After partying at five different festivals without realizing she was pregnant, a woman named Sally Smith was taken aback when she gave birth to a kid.
Sally Smith thought she had woken up with stomach cramps one day, but when her sister dialed 911, she was surprised to hear she was pregnant and on the verge of giving birth.
She is 23 years old.
Sally Have No Idea She Was Pregnant
Sally Smith, 23, thought she awoke on March 10, 2020, with stomach cramps, but when her sister phoned paramedics, she was astonished to hear she was pregnant.
Doctors not only informed her that she was expecting a child, but they also saw the baby’s head. The woman was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead, Tyne, and Wear, but gave birth to her “surprise baby,” Gabriel Smith, in the ambulance parking lot before they could even enter the building. Sally claims she took contraception, had periods, and was a size 10-12 throughout her pregnancy, and had no idea she was pregnant since “nothing appeared out of the ordinary.”
She enjoyed the “time of her life” during her surprise pregnancy, with no evidence of a bump, enjoying and working at festivals like Glastonbury and Parklife with her pals.
The waitress characterized her birth as the “most weird thing ever,” and claimed her one-year-old son Gabe is the “greatest thing that’s ever happened” to her. Sally, from Tyne & Wear’s Gateshead, said: “I had no idea I was pregnant until I went into labour.
“I didn’t put on any weight, had no bump and was probably skinnier then than I am now.”
“If I had a drink after work I was always sick and people would joke that I was pregnant and I’d be like ‘if I was pregnant, I’d be eight months pregnant now’ – that was kind of the running joke at work for a while.”
She stated she felt back pain when she was seven or eight months pregnant, but she assumed it was due to the fact that her new job required her to lift kegs and other large objects that were delivered.
Sally went to Poland with some friends the week before she gave birth, and while on vacation, she walked slowly but didn’t realize she was pregnant. She said: “Everything had an answer for – there was nothing out of the ordinary.”
Sally, on the other hand, tried to remain calm and focused when paramedics came at her house and informed her that she was about to give delivery. She said: “She [paramedic] walked in and I was lying on the floor and she said ‘well, we can see a head, you’re definitely having a baby’.”
“That’s when I was kind of like ‘ok’. The only thing that was going through my mind was that I was in so much pain I kept trying to go to sleep. I would expect I would freak out but I was so calm and just like ‘right, this is what I’ve got to do’ – there’s no way that I can’t.”
“By the time they got there, I was already pushing. I was just thinking ‘right ok, I’ve just got to get this bit over with and we’ll deal with everything else later’, that’s all I could really think about.”
Sally continued: “We got in the ambulance and we could already see his head and as we were pulling up to the hospital, that’s where I gave birth.
“It was just kind of the most surreal thing ever – I don’t think anything is ever going to top it. It was just a bit crazy.”
Her newborn son weighed 5lbs 3oz and was born in the hospital parking lot at 1.50 pm after three to four hours of labor.
When her father later arrived at the hospital, the young mum stated that her family was “very supportive” and on hand throughout the entire procedure. She was even told by the nurses that they had “never seen someone smile that much.”
Sally added: “When I was giving birth I remember thinking ‘well I can’t have a baby, I’m 23, I’ve just been promoted so how am I meant to look after a baby when I work such long hours? I can’t do it. As soon as they put him on my chest I was alright because he was there and completely fine. I was just so calm.”
“Not to sound corny but I was just completely in love. I was like ‘right I’m fine, I’ll be able to do it because he’s here’.”
“As soon as I held him I was filled with love and totally obsessed with him from the start.”
Back in 2019, Sally stated she had just graduated university and enjoyed the “greatest summer of her life,” not realizing she was pregnant with Gabe. During her pregnancy, she also worked two to three months as a nightclub supervisor, doing shifts from 2 p.m. to 4 a.m.
She started working in a pub shortly before giving birth and was promoted in February 2020. Sally claimed she was nine months pregnant while she was changing barrels. When she was released from the hospital, the country was put on lockdown, according to the mother of one.
She claimed she texted a handful of her friends who were shocked by the good news, and they ultimately stopped by for window visits to meet the baby.
