Just one day before her January 18 due date, pregnant Maine woman Abigail Cain knew she could go into labor any minute. What she didn't realize was how fast it would happen!

Cain first began feeling contractions in the early morning on Friday. She got ready, walked to the driveway, and was about to leave for the hospital with her husband, when she suddenly realized the baby wasn't going to wait any longer.

Cain had the passenger door open and was leaning on the seat, waiting for her husband. As she felt her labor speed up, she honked the horn a couple of times to try and hurry him up. But I guess he just wasn't fast enough because soon, she felt the urgent need to push.

Next thing she knew, she was delivering the baby by herself, while still standing next to the car in -13 degree temperatures! When her husband, Joseph, came out of the house with their hospital bag, he heard a baby crying and knew that it wasn't their 2-year-old son. Can you imagine?!

Thankfully, both mom and her baby daughter, Danica AnneMarie Cain, are doing just fine. Both were taken to a local hospital by ambulance, shortly after the infant was born.

Yeesh! Clearly, delivering the baby outside in freezing cold temperatures wasn't in her plans, so it's amazing that Cain was able to stay calm under the circumstances.  I'm just glad both she and her baby are safe.

Still, Cain's hardly the first mom to unexpectedly go into labor. Below, check some of the other crazy places women have given birth:
