Woman delivers baby by surprise

HARRODSBURG, Ky. (AP) - A 32-year-old central Kentucky woman
says she delivered her newborn son on the floor of her bathroom by
herself, including cutting the umbilical cord, then got up and
picked her other child up from school.
Kelly Bottom of Harrodsburg also stopped in at her
mother-in-law's house to show her the new bundle of joy, a baby
Bottom says came as a complete surprise until he was born Thursday.
The 32-year-old Bottom told The Advocate-Messenger she was doing
laundry about 2 p.m. Thursday when she felt some discomfort and
thought she needed to use the bathroom.
Both mother and baby were discharged from the hospital Monday
after checking in Thursday night. Bottom says the baby, named Brian
Keith Sims, weighed 7 lbs., 3 oz. when he was discharged.
