WHOA BABY!!!!

So how about 33 year old Trish Staine from Duluth, Minn who ran for 2 hours last Sunday in preparation for a 1/2 marathon, had a sore back that evening, thought the pain was from hard core training, went to the ER, and out popped a 6 pound 6 ounce baby girl the next day? She says she had no idea she was preggers because she didn't gain any weight, nor did she feel any fetal movement. Oh yea and the real kicker is her husband had a vasectomy. She and her husband John have 2 children, and she is the stepmother to John's 3 kids from a previous relationship, so she thought she was dun birthin' babies.

Besides the powerful force called denial that is obviously in effect here, I say either John's urologist is in serious trouble or she is!!!!!!

  2. Oh boy- I have read about this and have also watched the show on TV about women say they didn't know they were pregnant. Having had three kids myself, I just can't fathom how this is at all possible. Like you said, denial is obviously in full effect here! Dang.

    1. PS I once watched a show about a woman who also didn't know she was pregnant and popped the baby into the toilet thinking she was only pooping..... imagine the surprise....

  6. I had a neighbor when I was younger who went to the doctor because she thought she had a tumor and came back with a baby.

  7. I read about that last week. You would think there would have been some signs, but as runners often have odd cycles due to low body fat and being in extreme shape- it all sounds logical and possible. Plus I have heard of the body reversing the effects of the big V of days of yore. Now they no longer use plastic clips of tubals or just snip them sewing them shut- its cauterized closed with a better percentage of effectiveness and no reversals ever.

  8. I have heard of this type of thing before, but I don't understand it at all. How? Especially a thin runner. There is no room for a baby to get lost. Yup, denial.

  9. I wondered about this story when I first came across it. Very interesting. There's more to this story, I'm sure.

  11. John (as he looks intently at Trish, and in the most serious tone): "Well, don't you just Hate It When THAT Happens???"

    Yikes!!!

  12. I never could understand these women who have no clue they are pregnant. What the hell do they think that movement inside is--gas bubbles??? Obviously this woman is NOT in tune with her. body!!

  13. This just in: baby bears a striking resemblance to their local UPS carrier. In fact, John Jr. came out wearing a little brown outfit. Coincidence?

  14. My jaw hit the floor when I read that story. The woman was on The Today Show talking about this as well. Crazy...I am not surprised about the botched vasectomy as that happens from time to time. I had a tubal ligation and found out the doctor didn't do both tubes. OOPPSIE!!!

    It's hard to imagine a baby going unnoticed for an entire pregnancy.

  15. A vasectomy which didn't take?
    Uh oh.

  16. I don't get it. I've seen this kinda thing on tv. No weight gain? No frequent urination? No period? No craving canned chili and donut holes? No way. These women are mutants.

  17. I actually know of someone who had a baby - by her snipped boyfriend (I was going to use "vasectomized boyfriend" but it sounds too much like victimized). Apparently it's a one in a thousand thing to have a vasectomy spontaneously reverse itself.
