Mom Gives Birth To Son After Scans Told Her Twice She's Having a Girl | 22 Words

A new mom that had prepared everything for the arrival of her baby girl, got a huge surprise after she gave birth...

 

Welcoming a child into the world is an amazing experience.

The whole thing is magical, and it is something that truly releases the inner warriors in women after the grueling 9 months of pregnancy.

The labor isn't so magical, however...

The labor of childbirth is known for being one of the most painful things that the human body can experience.

A combination of intense muscle tightening, abdomen cramps, pain in the torso and pelvic area, back pain, contractions from the uterus...

And eventually, pushing out a baby, it's certainly no walk in the park.

Labor is different for every woman...

Despite the fact that labor is pretty much guaranteed to be painful, it varies slightly for every woman; no labor is the same.

This can depend on the woman's genetics, her tolerance to pain, body type...

And even the size of the baby.

And not only is labor physically exhausting...

It's also emotionally exhausting.

Pregnancy and labor are one of the most traumatic things a woman can endure...

And as if labour wasn't scary enough, there are lots of things that can go wrong.

In the early stages, scans are only indicative...

And parents-to-be attending scans are clearly informed that the sex is not guaranteed.

Despite this, many parents plan for their new baby based on the scan results...

Including clothes, doom decorations, and even picking out a name.

Although they can sometimes turn out wrong...

And result in a whole lot of confusion, especially after throwing a baby shower for the wrong sex.

No matter how prepared you are for welcoming a new baby into your life...

You can't prepare for everything.

As one new mom found out after giving birth...

Only to realize a huge detail had been missed.

Thirty-three-year-old Hayley Sexton did exactly what any new mom would do after finding out she was having a baby girl...

She decorated her nursery with girly attire and even chose the name Isabella, which she then painted over the walls.

Friends even threw her a girl-themed baby shower bringing gifts to congratulate the new mom-to-be.

She even received an ornament engraved with the name Isabella.

But after thirty-three-hours in labor, just over a week ago...

Hayley was given a big surprise.

"Isabella" was a boy...

She said: “When the midwife said, ‘He’s here’ I was like, ‘What do you mean He?’ At two scans I’d been told my baby was a girl."

She continued...

“When she gave him a clean up and lifted him I saw his bits! “It meant we had to come up with a new name — Alfie — as well as redecorate the nursery and take back a load of clothes."

She added: “It was the craziest experience."

"My dad had joked, ‘What would you do if you had a boy?’ and it happened."

She has had to do a lot of redecorating...

“I was over the moon when I found out I was going to have a girl, but I absolutely love Alfie and wouldn’t change him for the world."

"It was meant to be."

All that matters is Alfie is happy and healthy! Keep scrolling for more surprising baby news, including the controversial TikTok video that's sparked a huge debate...
