Woman Thinks Baby Is Blowing Bubbles, Doctors Tell Her What Is Really Happening

Tammy Gonzalez received an unexpected shock at a recent ultrasound, and that led to an incredibly tough decision for her to make. According to ABC News, that decision would also result in a surgery being performed that was the first of its kind.

Her ultrasound would reveal a large mass, and Tammy was uncertain if it was part of her or the unborn baby. Doctors would confirm that it was in fact part of the baby, and that it was a fast-growing tumor known as a teratoma.

"They told me that type of tumor can grow so fast. I said, 'there must be something we can do,'" Tammy recalls.

She was presented with the options of terminating the pregnancy or facing the risk of miscarriage, as well as something that had never been done before. The doctors told her they could attempt to remove the tumor via endoscopic surgery, a procedure that had never been attempted before.

"I said, 'I want to do this. Let's do this,'" she stated.

The surgery was scheduled, and Tammy was even able to stay awake through the whole procedure to witness it. It turned out to be completely successful, and her daughter Leyna was later born without issue – and completely healthy today.
