A 46-year-old woman from Las Vegas discovered she was over seven months pregnant only a day before she gave birth.
Monica Thompson said she went to a doctor after she started experiencing stomach cramps at work and thought she had the flu. But 4 hours later, she needed an emergency C-section 24 and gave birth to a baby boy, Jayden, As he weighed just 3 pounds, 9 ounces, the little boy had to stay in hospital for more than a month.
"It's just total shock. The doctor comes in and he asks, 'Do you think you might be pregnant?' I'm like, 'Haha, yeah right. There's no way. I'm too old to have children. I am probably going through menopause'," MSN quoted Thompson as saying in Inside Edition.
Thompson's little boy is now 11 months old, and happy and healthy. "God actually answered my prayer that I wanted to be a mom," Thompson said.
While clinical director, Cathryn DeLee, said that such cases are rare but not unheard of. "I have been doing labor and delivery for 27 years and it occasionally happens," she said.
