A woman named Stephanie Jaegers from Stockridge, Georgia asked her husband Michael to drive her to the hospital because she felt abdominal pains. She thought it was caused by kidney stones.

However, that was not the case.

Stephanie revealed to InsideEdition.com: "The doctors were discussing kidney stones and pain and said order a CT scan. But then he examined my stomach when I was having 'cramps' and changed his mind and did an ultrasound instead."

Stephanie and Michael were shocked when the doctors at Piedmont Henry Hospital told them that she was actually 38 weeks pregnant. They also said that her baby was coming right then and there.

Indeed, a baby boy whom they named Shaun was born just minutes after they found out he was due.

So, how did Stephanie and Michael, who have two older kids, miss the fact that she was pregnant?

The Huffington Post quoted Michael's explanation: "Steph was diagnosed with pre-menopause a while back which would justify the hormone imbalance also associated with a pregnancy. Shaun was also breech throughout the entire pregnancy which prevented him from moving around to indicate to Steph that he was in there and his position made it to where Steph didn’t 'show.'"

He added, "The most bizarre part is she continued to have a menstrual cycle, which the hospital tells us is rare, but can happen. Lastly, Steph broke her ankle a couple of weeks ago and was laid up for the last couple of weeks limiting her movements. All of this together ruled out in our minds even the remote possibility of a pregnancy."
