Before she and her fiance, Brian Westerfield, made it to the hospital, baby Oliver James was born. He was 19.9 inches long and weighed 5.27 pounds.
Amerson told the News Journal that she was just as surprised that Sunday morning as everyone else.
She already has a child, and said both times while pregnant, she didn’t experience typical symptoms or gain much weight.
"I gained a little bit of weight, but I think with my first baby I didn't notice either," she told the News Journal. "I never gained that pregnancy shape, really. And then, I wear scrubs to work because I work at a retirement home for Alzheimer's and dementia patients. So I guess the way they fit me, as well, it was hard to notice anything or tell anything."
Amerson said she’s staying away from Chinese food.
"I think I'm traumatized from Chinese food," she told the News Journal. "I don't know if I'll ever be able to look at it the same way again."
