36 year old Allison Noyce was told she could never have
children naturally after going through the menopause aged
20, so when she went to the doctor with stomach pains 15
years later, she was astonished to learn that she was
pregnant and the baby was due within days.
The 36-year-old was afraid she had cancer when she felt
pain and found a lump in her stomach. Instead, medics told
her she was eight months pregnant, and just 12 days later
she gave birth to daughter Sophie, who weighed 6lb 4oz.
Mrs Noyce said:
‘Sophie is truly a miracle. We simply

couldn’t believe it when doctors said I was
not only pregnant but so close to delivery.’
‘Around the same time I noticed pains in my
tummy, and over the past few weeks, I had
thought I could feel a lump. Terrified, I
booked an appointment with my GP.’
Her doctor believed the lump was ‘probably a large cyst’
and quickly sent Mrs Noyce to hospital for tests.
She was sure pregnancy was not a possibility because at
the age of 30, after marrying her husband Richard, she had
gone back to the doctor’s to double check that she would
never conceive naturally.
She recalled:
‘Richard and I were worried it was
something serious. So we were overcome
with emotion when the woman doing an
ultrasound said I was eight months
pregnant. Relief that it wasn’t cancer and
sheer joy that we were having a baby.
‘We were also in shock when a midwife
arrived to discuss birthing arrangements I
thought I was dreaming.
‘In hindsight I’d had other signs, but put
morning sickness down to a virus and
tiredness down to being busy.’

Nothing is too big for God to do, so be hopeful
