14 YO Thought She Has a Stomachache… Then Suddenly Gave Birth Instead

Nowadays we’re hearing quite a number of strange encounters on the internet.

From a guy who went wild after being rejected from a Tinder date to a loan shark who transferred money to a wrong account (and demanded the money to be returned).

For today’s article, we see a 14-year-old teenager giving birth to a baby girl after complaining of a stomachache.

Here are the details

This incident happened on Bintulu, a coastal town on the island of Borneo in the central region of Sarawak, Malaysia.

On 26 December, the 14-year-old school dropout told her parents that she was having a upset tummy so she was brought to Bintulu Hospital.

But they were in for a shock because she was not suffering from a stomachache but was pregnant instead. This news was broken to them by the doctor.

 

After being in labor, she then gave birth to a baby girl the following day on 27 December, who is believed to be in healthy condition.

Next steps

Since she was underage, the hospital alerted the police the same day.

According to Bintulu police chief Superintendent Zulkipli Suhaili, the girl claimed that she didn’t even know that she was pregnant.

But she admitted to having sexual intercourse with her then-boyfriend, a man in his 20s, at his home. Worse still, the father of the baby has since moved to another village and they have lost contact.

Superintendent Zulkipli Suhaili said that the police have identified the man and are in the midst of tracking him down.

“We expect to make an arrest soon,” he adds.

Similar cases around the world

It seems like this ‘stomachache pregnancy’ ain’t an isolation.

In 2015, 24-year-old Rachel Harvey was rushed to hospital after her stomach pains left her squirming in agony.

When a nurse at Lichfield Hospital asked Rachel if she could be pregnant, she dismissed the idea saying, “The thought I could be pregnant never crossed my mind. There were no signs whatsoever, I was still having periods as normal.”

She later then gave birth to a healthy baby boy weighing 6lb 1oz after being in labor for about 10 minutes.

In that same year, a cloistered nun in Italy stunned her sisters after giving birth to a baby boy. This time round, it comes as no surprise for she too, complained of severe stomach pains.

And again, bearing a striking similarity to the previous cases, this nun also claimed that she had no idea she was pregnant when she was rushed to hospital, after which she gave birth.

I’m sure there are more of such stories accumulated over the years and for ladies who are wondering:

Yes, you can still get your period while you’re pregnant. It could be due to:

Implantation bleeding

While implantation bleeding varies from woman to woman, it can be mistaken as one having a period. This is so especially when you’re the sort that usually goes through a light period.

In short, you might think that spotting was your period. But just remember that whatever the case, if you’re experiencing heavy flow, it is not implantation bleeding.

Sporadic bleeding

Some women do experience sporadic bleeding during the first few months of their pregnancy, which they then mistook it for a period.

This form of bleeding could be due to (but not limited to) cervical changes, sex, placenta problems, carrying multiples or infection.

But then again, to round this up, you technically cannot have menstruation while pregnant, because your uterine lining is not entirely shed along with the egg or it would be a case of miscarriage.

Do consult a gynaecologist if you’re unsure.
