Well, this is the cutest “kidney stone” we’ve ever seen!
Stephanie Jaegers went to the hospital with stomach pain she thought was probably caused by kidney stones. But doctors told her she had actually been pregnant for 38 weeks, her husband Michael Jaegers told news station 11 Alive. Then the couple learned she was also due to give birth.
“There are no words to describe the range of feelings associated with being told that you’re having a baby ― in 30 minutes,” he said.
The couple’s healthy surprise baby, Shaun Jude Jaegers, was born around 4 a.m. at Piedmont Henry Hospital in Stockbridge, Georgia, the outlet reports. The proud father wrote in a Facebook post that he and his wife were preparing to fit “9 months of pre-planning into 2 days!”
They’ve encountered a lot of skepticism from people who don’t buy that anyone could really be pregnant for so long and not realize it. Michael Jaegers addressed this in a lengthy Facebook post, saying that a combination of multiple health issues made his wife’s pregnancy imperceptible:
Steph was diagnosed with pre-menopause awhile back which would justify the hormone imbalance also associated with a pregnancy. Shaun was also breech throughout the entire pregnancy which prevented him from moving around to indicate to Steph that he was in there and his position made it to where Steph didn’t “show”. The most bizarre part is she continued to have a menstrual cycle, which the hospital tells us is rare, but can happen. Lastly, Steph broke her ankle a couple of weeks ago and was laid up for the last couple of weeks limiting her movements. All of this together ruled out in our minds even the remote possibility of a pregnancy.
Too bad they missed out on the heyday of the TLC show “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant.”
