An Omaha couple finds out they're pregnant and then have the baby in just 48 hours. Doctors had to perform an emergency c-section to save mom and child.

Peyton Stover, 23, thought she was just feeling the effects of her new job.

Then her legs started to swell and after her mom pushed her to go to the doctor, Stover heard the news she never expected.

"They ran the test again she said, 'It's definitely positive. We're going to do an ultrasound,'" Stover said. "She looked right at the screen and said, 'You're definitely pregnant.'"

Her situation grew dire and her doctors had to move fast

Stover had an emergency cesarean surgery and Kash was born 10 weeks early at just over four pounds.
