In California, Abby Wake discovered she was eight months pregnant when her boyfriend, Jarryd Gorman, felt their baby kick at a concert. He said, ‘”I felt the baby kick and I looked at her and said, ‘I think you’re definitely pregnant.’ [I said] we need to go see someone straight away.’”

Then the couple went to Dr. Payman Joseph, an OB-GYN and he immediately discovered she was 32-weeks pregnant. According to the Daily Mail, Wake had no idea she was pregnant because she didn’t experience any pregnancy symptoms and always had irregular periods.

Dr. Joseph told them that although it was a surprise and a bit unbelievable, this happened to women more than they might think. However, he did acknowledge that Wake was slimmer than most women who were eight months pregnant, which could be part of the reason it went undetected.

Additionally, Wake is lactose intolerant and thought the movements in her stomach had something to do with her condition. She said, “There weren’t, like, kicks and huge movements. It was just like gurgles.”

Now Wake and Gorman are excited about welcoming their son, Isaac, next month.

As LifeNews previously reported, another woman gave birth a baby boy after finding out she was eight months pregnant. In Florida, Maxxandra Ford set a record at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital when she gave birth to a 14.1-pound baby. Ford started gaining weight in the fall but didn’t take a pregnancy test until her husband noticed that she was gaining weight rapidly.

Unbelievably, Ford’s first doctors appointment after the positive pregnancy test revealed that she was 35-weeks pregnant and her baby was expected to be 10-pounds. But during Avery’s birth, Ford said she knew that her child weighted more doctors estimated. According to Guinness World Records, Avery is the second largest baby ever born. In 1879, Ann Bates of Canada gave birth to a newborn that weighed in at 23 pounds, 12 ounces.

Remarkably, Avery did not suffer any complications and Maxxzandra did not require a caesarean section.
