It only took three visits to the hospital, but Belinda Waite finally found out she was pregnant—a few hours before she gave birth. The Devon, England resident felt unwell for months before the birth. According to The Telegraph, the first time she went to the hospital, she was told it was Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The second time, when she arrived with swollen hands and feet, the doctors thought it was allergies or gout. "I did feel like something was moving inside me as the months went on. But I never considered I was pregnant and it doesn't seem to have crossed the doctors' minds," Waite told The Telegraph. Finally, at her third visit to the hospital, doctors realized that she was, in fact, pregnant—three months so, they told her. As it turned out, she was actually nine months pregnant, and four hours later gave birth at home to a healthy, 8-pound 14-ounce girl named Louise.
