Man's pregnancy claim sparks media firestorm
March 27: Is it true? Is it possible? Thomas Beatie of Bend, Ore., says "yes" to both questions, claiming he's five months pregnant. But is his claim real, or a hoax? KTVZ reports.
LOS ANGELES - Thomas Beatie, who was born a woman but lives as a man in Oregon after surgery and hormone treatment, is expecting a second child, Beatie has told Barbara Walters in an interview set to air on television on Friday.
Beatie, 34, who is legally a man but kept female reproductive organs when he had a sex-change operation 10 years ago, is in his first trimester of pregnancy, he told celebrity interviewer Walters for the ABC news program "20/20" that will air on Nov. 14. Walters highlighted the interview on her daytime chat show, "The View," on Thursday.
With his thin beard, Beatie made headlines around the world and was dubbed the "pregnant man" before giving birth to a baby girl on June 29. He told Walters that after giving birth he did not go back on the male hormone testosterone that he took after his sex change because he wanted to have another baby.

"I feel good," Beatie told Walters. "I had my checkups with my hormone level, as far as the hCG. And everything is right on track."
Beatie was referring to human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone which is produced in women during pregnancy
