25 Stories About Mothers That Are So Weird You'll Think About Them All Day.

Moms are tough ladies. We all know this. Going through nine months (or more) of pregnancy is hard enough, but that’s only the beginning of the journey as a mom. Some moms do some truly extraordinary things, sometimes before they even give birth. You’ll see several examples of that here today.

You’ll see moms who waited much longer than others before actually becoming a mom or a mom that gave up everything to save her daughter and yet another mom that had eight kids at the same time. That was in addition to the six she already had. Moms can be truly amazing sometimes and you’ll see some good examples of that below.

#1. Meet Elizabeth Ann Buttle.

She gave birth to a daughter at the age of 19. She then had a son at the age of 60. That's the longest interval ever between children.

#5. Joanna Krzysztonek

Joanna was pregnant with triplets when she went into labor much earlier than doctors wanted. One of the babies died and she was forced to lay upside down, at a 30 degree angle, for more than two months, to keep the others from sending her into another labor. After that, she delivered the other two as healthy babies.
