There was this show on a few years ago where people were talking about when they gave birth when they had no idea they were pregnant. That notion boggle my mind entirely, but what boggles my mind more is the idea that you have some other organism in your body and thinking that you are pregnant.

A woman has given birth, not to a human child but to a giant tapeworm, at Kyushu Central Hospital last night reports the Tokyo Sunshine News. Yukiko Kunitake, a 38-year Fukuoka native, gave birth to a 7.7-meter long tapeworm that had apparently parasitized her body for up to 16 years believe experts.

The woman who was in excruciating pain and who believed she was in labor even underwent an epidural anesthesia to relieve the pain. The 482-pound woman said she had no idea the parasite was in her body and burst into tears when she learned she wasn’t pregnant at all.

“I thought it was my baby’s umbilical cord, but they kept pulling and pulling and nothing came out,” she told reporters in tears.

The young 38-year-old woman and her husband were devastated to learn she was, in fact, not pregnant. “Everybody said I was too fat to carry a child, I was so proud to prove them wrong,” she said, visibly disheartened.

“I should’ve realized something was fishy when she told me she still had her periods,” her husband told reporters. “She was really moody and would cry for no reason at all. She was also feeling really tired all the time and was always hungry. I was 100% sure that she was pregnant,” admitted her husband.

The dangers of eating raw pork

Mrs. Kunitake’s doctor believes she probably ingested raw pork at the sushi bar where his patient works.

“She first thought it was because she ate a lot of sushi at work, but I told her that fish don’t carry this kind of tapeworm,” explained Dr. Arai Hashimoto to reporters.
