(Meredith) -- A woman from South Dakota went to the hospital with what she thought was kidney stone pain. Doctors discovered she was actually pregnant with triplets and was in labor.

Danette Giltz told KOTA she was having pains Aug. 10 and assumed it was a kidney stone, something she has had before. She went to the hospital, where doctors quickly realized she was in labor and told her to expect twins.

During a c-section, doctors discovered that Giltz was actually having triplets. The babies were born just after 7 p.m., just a few hours after Giltz's admittance to the hospital.

The triplets -- one boy and two girls -- were named Blaze Jackson, Gypsy Zada and Nikki Marie. They weighed 4 lbs. 15 oz., 4 lbs. 5 oz. and 4 lbs. 6 oz., respectively.

According to KOTA, Giltz and her husband Austin Giltz have been together for 12 years and were already parents to two children. Now, they are parents to five.

The triplets -- one boy and two girls -- were named Blaze Jackson, Gypsy Zada and Nikki Marie. They weighed 4 lbs. 15 oz., 4 lbs. 5 oz. and 4 lbs. 6 oz., respectively.

According to the mom's Facebook post, all three triplets are healthy and doing well.

A friend started a Facebook fundraiser for the family to help cover costs of the unexpected babies.

According to the fundraiser page, Giltz said she never felt any movement and never had morning sickness during her 34-week pregnancy.

The family lives in Sturgis, South Dakota in the central west part of the state.
