Mom Didn’t Know She Was Pregnant

Mom Didn’t Know She Was Pregnant, A Portland woman who went to the hospital because she thought her appendix had burst got a big surprise when she learned she was about to give birth.

Kim Nelson said she had no idea she was pregnant. “I was 39 weeks [pregnant] and didn’t have the slightest clue,” she told KGW Tuesday.

Nelson said she didn’t have any morning sickness and although she had gained weight, she thought it was because of cysts in her ovaries.

“I thought the weight gain was due to to cysts I had in my ovaries and working at Dairy Queen and eating all that food,” she said. “I didn’t have the slightest idea that this little bundle of joy was in my tummy.”

Nelson said she knows what it’s like to be pregnant – she has two other daughters with her partner, Sean Anderson. But this felt different. She said that doctors had also told her that she couldn’t have any more children, so she never suspected she was pregnant.

Then, last Wednesday, she started having pains in her stomach and rushed to the hospital.

“When I got to the hospital, they’re like, ‘can you possibly be pregnant?’ and I’m like, ‘no!’ And then they came back in and they’re like, ‘yeah, you’re pregnant,’” Nelson recalled.
