Woman who didn't know she was pregnant delivers healthy 10-lb baby
A Michigan woman reportedly traveled to Allegiance Health Friday, telling doctors she suspected she was suffering from a hernia.
Instead, she gave birth to a ten-pound baby girl.
Linda Ackley, 44, of Summit Township, Michigan, reportedly gave birth to the child after physicians determined she was pregnant.

According to Ackley, in February 2011 she contracted necrotizing fasciitis, a bacterial infection that attacks soft tissue. Her blood-sugar level was far above normal and her immune system shut down, leaving her in a coma for a week. The resulting abdominal surgery conducted in an effort to address the string of health issues convinced doctors that she would never have babies.
