Teresa Brown and baby

A 37-year-old woman from New York unexpectedly became a mom a few days ago. She gave birth to a surprise baby boy -- after being rushed to the hospital with horrible abdominal pain.

Teresa Brown believed she had appendicitis or gall stones, and after undergoing blood work at the hospital, she was told that she was pregnant and was actually in labor. She welcomed baby Andrew a mere 45 minutes later, who weighed in at 4 pounds, 12 ounces and is healthy, despite being born two weeks early and having no prenatal care.

And I know you've heard plenty of stories about women who didn't know they were pregnant and have probably wondered how in the heck they didn't realize there was a baby growing inside of them.

Well, in Teresa's case, she had no reason to believe that pregnancy was a possibility, because 15 years ago doctors told her that she'd never be able to have kids.

Huh. Guess it's safe to say they were wrong.

Take a look at this video to hear more about Teresa's birth story.

OMG. Can you imagine how shocked she must have been when she learned she was about to become a parent? I mean, if you'd been told that you were infertile -- would it ever cross your mind that you might be expecting a baby?

It's also interesting how Teresa reported her cycles being normal throughout the pregnancy, and only having a 10-pound weight gain. Those two factors coupled with the "you can't have kids thing" is definitely enough to throw anyone off.

(Holy sh&%. Some women still have their period even though they're pregnant? Guess we can't always rely on that as a sign that we're not expecting. Nuts.)

But even though her baby Andrew wasn't exactly part of the plan, it's obvious that she's overjoyed to have him and that she's really embracing being a mom. I guess some things in life are just meant to be -- even when you never dreamed they were possible.

Do you think this pregnancy was easy to miss, given the circumstances of Teresa's case?
