Californian woman gives unexpected birth

A 37-year-old woman who rushed to a Long Beach, Calif., hospital complaining of stomach pains discovered she was pregnant and gave birth to a 1-pound, 4-ounce girl a short time later.

During a hospital visit, Annice Allen was told she was 6 months pregnant. Three hours later, she gave birth to a girl named Jimice.

Annice Allen said she drove to a hospital thinking she was having severe menstrual cramps.

During the visit, Allen was told she was six months pregnant. Three hours later, she gave birth to a girl named Jimice.

"That day I went to work and worked all day actually and thought I was having pretty bad menstrual cramps," Allen said.

"How could you not know you were six months pregnant?" a reporter asked.

"That's a good question," Allen said. "I did not know. My stomach, I'm exactly the same size now that I was then."

Annice and Jimmy Allen believed they couldn't have children after several miscarriages, according to a report.

Doctors gave the OK for Jimice to go home Wednesday.

In another bizarre twist, Local 6 News reported that Allen bought a lottery ticket a few days before she went into labor. The ticket numbers matched her future daughter's birth date, Local 6 News reports.
