A northwestern Iowa woman has stumbled onto an interesting way to lose weight — have a baby. A Merrill couple says they had no idea they were expecting a baby until the baby crowned. Kim Kolbeck says she felt like she had the flu so she went to her doctor. While getting a urine sample to help determine what was wrong, Kolbeck says she saw the baby crown.
The baby was born several hours later. Aspen Marie was 18 inches long and weighed six pounds, one ounce. Kolbeck and her boyfriend say she never looked pregnant. In fact, she had been losing weight through dieting and exercising.
