THE BROWNS

A couple from Beverly, Massachusetts, had a remarkable experience that changed their lives most unexpectedly and left them at a severe loss for words. Judy and Jason Brown couldn't have dreamed of what 2015 had in store. 

It all began when the then-47-year-old Judy experienced terrible pain in her stomach. Initially, she hoped that the pain would subside with time, but to her utter dismay, it only intensified.

THE GROWING STOMACH PAINS

The more she waited, the more severe her abdominal pain became. She told her husband she needed to go to the hospital when she couldn't take it anymore and sought medical advice and a proper diagnosis. Judy and Jason went straight to Beverly Hospital in Beverly, Massachusetts.

Judy recalled that she attributed her growing stomach to weight gain and all her body's physical changes given her age. She said she even thought her bulging belly had something to do with her entering menopause.

Dr. Kimberly Gecsi, an obstetrician and gynecologist at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, explained that some women don't realize they are pregnant until shortly before labor.

A SURPRISING NEWS

The woman explained that she was suffering from severe abdominal pain and the doctors immediately started examining her. According to WCVB, Judy also thought the pain was caused by a blockage or gall stone. 

After a physical exam, the Browns said they received a piece of surprising news — one they never thought they would hear. According to Judy, the doctors told her: 

"It's good news, you don't have any blockages or anything. You are pregnant - and you are going to have her now."

The Beverly couple stared at the medical staff in utter disbelief, thinking that perhaps they had misdiagnosed Judy. Moreover, Judy admitted it was the last diagnosis she expected because the mere idea of it was incredibly baffling. She told ABC News:

"It was a little bit scary getting into the hospital thinking something really bad was going on. To understand and take in that was I pregnant and was about to go into labor … it was very overwhelming."

WELCOME TO THE WORLD, BABY CAROLYN

Almost an hour later, Judy gave birth to a healthy eight-pound, two-ounce baby girl. She and her husband of 22 years welcomed Carolyn Rose, named after the couple's mothers, into their lives most unusually. 

In an interview with the news outlet WCVB, the new dad cradled his daughter while the new mom lovingly gazed at her beautiful family. It was the biggest surprise of their lives and one they never thought they would embrace this way.

A SURREAL EXPERIENCE

The surreal birth experience was just about as shocking for Jason as for his wife. According to Judy, Rose quickly became "daddy's little girl" and didn't want to let him go. Jason confessed: 

"I feel like I am still going to wake up in the emergency room and say: 'Hey, this is only a dream. It felt so real.'"

Meanwhile, the Browns admitted that after being married for more than two decades, they didn't think they would embrace parenthood at a much later stage in their lives. Judy expressed: 

"After being married for 22 years, it really wasn’t coming up being pregnant. It was not really there in my mind."

MAKING PREPARATIONS

Dr. Kimberly Gecsi, an obstetrician and gynecologist at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, explained that some women don't realize they are pregnant until shortly before labor.

According to WCVB, the Browns borrowed a bassinet and a stroller to take their little princess home as their loved ones worked to help them get things ready for the surprise arrival.
