Woman Finds Out She's Pregnant, Gives Birth Next Day

Woman Finds Out She's Pregnant, Gives Birth Next Day

By    |   Friday, 13 September 2019 01:07 PM

A 46-year-old Nevada woman who had given up hopes of ever becoming a mother gave birth a day after discovering she was pregnant.

It all happened so fast for Monica Thompson from Las Vegas, who had been trying to get pregnant for 16 years until her husband died in 2016. She managed to find love again and is now engaged to Jason Ratliff, but they never allowed themselves to think about what it would be like to have children together.

That all changed when Thompson found herself in the doctor's rooms after suffering from severe cramps.

"The doctor comes in and he asks, 'Do you think you might be pregnant?'" she told Inside Edition. "I'm like, 'Haha, yeah right. There's no way. I’m too old to have children. I am probably going through menopause.'"

So when the pregnancy test confirmed she was over seven months pregnant, Thompson was shocked.

"It's like hitting a brick wall," she said. "'You are having a baby now.'"

It was just 24 hours later that Thompson was wheeled into theater to undergo an emergency C-section. 

Her son Jayden was welcomed into the world weighing 3 pounds, 9 ounces. For precautionary measures he had to stay in hospital under close supervision for a month but now, 11 months later, Jayden is happy and healthy and Thompson is finally experiencing all the joys of motherhood.

"I think it's extra special to become a mom at this age," she said, according to DailyMail.com. "Of course I would like to have been younger, but I know more now. I just feel very grateful that I have the chance to be a mom when I had given up on that dream."
