Do you ever have a dream so vivid it almost seems real? Well for this California woman, her dream turned out to be a reality in the most peculiar way. Jenna Evans dreamed of herself swallowing her engagement ring and when she woke up, her dreams appeared to be true. A truly sparkling soon to be bride from the inside out shared her story.
While sleeping one night, Evans dreamed she had to swallow her ring to protect it. “We were on a cargo train at night and it was a mission impossible kind of situation. There were bad guys, and he said, ‘You have to swallow your ring’,” Evans stated in an interview with NBC 7 San Diego. Although she doesn’t remember taking off her 2.4-carat diamond ring, she certainly recalls swallowing it. On a Facebook post Evans wrote, “I popped that sucker off, put it in my mouth and swallowed it with a glass of water right about the time I realized what I was doing.”
Upon waking up, Evans checked her finger and noticed her ring was indeed missing. She then woke up Bobby to tell him about the incident. “I don’t think he believed me right away,” she said on Facebook. After the initial shock and laughter wore off, the skeptical couple decided to go to urgent care.
Welp. I have really outdone myself this time. I swallowed my engagement ring. In my sleep. Yep. How? I don't know. But I did!Waiting to get sedated and get this sucker extracted. 💍😫🤦♀️Posted by Jenna Leigh Howell on Wednesday, September 11, 2019
Once at urgent care, an X-Ray of Evans stomach confirmed that she in fact, swallowed her engagement ring. From there, Evans was referred to a gastroenterologist by the urgent care doctors. She was recommended to have an upper endoscopy performed opposed to letting “nature run its course”. An upper endoscopy is a procedure in which a scope with a light looks inside the upper digestive tract.
Luckily the procedure went smoothly and the ring was found just beyond her stomach sitting in her intestines. “I was really happy because I don’t know if I can look at it and appreciate it in the same way, if I had to search for it,” Evans chuckled in an interview with ABC 10 San Diego.

After a few days of holding Evans ring hostage, her fiancé Bobby had decided to give it back to her. Although the incident was not so unexpected and has potential to happen again, the ring is back on Evans hand and plans to stay there until their wedding next May. “I feel very grateful that I got it back, and that this is a happy and funny story,” Evans stated to ABC 10 San Diego.
