A woman got quite the surprise when she went to a hospital thinking she had kidney stones only to discover she was actually pregnant.

What are kidney stones

A kidney stone refers to a hard, crystalline mineral which forms within the kidney or urinary tract.

According to MedicineNet, this condition manifests itself in such symptoms as abdominal, groin and/or back pain.

A surprise arrival

Because abdominal and back pain are some of the symptoms of kidney stones, one can see why this woman assumed this was what ailed her when she started experiencing these symptoms.

South Dakota mom Dannette Glitz had no clue she was pregnant for several weeks. She never experienced any morning sickness and she didn't feel the movement of her babies. But somehow, her triplets arrived at 34 weeks pregnant.

In a Facebook post, Dannette said that when she suddenly started noticing pains in her back and her side, she assumed it was caused by kidney stones.

I kept pushing on till Saturday and I was in so much pain all I could do was lie in my bed and cry. It hurt to move and even breath.

When she couldn't take it anymore, she went to the hospital and was shocked when doctors told her she was 34 weeks along.

In fact, even the doctors received another surprise. They though Dannette was having twins so when the third baby came along, it was unexpected.

While speaking with KOTA-TV, Dannette said she was in shock.

I go to the doctor’s thinking I’ll have surgery for kidney stones and end up going into labor with a c-section that night. It’s crazy.

Dannette and her husband Austin happily welcomed their triplets, two boys and a girl, with each weighing about four pounds.

Internet skeptics

A few people who read Dannette story were not convinced that she had no clue she was pregnant. Some suggested that while this can happen with one baby, triplets are a whole different story.

Regardless, some commenters happily congratulated the couple.

Despite the raised eyebrows, all that matters is that Dannette and her babies are doing just fine.
