‘A 39-year-old woman who didn’t know she was pregnant gave birth this week after going to an emergency room with a stomachache.
April Barnum of Garden Grove gave birth to a full-term, 7-pound, 7-ounce boy by Caesarian section at University of California, Irvine, Medical Center, hospital officials said.
The 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.”‘
