Linda Ackley went to Allegiance Health Friday morning thinking she had a hernia.
By Friday night, she gave birth to a 10-pound baby.

"Some people have nine months to prepare. I had (15) hours," her husband, Mike, told the Jackson Citizen Patriot on Monday.

Unaware of her pregnancy until the day she delivered, Linda Ackley, 44, of Summit Township underwent an emergency C-section on Friday.

Kimberly Kay Ackley, the couple's first child, was born at 11:20 p.m. She is normal and healthy, and weighed 10 pounds, 1 ounce, Mike and Linda Ackley said.

The girl and her mother were discharged from the hospital Monday afternoon.
