Who's the Daddy??
A 31 year old white female presented with chest pain. Her heart rate was very fast, and it was determined she had SVT. She needed to be admitted to the hospital. No biggy.
Until...the pregnancy test came back positive. I went to go tell her the news (didn't know if it was going to be good or bad news for her). Her boyfriend was in the room. After I told her she was pregnant, her and her boyfriend had a long, entertained, Jerry Springer like discussion trying to figure out who the father was.
The lady was trying to become a surrogate mother. She had been inseminated AND had been having sex with the boyfriend (I bet that's not allowed when you are trying to be someones surrogate), so it was going to be impossible to figure out who was the daddy without DNA.
To top things off...she was a chain smoker and her drug screen was positive for marijuana, opiates, and benzo's.
Lesson to be learned: choose your surrogates closely.
