South Dakota mom Danette Giltz thought she and her husband, Austin, were done having kids after their son and daughter were born. So when she started having stomach pain, she assumed it was kidney stones (which she had before) and rushed to the hospital for treatment. Imagine her surprise when doctors told her she was actually 34 weeks pregnant and going into labor … and about to have twins!
It gets crazier. Glitz got a bigger surprise during her c-section when docs delivered not two, but three babies. Life changed forever for the Giltz family in the course of about four minutes, when they went from being a family of four to a family of seven. Mom and babies are doing well, despite not knowing the babies were on the way. Dad named his triplets - two girls and a boy - Blaze, Gypsy, and Nikki and they are each healthy and weighed around four-pounds at birth.
"You don't ever see triplets being conceived naturally, let alone going 34 weeks without knowing," Danette says. “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.”
