Surprise! January 30, 2009

I saw an article on the MSN home page about a lady in California this week that gave birth to octuplets. As if that wasn’t overwhelming enough; during the birth, she had a bit of a surprise! Check this out!

The woman and her doctors were actually expecting seven children, not eight. The delivery team was thinking the hard work was over after that seventh baby was removed from the womb, when another physician spotted another little hand, Maples said.
The mother reacted calmly to the news, said Dr. Jalil Riazi, an anesthesiologist. “Her question was, ‘Really, an eighth baby? How did we miss that baby?'” he said.

Can you imagine?!? I think I get overwhelmed!

    i can’t imagine………where do these people get help from? Nobody ever volunteers to keep my 4? asking my parents 2 watch 8, they would probably move to Florida.

    it’s pretty amazing that all eight of those babies survived the birthing process

    I read this morning that she has 6 other children at home. And lives with her parents? Now that’s even crazier!
