Judy Brown didn’t believe her doctor when she was told what was causing her awful stomach pains. WCVB reports on Wednesday, Brown, 47, went to Beverly Hospital in Massachusetts because she could no longer endure the severe abdominal pains she was experiencing. She thought it was a digestive issue. Oh wow, was she way off.
“It’s good news,” her doctor said. “There’s no blockage, you are pregnant.” A stunned Brown (who attributed her bulging belly to weight gain from getting older) then found out an even bigger surprise. Her baby was due at that very moment.
Carolyn Rose, an eight pound baby girl, was born on that day to Brown and her shocked husband Jason. The couple have been married for more than 22 years and never put much thought into family planning. They had to borrow a stroller and baby bassinet so they could take their daughter home.
This is also the last time the couple wants to be surprised by a baby. So they’re taking some steps to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
“I will get the surgery before it even becomes a thought,” said Jason Brown.Meanwhile, he said he has “daddy’s little girl” to dote on from now on. “When she cries, I’m there.”
