Woman goes into E.R. for stomach pains, leaves with surprise baby

GREENCASTLE, Ind. - An Indiana woman went into the E.R. Friday night expecting to have an emergency appendectomy after she had a sudden onset of severe stomach pains. Instead of surgery, she ended up with a surprise baby boy.

"We were in the E.R. and they thought maybe she had gallstones. (The doctor) said, 'We'll take her back,' and then a few minutes later her water burst everywhere," New father Josh Cox told TheIndyChannel.com.

Batchelor is a factory worker said her body showed no signs of pregnancy other than some weight gain and lower back pain from being on her feet all day.

"I had weight gain but it was my normal winter-time weight gain," Batchelor said. "I was shocked. Very shocked."

Batchelor gave birth that night to a healthy, full-term baby boy weighing in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces, TheIndyChannel.com reported.

Batchelor, who already had two children, thought she was done having children and discarded her baby items and furniture in December. Friends and family have scrambled to help them get some baby supplies and were understandably stunned with the news.

Cox and Batchelor named their surprise son after Cox's great-grandfathers.

"General Lee is my mom's grandpa and then Jacob was my dad's grandpa. So both my great-grandpas, I just put them together, plus I have a General Lee car, so it just all worked out," Cox said.
