This woman’s ‘pregnancy’ turned out to be something much worse

A growing belly is not the same as a baby bump. A 22-year-old had to go through this painful experience when she received her diagnosis.

22-year-old Hollie Welham, thought she was pregnant, and why wouldn’t she? She had all the symptoms indicating a pregnancy, a growing belly and even nausea. But when she took a pregnancy test it came negative and shocked her. What was the reason?

Bump but no baby

All signs pointed to Hollie being pregnant; the young woman even complained of regular nausea. But then a visit to the doctor revealed the terrible truth, as reported by

The British woman was shocked when, instead of the happy news of a healthy baby, the doctor gave her a terrible diagnosis during an ultrasound: she is not carrying an embryo in her stomach, but a cyst.

Ovarian cyst bigger than a soccer ball

The ovarian cyst had already grown to a dangerous size. She fixed an appointment for an operation. Her cyst was 27 centimetres in size, making it larger than a soccer ball. On TikTok, the young woman showed her growing belly, explaining her diagnosis and the operation. She says:

I couldn't believe how big my belly had gotten - I looked like I was nine months old. I felt so uncomfortable, but I'm incredibly glad they discovered the cyst.

Pregnancy is still possible

Luckily, the doctors also gave the young woman hope. In any case, she still has one healthy ovary and thus the possibility of a real pregnancy. She said:

It shouldn't affect my fertility too much either. You can have children with one ovary, it just might take longer.
