Katie Kropas, aged 23 from Massachusetts(USA), thought she had put on these extra weight after the excess eating over the holiday season. Little did she know that it was not the food that she has consumed that was adding on to her weight but it was a baby bump!
Katie was sent to hospital after complaining of severe back pain. She had the shocked of her life upon knowing that she was 9 months pregnant and the baby was ready to come out.
“They told me that I had a full term baby, ready to come, now,” Katie told a local CBS affiliate. “So I found out at 10:15 and I had her at 11:06.”
Katie shared that she was apparently on birth control and had pretty regular period cycles. In fact, she didn’t have morning sickness too! Even her boyfriend, Dan Keefe was surprised upon hearing the news. Both new parents thought that it was a joke that was played on them.
New parents have 9 months to prepare for the baby’s arrival but for Katie and Dan, they have just 50 minutes to digest the news. Now, both of them are trying their best to adapt to their new roles.
