WTH: Woman Pregnant For 60 Years

stone_baby stone_baby2This is indeed stranger than fiction. She is one very lucky woman, as this is what kill a lot of women, the infection would have killed them, but here is this woman that even lived for over 90 years, carrying the dead foetus and is still alive.

Stunned doctors discovered a woman complaining of stomach ache had been carrying her unborn child for 60 years. Huang Yijun, 92, of Huangjiaotan, southern China, was told by medics in 1948 that her child had died in the womb. Doctors demanded £100 to remove it, so she walked away. She said: “It was a huge sum at the time – more than the whole family earned in several years so I did nothing and ignored it.”  But the secret emerged when Huang hurt her stomach and went to hospital for a scan. Dr Liu Anbin at Qingshen hospital said: “I couldn’t believe my eyes when I discovered she had a baby in her belly. “I’ve been a doctor for more than 40 years and it’s the first time I have seen something like this.”

Now medics are carrying out further tests to see if Huang needs an operation to remove the baby. Consultant Xu Xianming, director of the Obstetrics and Gynecology department at the hospital, said: “Normally a dead foetus would decay. It’s very rare that Huang can be so healthy.”
