It's pregnancy, not gout -- woman shocked

BAMPTON, England, March 10 (UPI) -- A British woman said she gave birth to her first child only 3 hours after doctors discovered she was pregnant, and not suffering from gout as they had thought.

Belinda Waite, 21, of Bampton, England, said she had been in and out of the hospital for 9 months with problems her doctors attributed to irritable bowel syndrome and gout -- and she was shocked Feb. 6 when doctors told her she was about 3 months pregnant, The Sun reported Wednesday.

Waite and husband Wayne Boyles, 28, said the hospital sent her home just before midnight but she was back 3 hours later to give birth to a healthy 8-pound, 14-ounce daughter.

"I was really shocked. They told me to get some rest and make an appointment with the doctors the following Monday," Waite said. "Three hours later, Louise was born. I don't think Wayne could believe it was happening."

Officials at the hospital, run by National Health Service Devon, were unavailable for comment, The Sun said.
