A woman from South Dakota by the name of Dannette Giltz thought she was having kidney stone pain. When she rushes to the hospital, doctors inform her that she is actually going into labor and about to give birth to triplets! Surprise?
All babies ended up being born within four minutes, each one weighing in around 4 lbs on August 10th, 2019. Dannette says she honestly has no idea she was even pregnant. Dannette’s family already consists of her husband and 4 other children. These triplets total up 7!
Dannette recalls the shocking moment she finds out she’s actually pregnant
“I started getting pains, I figured it was kidney stones because I’ve went through them before,” Dannette recalls. “You don’t ever see triplets being conceived naturally, let alone going 34 weeks without knowing. So, everyone’s like I can’t believe it. We’re still in shock, trust me,” she adds.
Dannette says she was truly in shock going into the hospital getting ready for kidney stone surgery one minute, then getting ready for a C-section the next minute. Despite this, Dannette says the whole family is so grateful. She says she could not have done this without her support system, her family.
Dannette says that even strangers have reached out and have donated to help out with baby supplies. “It’s amazing in a small town how many people will come together for stuff that’s not expected,” Dannette says.
One of Dannette’s friends has even started a fundraising campaign on Facebook to help raise money for the family. All the money will be given to Dannette’s family to be put towards supplying for the surprise babies!
Congratulations to the growing family!
