Surprise! Woman goes to hospital thinking she has kidney stones...but leaves with a BABY boy after finding out she was 38 weeks pregnant

Stephanie Jaegers got the surprise of her life when she went to the hospital with abdominal pains and left with a baby boy named Shaun (pictured), not knowing she was pregnant

This is a woman who was told she couldn't get pregnant after her third child. She is peri-menopausal. There was no pregnancy symptom, she didn't miss any period... Whatever you have been told by man, never forget that only baba God has the final answer.
One Georgia woman went to the hospital with what she believed were kidney stones, and left with a newborn baby. 
Stephanie Jaegers got the surprise of her life when doctors at Piedmont Henry Hospital in Stockridge informed her she was 38 weeks pregnant. 
And, they added, the baby was coming - in 30 minutes.  

Stephanie, who had been suffering from abdominal pains, had immediately said no when

doctors first asked her if there was a chance she was pregnant.
There had been no morning sickness, no weight gain. Earlier that year, Stephanie had been diagnosed with pre-menopause. She hadn't missed a single period. 
The doctors began preparing Stephanie for a CAT scan, but when one examined her stomach he ordered an ultrasound instead. 
'It wasn't until we heard the heartbeat that reality set in,' Stephanie's husband Michael Jaegers told WXIA. 
'There are no words to describe the range of feelings associated with being told that you're having a baby - in 30 minutes.' 
But the parents, who already had three children back home, didn't have much time the news sink in. Shaun Jude Jaegers was ready to arrive into the world.
The healthy baby boy was delivered at 3.50am on Wednesday at 7 pounds 3 oz and 19 inches long.
Doctors later told the parents that Shaun had been a breech baby throughout the entire pregnancy, meaning he was delivered feet-first rather than head-first.

The doctors began preparing Stephanie for a CAT scan, but when one examined her stomach he ordered an ultrasound instead and the parents heard Shaun's heartbeat 

The position limited Shaun's ability to move and is also the reason why Stephanie didn't 'show' during her pregnancy. 
Michael revealed on Facebook that the hospital also explained that, although a menstrual cycle is rare during pregnancy, 'it can happen'. 
Stephanie had also broken her ankle just a couple weeks before, limiting her movement as she allowed the injury to heal.     
And the mother had been told nearly three years ago that she would likely be unable to have another child after requiring a blood transfusion during the birth of her daughter.
'All of this together ruled out in our minds even the remote possibility of a pregnancy,' Michael wrote. 
Both parents admit they were at first overwhelmed when they found out that a newborn would be joining their sons, aged 16 and 11, and two-year-old daughter back home.
'I went from googling kidney stone treatments to a panic attack over the fact that not only were we pregnant, but the baby was coming within the hour,' Michael wrote. 
'Most parents have a good nine months to plan for such a blessing, we had 30 minutes notice.' 
'I cried and I was scared,' Stephanie told Inside Edition. 'We didn't know what to do.'  

 Stephanie and her husband Michael Jaegers were especially shocked because there had been no morning sickness or weight gain. She hadn't even missed a single period 

'We had started getting rid of baby stuff.' 
But there was a car seat in the attic, and the family had kept plenty of their sons' old baby clothes. 
And the boys were more than excited to help out with their new baby brother, although their little sister was having trouble adjusting to no longer being the youngest in the family. 
Stephanie and Shaun left the hospital on Friday morning and have already received tremendous support from their family, friends and community.
A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family while Stephanie's ankle continues to heal as she takes care of both Sadie and Shaun at home. 
And now that the shock of the surprise has finally worn off, the family is happily getting to know their newest bundle of joy.  
'I do believe everything is meant to be,' Stephanie said. 
'We are grateful he is here and he is a sweet little baby.'   

The parents said their two older sons, aged 16 and 11, have been happy to help with the newest addition to the family - but their two-year-old daughter is sad she is no longer the youngest
