There’s nothing that a nice, long hot shower can’t cure which is exactly why Des Moines, Idaho resident Brittany Young took to her tub. She had been having stomach pains all day and thought a warm shower would do her good.
Now, Brittany knew she was pregnant and she was no stranger to the condition since she has three other children. So imagine her shock when after just a few minutes in the shower, she felt the need to push and out popped Miracle, a healthy girl weighing in at 6 pounds, 8 ounces. “This baby’s eyes were open; she was just sitting there staring at me. She didn’t cry or anything. I was in shock. I was like, there’s a baby here,” Young said. She called out to her friend in the living room and asked for an ambulance. When it arrived, mother and baby were both taken to the hospital where they were checked over and given a clean bill of health.
As mentioned before, the fact that she was pregnant wasn’t the surprise – it was the timing. Brittany said when she went to a hospital in January and was told “12 weeks” by a technician but took that to mean she was 12 weeks along, not that she had 12 weeks left to go. She didn’t have anything ready for the baby at home but with three other kids, no doubt she’ll have Miracle settled in soon.
I can’t imagine giving birth like this! At least it seemed pretty quick and painless…SHARE if you like little surprises!
