North American claimed not to know she was pregnant; she arrived at the hospital in labor with contractions and 4 cm dilated.
Dannette Glitz, from Sturgis, USA, did not know she was pregnant. She arrived at the emergency room in Denver, USA, with sᴇᴠᴇʀᴇ ʙᴀᴄᴋ ᴘᴀɪɴ. She thought it was related to a ᴋɪᴅɴᴇʏ sᴛᴏɴᴇ, and ended up giving birth to not just one, but three babies.
Dannette said that she didn’t have any sʏᴍᴘᴛᴏᴍs of pregnancy, and she didn’t even feel the children moving. “Until I started experiencing sᴇᴠᴇʀᴇ ʙᴀᴄᴋ ᴘᴀɪɴ, it felt like ᴋɪᴅɴᴇʏ sᴛᴏɴᴇ. The ᴘᴀɪɴ remained and got worse, to the point that I couldn’t get out of bed. It hurt to breathe,” she said.
Believing the theory, when she arrived, the American was stunned to discover that she was 34 weeks pregnant with triplets. “You don’t see a natural pregnancy with triplets every day and even more so from someone who is 34 weeks and didn’t know it!” she added.
When examined by an obstetrician, it was found that she was already 4 cm dilated. “So I was put in an ambulance and transferred to a maternity hospital.”
On arriving there, the dilation was 6 cm, but not enough for natural childbirth. Danette was taken to the operating room and underwent a C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ. The babies were born healthy, according to information published on their page. There are two girls and a boy named Blaze, Gypsi and Nikki.
“Yesterday I was a mother of two children. Today I woke up as a mother of five,” she recalls.
The babies were healthy despite the fact that Danette drank alcohol during pregnancy and endured heavy things.
