Notizie strane: è
incinta, lo scopre 3 ore prima di partorire
Scritto da Filomena Procopio
sempre le notizie strane che rastrelliamo dal web hanno
dell’incredibile, e permetteteci di dire che quella di oggi è da restare
a bocca aperta. Una donna incinta scopre di esserlo solo tre ore prima
di partorire. Non ci credete? Eppure è così…E’ successo davvero anche
se, come accade spesso per le notizie strane , è difficile crederlo. Ma
cosa è successo?
Ecco la nostra notizia strana e curiosa di oggi: Belinda Waite ha 21
anni. E’ giovane ma qualcosa non va. C’è qualcosa nel suo corpo che la
fa star male. Come si fa sempre in questi casi, Belinda decide di andare
dal dottore per capire da cosa possa dipendere il suo malore. Braccia e
gambe gonfie? Sono provocati da un’allergia. Gli altri sintomi invece
sono frutto di un disturbo intestinale.
Queste sono le risposte che i dottori trovano ai malori della ragazza.
Un giorno però, dopo un bel po' di mesi, i dolori sono più forti del
solito. Si tratta di fortissimi dolori intestinali. Belinda non ce la fa
più e va in Ospedale. I medici a quel punto non hanno dubbi: i dolori
che la ragazza ha sono le doglie perchè è incinta. Scopre di esserlo
solo tre ore prima di partorire.
Strano ma vero…
Belinda mette alla luce una
bellissima bambina di 4 kg. E’ sana e non ha nessun tipo di problema
eppure pensate che la ragazza ha vissuto questa gravidanza senza neppure
sapere che fosse incinta.
A questo punto però, oltre che a farle gli auguri, ci chiediamo:
ma il fatto che per mesi non ha abbia avuto il ciclo non le ha fatto
venire un minimo di sospetto? Belinda dice che ha sentito crescere
qualcosa dentro di lei, ma che non ha collegato le due cose!

Waite gave birth to a baby girl — just three hours after being told she
was pregnant by doctors who initially diagnosed her with Irritable Bowel
For nine months and after attending Tiverton and District Hospital on
several occasions, Belinda, 21, had been told she had a severe case of
IBS and gout.

Belinda, a hairdresser who is better known as Billy and lives in West
Street, Bampton, near Tiverton, said: “You read about these stories in
magazines, but you never think they happen to real people — and I
certainly never thought it would happen to me.”
Billy was staying in Yeo Mill with her partner Wayne Boyles, 28, when
she unexpectedly went into labour.
Their baby girl, Louise Boyles, was delivered in the house at 2.30am by
Wayne’s mother, Sylvia Boyles. Louise weighed 8lbs 14ozs.
“It was obviously a huge shock for us all,” said Billy, “but you have to
get on with these things — and we are all really enjoying it.”
Billy said she had not felt right for some months before Louise’s birth.
“I did feel like something was moving inside me as the months went on,”
she said, “But I never considered I was pregnant — and it doesn’t seem
to have crossed the doctors’ minds.”
Feeling unwell, Billy went to Tiverton & District Hospital. She was
advised by doctors it was likely to be caused by IBS.
On Christmas Day, Billy was taken to hospital after her hands and feet
swelled up. Doctors assured her she was suffering from gout or an
On February 6 — the night before Louise arrived — Billy was again take
to hospital, with pains throughout her body. At around 10pm, doctors
told her she was three months’ pregnant.
“I was really shocked,” said Billy.. “They told me to get some rest and
make an appointment with the doctors the following Monday.”
Three hours later, Louise was born.
“I don’t think Wayne could believe it was happening,” said Billy.
“We hardly had time to think about it; no one believed us when we told
them we suddenly had a child.”
Billy said Louise is perfectly healthy — but it could have been a
different story, as she was very active during the pregnancy.
“I went on rollercoasters at Alton Towers, on water slides in Spain, I
probably ate all the wrong foods — and was knocked down by a car,” she
“Luckily I do not smoke and I stopped drinking alcohol as it made me
