Story: I didn't know I was pregnant! I know it's crazy. But it happened to me, and I was super-shocked and scared all at the same time.
I checked myself into the emergency room because my stomach was cramping up. I knew something was wrong. When I finally got checked in, they told me I was pregnant. My boyfriend and I were completely shocked. The first thing that came into mind was if abortion was an option. Not that we were going to abort her, we just wanted to see if it was an option. We obviously were shocked and scared. The doctor told me no, that was out of the question, because I was very, very far long and the baby was very big. I asked her, how long? She said from what it looks like, about 36-38 weeks! As a woman, I know what a full-term pregnancy is. My boyfriend didn't understand.
The doctor then checked my cervix and told me I was dilating and that I might have the baby tonight. NOT only did I just find out I was pregnant, but that I might give birth. The doctor sent me up to the birth center, where we found the sex of the baby (a girl) and heard her heartbeat. They decided to admit me, because my contractions were crazy. I ended up having my daughter the next day at midnight. It's a story that I could tell millions and I definitely can't wait to tell my daughter. She is a miracle baby and she was meant to be living on this Earth.
