i didn't know i was...

i didn't know i was pregnant!!

so yesterday, my cousin, we shall call her liz, went to work around 730am while munching on an energy bar, convinced that will get her through the day.  
it was thursday, but she was still a little exhausted from the bachelorette party she attended the weekend before in nashville.  

well, fast forward to approximately 1pm and liz wet herself. well, the niagara falls type of wet herself in the sense that her water broke but she had no idea because as far as she was concerned, she had no water to break, meaning, she wasn't pregnant.
well, fast forward to approximately 2pm, liz found herself at her doctors office complaining of her uterus hurting.

well, fast forward to approximately 3pm, liz found herself in a labor and delivery room with a wee baby in her hands, a surprised baby daddy, and an overly supportive family swearing to have everything ready for when new mama and new baby arrive home on saturday.  

in summary - my cousin had a baby yesterday and had no idea she was pregnant!  the baby is a very, very healthy 6 pound baby boy and she was 7 months along!  i never thought the whole "i didn't know i was pregnant" thing was possible until i heard this story.  i just saw her a few weeks ago at my sisters wedding shower and ohhh, my!  her waist was/is tiny, she never felt bad, had her period the whole time, and didn't gain much weight!

have you heard this happen in real life or just tv?!  it's so crazy but i couldn't be happier for her and her new family!  congrats eliz!  :)

i'm headed to the hospital now to meet the new little nugget and i'll post a picture later!  

have a wonderful weekend and be safe and if you have a baby with no warning, let me know!!!

Rebecca said...

my mom is a nurse and she said its super common for people to not get their periods or gain much weight while pregnant, even home pregnancy tests can come out negative! crazy!! But, did your cousin ever feel the baby kicking inside her?

That is super crazy! I've watched the show on TLC, and it seems like it is more common than anyone thinks! It sounds like they're both okay, so that's great. Congratulations!
