From the greatest country in the world. I will number the things that interest me:
ORANGE - A 39-year-old woman who (#1) didn't know she was pregnant gave birth this week after going to an emergency room with a stomachache. April (#2) Barnum of Garden Grove gave birth to a (#3) full-term , 7-pound, 7-ounce boy by Caesarian section at UC Irvine Medical Center, hospital officials said. The (#4) 420-pound woman said her size kept her and others from realizing she was carrying the baby.
"Usually you can tell if you're pregnant, but with me, I couldn't tell," Barnum said Thursday, a day after the birth. "If he kicked, I didn't feel him kicking."
Dr. Afshan Hameed said her weight likely insulated the tiny movements of the baby.
Doctors saw the baby when they took X-rays of her abdominal area on Monday after she arrived at an emergency room near her home complaining of stomach pains.
The baby is named after her (#5) fiance, Walter Edwards II, 42.
