Sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ Student Who Had No Bump Or Idea Was Pregnant And Giving Birth To A Baby Boy
Anna Haigh, 20, had no bump or idea she was pregnant and thought she was sᴜꜰꜰᴇʀɪɴɢ ꜰʀᴏᴍ ʙᴀᴄᴋ ᴘᴀɪɴ – but the ᴀɢᴏɴʏ ᴛᴜʀɴᴇᴅ ᴏᴜᴛ ᴛᴏ ʙᴇ ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴs. 9-stone Anna kept her size 8 figure throughout her pregnancy and was amazed when baby Oliver came into the world weighing a healthy 8lb 1oz.
Despite the surprise delivery, she is pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor and has just started ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀʟ school at Liverpool University – a full-time seven-year course – AND works as a waitress on a Sunday. Just seven days after giving birth, Anna sat her A-level maths exam – scoring an incredible A* and 100 percent in two of her papers.
Anna said: “It was ᴄʀᴀᴢʏ. I thought it was just something minor. I went to A&E with my mum and they put me on a bed on a ward and started taking a ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ ᴛᴇsᴛ and put me on ᴘᴀɪɴᴋɪʟʟᴇʀs. Nobody knew what was wrong with me and I only found out I was pregnant when my waters sᴜᴅᴅᴇɴʟʏ ʙʀᴏᴋᴇ on the bed. They kept telling me I was having a baby but it wouldn’t sink in.”
She added: “I’ve always been slim and all my mates joke about where I put it all because I’m forever eating rubbish. I thought I had put on a slight bit of weight under my ribs but I had no sign of a bump. I never really weigh myself but my clothes didn’t even feel any tighter.”
Anna went into labour at around 10am on May 14 at Warrington Hospital.
Next she phoned boyfriend of three years James Fisher, 20, to break the news that he’d just become a dad. “He’d known I’d gone to A&E and I’d told him not to worry. So when I rang he asked me how it had gone and that’s when I said ‘James, you’re a dad’.
“He couldn’t understand what I was saying and I had to keep repeating it.”
Shocked James, 20, said: “I held Oliver for the first time and it was incredible.”
The high-school sweethearts are now adjusting to their new life with a newborn.
