2 days after docs give woman laxatives for 'severe stomach pain' she finds out TRUE CAUSE of distress
Juliana Brasileiro, 25, claimed she had gone to a doctor earlier who gave her laxatives as she was in so much pain that she 'couldn't stand'
RIO De JANEIRO, BRAZIL: A woman shokingly found she was pregnant and gave birth to her second child after complaining of a stomach ache. According to online news portal G1, Juliana Brasileiro felt she had a stomach ache after going to the theater with her husband, Juan Tostes, and friends on October 9 in Rio de Janeiro. The 25-year-old opted to take over-the-counter medication to ease the pain after finishing her monthly cycle. The pain was so severe, according to Brasileiro, that the next day she ended up going to a nearby urgent care center open around-the-clock.
"I couldn't stand. I could only lie on the floor. I was in so much pain," Brasileiro recalled. She claimed it took her five hours to see a doctor, who diagnosed her with severe gas accumulation and gave her a laxative prescription. She visited her gynecologist on October 11 after the agony persisted, as suggested by her mother-in-law, and was shocked to learn that she was 40 weeks pregnant, according to The Daily Mail.
Brasileiro claimed that the doctor advised her to head straight to an emergency room because she was both pregnant and giving birth, G1 reported. She traveled with Tostes to Albert Schweitzer Hospital, where she gave birth to Marina, a healthy baby girl. "Daughter, you are still too young to understand the world in which you fell from your parachute... it came quietly, and showed that life is literally a little box of surprises. I never imagined having 2 children, and at ages very close. I didn't think that my life would turn upside down and that the inside out was the right side. You came to bring our family together, and to show that if we have our family, we have EVERYTHING!" she wrote on Instagram and posted her daughter's picture.
"It was 4 days and nights without eating and sleeping," her post continued. "I can’t stop talking about how brave his daddy was, and how essential he’s been these last few days. He stood by us all the time, and knew that in the end everything would be alright. And it was... You are living proof that all of us' fate is already drawn, and that life can surprise us anytime! You were inside me the whole time, growing for 40 weeks with absolutely no doubt of your existence."
Since they never had time to organize a baby shower, the financially challenged parents turned to the Brazilian crowdfunding platform Vakinha in the hopes that well-wishers would assist them in paying for diapers and other baby supplies.
