DULUTH, Minn. — An aspiring half-marathon runner in Minnesota attributed her unbearable back pain to a two-hour training session. A day later, she was cradling a newborn.

Trish Staine, 33, says she had no idea she was pregnant before Monday's surprise birth. The Duluth mother of three said she hadn't gained any weight or felt fetal movement in the months before. And besides, her husband had a vasectomy.

"I said `no, no, that's impossible,' " Staine said Wednesday from her Duluth hospital room.

Wow!  What a crazy story.  I just can't imagine not knowing you are pregnant until the birth.

That is a crazy story indeed! I'm a first time mom, so I'm not sure what happens later in pregnancy, but from the pure exhaustion I've felt so far, I can't imagine going on this way for 9 months and not wondering what was going on with my body. Crazy!

My cousin's last baby was born this way. She had no idea.
