I gave birth 48 hours after finding out I was pregnant – I thought I was just tired from my new job | The Sun

A WOMAN was left shocked after giving birth 48 hours after finding out she was pregnant with her first child.

Peyton Stover, a 23-year-old teacher from Nebraska, had just started a new job, and thought she was just tired from new role.

Peyton revealed she had gone to the doctors after her legs started to swell, and it was at this point that she discovered she was expecting a baby with boyfriend Travis Koesters.

She told local news outlet KETV that the doctor had done two pregnancy tests on her to confirm, and the second was "definitely positive".

She then had an ultrasound to confirm the news, and Peyton added: “She looked right at the screen and said, ‘You’re definitely pregnant’.”

The medical staff had to act fast as the expecting mum’s kidneys and liver were not functioning correctly, and she was immediately admitted to hospital.

Peyton added that she had “severely high blood pressure” which was “very scary”, and doctors informed her she’d be having the baby almost immediately.

She had an emergency C-section and their baby son Kash was born weighing four pounds and was 10 weeks premature.

It was later confirmed Peyton had suffered from pre-eclampsia, which can lead to high blood pressure during pregnancy.

She said: “If I wouldn’t have came in when I did I probably wouldn’t have made it through the weekend.”
