London, Dec 04 (ANI): A Brit woman who was wrongly treated for a cyst on her ovaries was amazed to find that the "growth" was actually a baby - and she was nine months pregnant.
Amy Furber was prescribed antibiotics for an apparent lump on her ovaries after she began losing weight and suffering sharp stomach pains.
But after months of tests doctors told her she was pregnant just nine days before Furber gave birth to her son David.
"I just couldn't believe it when they told me I was pregnant. I was totally surprised but I'm really happy," the Daily Mail quoted Furber as saying.
The supermarket checkout worker's ordeal began in March when she went to her doctor complaining of stomach pains and feeling tired.
Blood tests appeared to show a cyst on her ovaries and she was sent away with antibiotics which women are warned not to take during pregnancy.
The teenager from East Huntspill, Somerset, continued partying with her friends. She even walked the two-and-a-half mile route of Somerset's Bridgwater Carnival last month blissfully unaware she was heavily pregnant.
But days after the parade she returned to her doctor after getting a splitting pain in her side.
More blood tests were taken and soon she got to know she did not have a cyst but was pregnant.
"I just didn't know what to do. I broke down in tears and called my mum straight away. I then went for a scan two days later and mum told me to expect to see a small bean-sized shape," she said.
"But instead there was a baby smiling back. I thought it was someone else's scan but the nurse said that was the baby inside my stomach. They said the pain in my side was the baby's legs kicking me. I just could not believe it," added Furber. (ANI)
