Calling All Pregnant Moms

I have a gut feelin' that some folks ain't gonna believe there's a ring of truth to this story outta Jordan, but according to the Gulf News, a 36 year old woman underwent a normal C-section last month and she and the baby went home all fine and dandy. But when her stomach started vibrating and she experienced stomach pains she went back to the hospital where an x-ray showed the gynecologist left his cell phone inside her stomach. I guess he was tryin' to take pics with a ring side seat huh? What a gutsy move on his part!

But what I'm wonderin' with this whole gut wrenching story, is whether the surgeon knew he left the cell phone inside the poor woman and didn't have the guts to admit it until she felt the ring tones? It is really hard to stomach, but do ya think there were tons of roaming charges? Can you hear me now? HEEELLLLOOOO, can you hear me now? Seriously, there could not have been good reception down in the gut.

So I'm thinkin' if any pregnant Moms out there don't wanna sign up for those pesky cell phone contracts, and have the intestinal fortitude to do so, they should give this dude a ringy dingy before the powers at be have a serious conference call about the state of his medical license and he has to resort to makin' collect calls. A free cell phone with a baby ain't such a bad deal. Just think, you can give the term "belly button ring" a whole new meaning!

Thanks Joelle for hookin' me up with this awesome story. Aren't you glad the only calls we need to worry about now are calls of nature?

  1. I'm surprised the cell phone was still working inside her. That's one kick ass piece of hardware! :)

  2. I'm just amazed she didn't know. Like, with how gigantic smartphones are today, I think I'd know if I had a brick-sized phone inside of me. I guess I could be wrong. So does the doctor throw it away and get a new one now that it's got guts on it, or just wipe it off with some paper towels and call it good?

    2. No, but who's to say that the guys phone wasn't dead. I mean, can't they think of a better place to rest their phone other then my small intestine???? Sigh!

  4. I wonder if the Dr couldn't find his phone and was calling it to listen for the ring tone! You know how we all do! LOL

  5. lmao not so good vibrations there. Maybe the dr. figured she was going to get pregnant again and just wanted to keep her hooked on the feeling?

  7. CRAZINESS!!! Hopefully it was one of the smaller flip phones that didn't take up a lot of space. I hope he doesn't make a habit of leaving phones laying around in open bodies.

  8. Maybe it was him calling the phone trying to figure out where he left it.

    1. she said that too :) because me was laughing during the surgery while she was sucking the fat from me during liposuction and she was like 'Dezzy, you is so crazy, I've never had a patient laugh during the atrociously painful surgery' and then we all laughed while me was laying there cut open with her scraping my ribs with her scalpels LOL.... I know... me needs help.... 'tis better to laugh than cry

  10. It's crazy how many of these cell phone stories we hear all the time. Don't doctors have a locker at the hospital to keep their things?

    1. I can understand an instrument or a sponge being left inside someone. But a cellphone? Nope, you got me there.

  11. You're hysterical. I'm loving your joke about roaming charges. Just think, there will soon come a day when the fetus can order pizza - free delivery?!

    WHAT!

  13. Oh my good gosh, no. This whole mobile phone way that some live is way out of hand. What a nutty story. At least the ringer was still on, and wow, on that phone working, inside of her. Yikes.
