Mother Brings Daughter To Doctor And Can’t Believe She’s Pregnant

It’s undeniable that doctors have one of the toughest jobs in the world. They can find themselves dealing with life and death situations on any given day. But, one of the most challenging parts of their jobs has to do with being the bearers of news to patients. Sometimes this news is welcomed because it’s good. However, it seems that more often, the news is of the other variety, unwelcome and not so good. Nonetheless, a doctor’s duty is to deliver any information about our health, good or bad. Ideally, they’ll carry out their duties with kindness, empathy, and professionalism. However, even doctors can sometimes have a dark sense of humor. The doctor in this fictional story had to break some rather troubling news to a mother who brought her teenage daughter in for a checkup.

A woman takes her 16-year-old daughter to the doctor. The doctor says, “Okay, Mrs. James, what’s the problem?”

The mother says, “It’s my daughter Darla. She keeps getting these cravings, she’s putting on weight, and is sick most mornings.”

The doctor gives Darla a good examination, then turns to the mother and says, “Well, I don’t know how to tell you this, but your Darla is pregnant-about 4 months, would be my guess.”

The mother says, “Pregnant?! She can’t be, she has never ever been left alone with a man! Have you, Darla?”

Darla replies, “No mother! I’ve never even kissed a man!”

The doctor walked over to the window and just stares out it. About five minutes pass and finally the mother says, “Is there something wrong out there doctor?”

The doctor replies, “No, not really, it’s just that the last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the east and three wise men came over the hill. I’ll be damned if I’m going to miss it this time!”
