Huang Yijun told the press she didn’t have the money to have her fetus removed after doctors told her it had died inside her in 1948.

So she simply did nothing at all about it.

Lithopedion is a very rare medical phenomenon, which occurs when a pregnancy fails and the fetus actually calcifies while still in the mother’s body.

Medically speaking, what often happens is the implanted fetus gets to an advanced stage before it dies. Too large to be absorbed by the body, the remains of the child or its surrounding amniotic sac slowly calcify, turning to stone as a way to protect the woman’s body from infection from the decomposing tissue.

If no complications occur, believe it or not, the mother can basically just go on with her life.

Did you see that Nip-Tuck episode where the same thing happened to Mrs. Santa. She cheated on St. Nick 20 years earlier and was holding onto a little black baby the whole time. Kris Kringle knew it wasnt his because they never had sex.
God, I miss that show. Good times.

A Colombian woman who went to a hospital in Bogota, complaining of stomach pains, got the surprise of her life when doctors saw an X-ray and discovered a 40-year-old calcified fetus -- or lithopaedian -- inside her 82-year-old body, various news media outlets reported this week.

Lithopaedian, also known as stone baby, is a very rare syndrome that happens when the fetus grows outside the uterus and inside the abdomen. Indeed, the phenomenon of a fetus growing inside the abdomen occurs once in every 11,000 pregnancies; lithopaedian occurs in an estimated 1.5 percent to 1.8 percent of these cases. If the fetus becomes so large that it cannot be absorbed back into the body, it mummifies, with a layer of calcium protecting the mother's body from the dead tissue of the baby. Usually the woman has no idea a calcified fetus is inside her.

That's if you don't die in the waiting line first.
