A 44-year-old Michigan woman went to her local hospital for hernia pains. Fifteen hours later, Linda Ackley was a first time mom. Turns out the "hernia" was a baby girl ready to make her big debut.

I suspect the mother is obese, before and after delivery.

A thin woman would have noticed something.

It takes a vast woman to mistake it for yesterday’s 4 large pan style pizzas.

Not necessarily.
My niece is in the Air Force, and even though she deliveries 8+ pound babies, until the last month you wouldn’t even know she was pregnant.
The couple had been married a long time without conception, bless them all for this baby.

My husband had a army buddy whose wife claimed to have a tumor. I told my husband that she was pregnant, and sure enough five or six month later the tumor turned out to be a little baby girl

Actually a very nice story. Also very lucky to have a healthy baby at 44 years old with no neonatal care or anything.

That's nothing - I saw this movie where a woman goes to a hospital because of a tumor on her neck, and ends up giving birth to an ancient Indian Shaman!

OK, this part of the article made me laugh:

[She and her husband] have been married for 24 years. They met at Jackson High School and became a couple when he was a junior and she was a sophomore. They imagined children were impossible; they had not taken measures to protect against pregnancy and the babies never came.

Guess they don't have very good imaginations. What act could possibly result in a man and woman having a baby? Hmmmm . . . .

I don’t get this at all. The picture reveals a normal sized abdomen of a woman who just gave birth. She still has a normal baby bump (that reduces weeks later). How could she not know that her obviously pregnant looking stomach wasn’t a hernia but a baby?

I agree. This is such a blessing for these parents.
It may have been a better way to go, given their age, it could have been very worrisome during the pregnancy.
The pure joy on their faces, is just so precious.
My guess, they will be brilliant parents and this child will be a great joy for them and the rest of their families.
The baby is one lucky dude or dudet.

A women who is 44, and never been pregnant may just not have recognized the signs of pregnancy.
My guess she just thought she was in menopause.
Bless them all, it is pure joy.

Huh?

At 44, she thinks she’ already in menopause? When her monthly cycle stopped, she had no idea. I guess it is a women's thing......

“... may not have recognized the signs of pregnancy”.

I agree that this baby is a blessing to them. However, getting a large stomach is just one sign of being pregnant. Everything changes... and I mean everything. I just don’t understand how one could ignore a moving, kicking child inside of you. Perhaps, she isn’t the most intelligent person in the world. I’m not saying that in a mean way.. but perhaps she is a bit slow and didn’t understand.

According to the article she was completely clueless about her pregnancy, because her menstrual periods had “always been irregular” They had always believed they could not get pregnant.

Not having a period for multiple months would generally be a clue.

In today’s society, usually NOT wanting one results in pregnancy.

I suppose it can happen earlier for some, later for others. Lots to do with family histories.

Believing she might have a hernia, the doctor sent her to an Allegiance Health facility for a computerized tomography or CT scan.

Not the best imaging study for a 3rd trimester fetus

I remember a gal in the military who weighed about 115 or 120 and she went into the hospital thinking she had a severe digestive acid problem. She gave birth the day she went into the hospital. Had no clue she was pregnant.

It reminded me a bit of how Sarah laughed at God when He said she’d have a child in her older age, and later God said the child’s name would be Isaac, meaning “laughter”. Kind of a reminder to Sarah everytime she saw her boy.

Because her menstrual periods had always been irregular. So they thought she could not get pregnant. It makes perfect sense to me

Actually, this circumstance is not that unusual. In fact, it happens frequently enough to provide weekly episodes of a reality show on the Discovery Channel called "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant."

Wait a minute. Where do you get that she thought she was in menopause? It doesn't say anything about that in the article. What it says is that her menstrual period had always been irregular

I do not understand either.
I was pregnant many many times (only had three live births, but one child).
Anyway, I knew the day after conception. I had really strange symptoms (weird really, my nose would bleed, flying bugs started biting - I’d go to the doctor and say “Hey, I am pregnant my nose is bleeding...they just laughed but I was right)
However, if after all those years of trying and no pregnancy, she really may have thought something else was wrong.
I think this story is fantastic.
As I said before this child is a blessing and sorely blessed with this mom and
dad.
I would love to learn, he became a fantastic and valuable citizen of the US, what a story they will have to tell.

LOL No, I don’t remember exactly what they named her but I think it started with a C like Cheryl or something like that. We met them years later again in Kansas when my husband got transferred from Fort Rucker, AL to Fort Riley, KS. The girl was then 5 or 6 years old if I recall. Then after my husband retired at Fort Campbell, KY my husband found out that they were stationed there and lived on post. We visited them in their Quarters. The girl by the way was not the oldest one. they had already a boy when the wife thought she had a tumor. That is why I could not understand that she didn’t know she was pregnant

Sorry, but ‘irregular’ does not mean ‘stopped’ for how ever many months for the pregnancy.

When I was pregnant with my daughter in 1969 and I went to my checkup there was a woman there who looked like she was about four month along. Then in 1972 when we got transferred to Fort Riley we were neighbors. I found out that she was the one who looked like she was only 4 month along. They had a boy and Billy was only a few weeks older or younger, then my daughter. Anyway they went to kindergarten together

My mom told me that she as so excited to beleive she was pregnant and went to the doctors thinking two months, the doctor told her seven months.
She had what she though was a period until five months.
Sometimes, a woman who has never been pregnant just does not know.

"At 44, she thinks she’ already in menopause?"

Sure, it can happen. It's considered early menopause if it happens before 40. My mom went through it at 42, not long after I was born. I'm 49 and have no signs of menopause.

I hear these stories about women who didn’t know they were pregnant and I have to scratch my head. There’s a certain monthly cycle that hasn’t happened in several months. There’s the obvious extended abdomen and the fact that for the last few months she can’t sleep on her stomach and for God’s sake, can’t she feel the baby moving!!!??? Can she be that ignorant??

Hmm. More questions for this physician. Really - she went to the doctor and he sends her off for a CT scan??? No examination. Not a standard of care for someone who thinks he/she might have a hernia. Very weird.
