I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS PREGNANT (SEASON 4) #18 - BABY IN THE KITCHEN

At the age of 40, Gisele and her husband are raising their 12-year-old adopted son. They have long since accepted that Gisele is unable to have biological children due to a hormone imbalance. After weeks of numerous health problems with no improvement and almost a 90-pound weight gain, she's given a much more serious diagnosis of congestive heart failure. Then, just days after being released from the hospital, Gisele is back in the ER, this time with extreme abdominal pain. The diagnosis she gets now is the last thing she's expecting - she's pregnant and in labor and she didn't even know she was pregnant. Twenty-two-year-old Anna has an IUD inserted after giving birth to her daughter and is told it will prevent her and her boyfriend from having kids for 5 years. Anna quickly adjusts to motherhood and in the process loses 10 pounds from chasing around a toddler. When she wakes up one night to use the restroom, she's stopped in her tracks by a sudden pain in her side. Just seconds later, she can't believe her eyes when a baby slides down her leg and lands on her kitchen floor.

Shortly after the honeymoon, Renee thinks she's getting a kidney infection when she begins experiencing strong back pains. She goes to the hospital and finds out she's actually 8 months pregnant - even though she was taking the birth control shot. Convinced the doctor has made a mistake, she's determined to get a second opinion the next day, but suddenly wakes up that night in labor. Brittany is a college student with a part-time job and figures that her tiredness and back pain is simply a symptom of being overworked. But on New Year's Eve, she's feeling so rundown that she cancels her plans and stays home by herself, hoping to finally get some rest. She is unable to sleep due to pain that gets worse and worse. Little does she know that she's about to go into labor and give birth to a baby!

Now this stay-at-home mom will try to elevate her game and spend only $10 for a month's worth of groceries. In Indiana, 20 year old college student Tyler gets $100 a month to spend on food.
