Every so often one of these stories comes about, and we’re shocked every time.
A woman went to the hospital in Beverly, Massachusetts on Wednesday with severe abdominal pain.
She thought she had a gallstone, but was shocked when doctors told her she was pregnant, and she gave birth an hour later.
Judy Brown, 47, has been married to her husband for 22 years and couldn’t believe she was pregnant.
She told ABC News: “After being married for 22 years, it wasn’t really coming up being pregnant.
“It was not really there in my mind.”
It is extremely rare for women not to know that they are pregnant, but is entirely plausible.
This is Judy and her husband’s first child, and they had to borrow a car seat and bassinet to leave the hospital.
Their daughter, Carolyn Rose, weighed 8 pounds, 2 ounces.
