A teen mum has revealed that she had no idea she was in labour until she saw the head of her baby under her skirt.
The mum, known only as Alexis, 19, took to TikTok to share her unbelievable birth story, which happened when she was 15 years old.
In the now-viral TikTok, the young parent explained how her cryptic pregnancy – one where the person doesn't know they are pregnant until they're at least five months along – went down.
She captioned the video: "Storytime about my cryptic pregnancy!"
The 19-year-old began by explaining that she knew her mum had heartburn when she was pregnant with her, so she took a pregnancy text on the off chance.
However, it was negative and she was still having regular periods, so she assumed that she wasn't pregnant.
Alexis said she had no other symptoms of pregnancy, until she returned to school after the summer holidays on 5 September to begin year 11.
It was then that she felt herself suffering from some back pain, which she treated with painkillers.
However, during the night, this pain increased significantly, but when she told her parents the next morning, they thought she was lying to get a day off school.
After getting changed into her uniform, Alexis went to the bathroom before school and that's when she felt the urge to push.
She then screamed for her mum to come into the bathroom and said she felt like she was giving birth.
Her mum asked her to come downstairs, and when she looked under Alexis skirt, she went 'into shock' when she saw 'a head'.
Alexis' father then ran out to get some pregnancy tests.
Needless to say, she was pregnant, and Alexis went on to have a baby that day on her living room floor.
Her unbelievable birth story has now been liked more than a million times on TikTok, with viewers rushing to the comments section to share their thoughts.
One joked: "Little late for the test, dad."
"I think the head emerging is a pretty positive pregnancy test," added a second while a third wrote: "NOT THE DAD RUNNING OUT WHILST YOUR IN LABOUR FOR PREGNANCY TESTS PHAHAH [sic]."
"I nearly wet myself at the dad getting pregnancy tests," laughed a fourth. "Such a man thing to do in a panic situation is get something entirely unhelpful."
Meanwhile, a sixth simply wrote: "I am not liking how common cryptic pregnancies seem to be."
