THE 60 YEAR PREGNANCY
Huang Yijun, a 92 year-old woman from southern China arguably has the record for the longest pregnancy ever... an astonishing 60 years! Of course, this is where the "arguably" comes in... she delivered a baby known as a lithopedion or 'Stone Baby.'
Huang Yijun's strange pregnancy began in 1948 when
the baby she was carrying tragically died inside of her. Yijun told
reporters that she didn't have the money to have her fetus removed, so she
simply did nothing at all about it and left it where it was.
Medically speaking, Yijun could have lived the rest of her life never having to worry about the lithopedion resting inside of her, but pain forced her to have the remains of the baby removed bringing an end to her 60 year pregnancy.
