Oh, I saw that this morning and the tape has been played on the news apparently - the poor child was screaming "there's a baby coming out of mum"!

What a little star! Bet she will have a great bond with her little brother.

There's a link to the audio files on the BBC site - but don't have the volume too high

Oh what a fabulous child - an absolute star! She must have been terrified! I listened to the Radio 5 interview on the BBC site, including the transcript of the call: I was so shocked to hear her voice and think she's the same age as ds1! On the interview with Radio 5 Alive she sounded absolutely lovely, so polite and considerate - what a great kid!

She was lovely, wasn't she? "I'm fine thank you, how are you?" What a sweetie.

Ooh that transcript nearly made me cry!

Oh no I had to stop listening to the audio file on the BBC, started blubbing like a girl...

I've never worked out how these "surprise mothers" don't feel the kicking.

Great story though

they were on the local news last night - what an absolute star of a girl! the emergency services operator was pretty good too - incredibly calm even when the call turned from "mum's got a sore tummy" to "there's a baby coming out of mum"

apparently the mum didn't miss any periods tho, which i guess sort of explains why she didn't realise what was going on. she did have 3 kids already tho...

Heard this tape today - made me quite tereful since same age as my daughter

SoupDragon Fri 15-Apr-05 18:50:48

Periods aside, I used to see limbs poking out of my stomach!! She didn't look overweight from the photo either which is the usual escuse given for not feeling kicks.

What bliss though - 9 months of no preg symptoms.
