A 23 yo female arrived through triage with a chief complaint of "vaginal bleeding and lower abdominal pain."
The paramedic put the patient in a wheel chair and placed her into one the examination rooms. After he helped her into bed, she started to scream and breath faster. He looked down towards her vagina and noticed a baby's head coming out!
The patient insisted that her last period was two weeks ago and that it was "impossible that she was pregnant." Her belly really didn't look that big and pregnant either.
I heard on the speakers... "Doc Sensitive to room 29 immediately."
When I arrived to the room the baby was crowning. I pushed down and up... and out pops a full term infant! The mother was in shock. She swears she had no idea she was pregnant, nor did she know who the baby's father was.
After looking through the records the next day, I learned she named the baby girl "Surprise."
