Many internet users were moved to tears recently when photo of a heavily pregnant woman identified as Elizabeth emerged online. It was gathered that the woman died during childbirth but more heart-wrenching, is the fact that she could not wait to hold her baby in her arms.
Her friend who shared the story shared the photos of Elizabeth in the hospital few minutes before she went into labour. Elizabeth's last instructions were for her friend to save the photos of her in the hospital as she planned to post them on social media after the delivery of her child.
Her last words read: "Elizabeth: - (Jesca) Don't delete those pictures , When I'm through with this pregnancy I'll post them on facebook, I am not there for now until I'm delivered of my baby. "Elizabeth! I just posted the pictures now you have given birth to your bouncing baby girl, the difference is that it's not you, but at least it's now on social media.
It's over eight days now and your daughter can see clearly, she saw me this morning Elizabeth."

Meanwhile, a Nigerian medical doctor recently took to his Twitter page to narrate a very strange incident which has left him shocked and shaken. According to him, his cousin conceived recently.
However, when she went to the hospital to do a pregnancy test, the test result revealed that she was not pregnant. This was very surprising to the cousin as she felt very pregnant not to talk of how her abdomen and entire stomach were swelling prominently.
After being tossed about three states and getting ultimately confused and disoriented, the cousin put to bed. By the hands of a midwife, she gave birth to two non-identical girls.
