Woman Goes to Hospital For Constipation, is Actually Pregnant, Gives Birth Hours Later

In a story that will likely cause all women to second guess each stomach twinge, a British woman this week went to the hospital because she'd been feeling badly.

She thought it was just constipation. Instead, she was roughly eight months pregnant.

Amanda Ross had been out shopping with her partner, Paul Dean, when she started experiencing stomach cramps. She'd previously been feeling bloated but wrote it off as being constipated.

As she felt worse, Ross headed to see her doctor. They sent her over to a midwife who determined that she was indeed pregnant. 

She was sent home with meds to alleviate the stomach issues but only hours later was headed to the hospital. 

Four hours after arriving at the hospital, she gave birth to her daughter Chloe.

In the span of 15 hours, Ross went from thinking she needed to poo, to having a baby. My dog sleeps for over 15 hours a day. It's hard to fathom something that life changing happening in the about the same amount of time as a Labrador nap.

As mind boggling as it is for the rest of us, it's hard to fathom what Ross and Dean are feeling. Best of luck to the new parents!

I'm having a very difficult time not thinking of this Bad Milo trailer when reading this story. I should be ashamed of myself.

Though there are few alternatives for women pnargent without insurance, it is important to protect your future family and yourself from the financial complications and insufficient care that arise from poor health coverage during pregnancy.You should also get your information about your health options first hand from licensed insurance providers. I would suggest you visit Americas Health Brokers site to find a quote in your area. They offer affordable maternity insurance, and they don't discriminate. Hope this help. Goodluck!

i didnt know i was pregnant till i was in labor. i had an abnormal menstrual cycle before getting pregnant and even during my pregnancy, I had my periods maybe 3 times, all normal periods. I was indeed overweight and because it was around the holidays, I was invited to many parties that of course had good food! I had a hunch but because I was working and attending school, my concentration was lacking in the "i have a hunch, lets get checked".

It says no where in this article that she lives in the United States. It states she is a British woman, and if you click on the link on her name, in that article it states that she lives close to Bristol. Bristol is the largest city of south west of England. Do some research before you start verbally bashing and entire country.

How overweight do you have to be to not know you're eight months pregnant?! Unless the baby was very small in size but it is still hard to wrap your head around how you could be eight months pregnant and not notice physical body changes...

Actually you dont have to be over weight to not know you're pregnant...this is why it's important for facilities to be handy. I was 5 months pregnant weighed 150 and had no clue...so yes this does happen and though its a blessing scary is just the start of it.
