She gave birth at home ... but had no idea she was pregnant.
In 2004, father of three Ryan Emmons had a vasectomy. But last April, Ryan's family had the surprise of their life when wife Carri woke up in the middle of the night with severe cramps ... and ended up giving birth to a baby she didn't even know she was pregnant with. Hear the complete 911 call here.
Carri was concerned that her husband would suspect that she had cheated, but doctors say Ryan had had a failed vasectomy. They share their story with "20/20" tonight:
For men worried about vasectomy failure, doctors recommend checking semen samples at regular intervals to ensure that the tubes remain closed.
Are surprise pregnancies like Carri's on the rise? There is an entire TV show dedicated to the subject: "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant," on TLC. And statistics show that one in six hundred women who give birth had no idea she was pregnant. How crazy is that?!
