A woman who had no idea she was pregnant freaked out after giving birth to her baby while on the toilet.
38-year-old Melissa Surgecoff is a proud Massachusetts mother who thought she was merely having menstrual cramps when she went into labor while at her home together with her partner, 37-year-old Donnie Campbell.
As her pain increased, Melissa urged her fiancé to call 911 thinking her unusual pain was actually a sign of kidney stones.
While sitting on the toilet and battling the pain, the unsuspecting mom gave birth to a baby boy whom, as she admitted, she first mistook for an organ.
According to Melissa, she “freaked out” when baby Liam came to the world because she had no idea that she was pregnant and that she and Donnie had a child on the way.
“I was screaming, I was trying not to be loud like I didn’t know what this was,” the mom recalled in an interview with Today.
“I look in the toilet and I still didn’t know what it was. I thought I basically lost an organ because I didn’t know! I’m screaming, I’m freaking out, I’m in shock.”
Once Donnie joined his fiancée in the bathroom to see what’s going on, he initially thought his son was a pile of poop. After taking a closer look, however, he realized what had just happened and went on to pick up their baby and clean him up.
“We were just kind of in shock and not expecting it, and all the sudden there’s a baby in the toilet,” Donnie said.
After taking the baby to the hospital, the new parents were reassured that Liam is healthy and doing just fine.
Following the surprise birth, Melissa admitted she should have known she was pregnant because the signs were all there. As she insisted, she thought her missing period was part of her irregular cycle. She also dismissed her weight gain thinking it was all due to lockdown and less activity.
“So if you look back on it now, yeah, there are clear-cut signs. Like my feet were swollen… My shoulders and upper body were swollen and just like, you know, gaining weight,” Melissa added.
