A Nanaimo woman who went to hospital complaining of back pain got quite the shocking diagnosis.
Not only was Josephine Anglin pregnant, she was ready to give birth.
“We kind of looked at each other and were dumbfounded,” she told Nanaimo Daily News, speaking of her fiancé.
Doctors discovered what was really going on after analyzing a urine sample, which tested positive for pregnancy. Hospital staff then quickly gave her an ultrasound, and saw that the baby was full term and ready to go.
But here’s the well, stranger part: The couple had already been trying to get pregnant, so how did they not know?
The new mom says she never experienced morning sickness or food cravings, and never felt the baby kicking. While Anglin did gain some weight, at the time she blamed it on junk food and the fact that her fiancé is a chef who cooks all the time.
OK, fine. Makes sense so far.
But then she also mentioned that she hasn’t had her period since January. You’d think that would’ve been a bit of a clue.
Nevertheless, the baby was born with no more issues than just a little fluid in her lungs. Doctors put her on an IV and antibiotics, and the baby is now doing just fine.
The couple named her “Nevaeh” — Heaven spelt backwards.
What a nice esirprus.
