I don't think it would have referred to this son in addition to the
others, rather it was talking about this particular instance of
childbirth. And yes, I did think that according to this verse all
you would know if you didn't believe in Oral Torah (that there is a
longstanding tradition of knowledge passed down orally and that G-d
actually gave Moshe Torah orally together with the written), is that
in addition to THIS daughter in THIS instance of childbirth there was
also a son, but I accept that written Torah cannot be understood
completely or correctly without Oral Torah, and I believe that our
Sages knew, by unbroken handed down tradition, correctly, what they
taught to us.

Couldn't this just mean she would have this son in addition to the others
borne to her?
