A woman has shared how she gave birth to twins without knowing that she was pregnant.
Annie Tupou from Victoria said her body had not changed but she was always tired, 9News reported.
But when the mother of eight went for a doctor’s appointment, she discovered that she was already six months pregnant.
About a week after she was informed about her pregnancy, Annie went into labor at her Mornington Peninsula home.
“I had recently posted last week about tying my tubes after baby number nine as I literally found out a week and a half ago I was pregnant, and I was finding out this Thursday what I was having at my ultrasound,” she wrote on Facebook.
“Well I never made it to my ultrasound did I.”
When Annie went into labor, she first thought that she was having Braxton Hicks contractions. But she immediately realized that she was already giving birth.
“I reached down and my baby girl’s head was half out!!!” she wrote.
“I got into midwife mode as my hubby was in Sydney for work, I got blankets and towels … and Twin A slid out straight away coming into this world at 3:45 am.”
Emergency services arrived and rushed the mother to Frankston Hospital where she discovered that she has another child.
Twin B was delivered two hours after the first and the babies were moved to Monash Children’s Hospital for monitoring.
In an interview with Channel 9, Annie said: “It will be a long road to recovery but they’re here and now I have 10 kids under 10, five boys and five girls – my family is complete.”
