Surprise birth for Connecticut mom

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A Connecticut woman, who didn't know she was pregnant, thought she was having a gall bladder attack but ended up delivering a nine pound baby boy instead.

Jennifer Scollin and Matthew Dillman are now the proud parents to Cole Dillman. He was born Saturday, March 29, 2014.

The little boy shocked his parents.

Scollin says for the past nine months, she had no idea she was pregnant. She says she didn't gain weight and continued her monthly cycles.

Scollin detected a problem though, the day Cole was born. She thought she was having gall bladder problems after experiencing sharp pains throughout the day, until her water broke.

The couple called the ambulance, but Cole couldn't wait any longer. He was born in an ambulance in their driveway!

"It was a blur. All I know it is I pushed twice and they were like. 'you have a baby boy'," Scollin said. "It's a fantastic feeling. It really is."

"I couldn't believe it. It's amazing. Thank God they're both all right, both healthy," said father Matthew Dillman.

    Study: Fewer painkiller deaths in states with medical marijuana

    Wednesday, August 27 2014 9:59 PM EDT2014-08-28 01:59:55 GMT
    A study is published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that in the 13 states that passed laws between 1999 and 2010 allowing medical marijuana, the number of people who died from overdosing on prescription painkillers fell by 25 percent. The study suggests that patients are smoking marijuana to treat pain instead of taking prescription pain killers. But Dr. Robert Glatter of Lenox Hill Hospital said the study is flawed.
