Miracle Birth - Live Octopus

Emily, a teenager from California, was obviously pregnant. Her stomach was protruding; she had morning sickness, the works. She, however, tearfully insisted to her parents that there was no way she could be pregnant. She had never 'done it' with a boy so it just wasn't possible.

It was fairly obvious Emily was pregnant. The signs weren't lying. Her stomach kept growing; she had a large appetite, as well as other common symptoms. Her family was convinced she was pregnant. She kept arguing that she was a virgin so it was impossible.

Finally, Emily convinced her parents to take her to the doctor to check things out. X-rays were taken and the results proved Emily wasn't lying. She had a large tumor in her stomach and surgery was performed immediately. To everyone's astonishment the surgeons didn't remove a tumor, but a small, live octopus that had fastened itself to the lining of Emily's stomach.

Okay, now you're thinking she's a freak - that's crazy! But the craziest part is - it's happened before. Octopus eggs are microscopic in size and laid in clusters of tens of thousands. Usually, they stick to kelp on the bottom of the ocean by a sticky goo. It isn't surprising that a few escape and float to the surface where the chance of being swallowed by an unsuspecting swimmer is possible. Anyway, don't scoff, because Emily is my friend's boyfriend's cousin.

If you were horrified to read about the choking doberman in last week's Believe It or Not, you will be happy to know that the story wasn't true.

If you change your diet to a healthy balanced diet, you may be fine. But, always consult your doctor before changing your diet. Also, if you excercise more, that will help.
