“I had no idea. I was having periods. I didn’t have any morning sickness or a bump. One day I started having excruciating pain. I thought it was food poisoning, so I went to hospital.

“They examined me and said, ‘You’re in labour!’ And they thought I was probably full-term. At first, there was denial. It didn’t seem possible. I was in absolute shock.

“It was what they call a cryptic pregnancy where the baby sits towards the back.”

Her partner Brian, 52, raced to the hospital when she shared the unexpected news.

He said: “When I realised she was in the maternity ward, I thought, ‘Oh my God’. All sorts of things were going through my mind.

“When Melissa told me what was happening, I was in shock. Her mum was there – it was the first time we’d actually met.”

The couple were over the moon when they welcomed a 7lb baby boy – despite the shock.

Melissa said: “As soon as he came into the world, there was more love than I’ve ever known. It was incredible.”

Brian recently won £78,000 on game show The Wheel.

Their son is now two-years-old and Brian said: “He is going to get lots of presents. And I’ll be putting money in a trust.”

The Wheel airs on Saturdays on BBC One.
