Indiana Mother: 'I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant"

Posted: Updated:

Oh baby!       

An Indiana mother was in for a big surprise when she went to the emergency room with sharp abdominal pains and left with a baby boy.

Mandy Bachelor thought she needed an appendectomy, so after working a full eight hour shift at an assembly plant on her feet she headed to the hospital.

She says her body never showed any signs of pregnancy, but once she arrived she got a big surprise.  She was going to deliver a baby boy!

Her son weighed in at just over seven pounds.

"They thought maybe she had gallstones. She said, 'we'll take her back,' and then a few minutes later her water burst everywhere," said her husband, John Cox.

"I never showed. I had weight gain but it was normal. I was very shocked," explains Bachelor.

This mother and father of three says they are thankful for friends and family who rushed out to purchase things a baby would need while they were still in the hospital.

They had previously given away all of their baby furniture back in December because they thought they were "done having babies."
