Woman Shocked To Find She Was Pregnant When She Gave Birth On The Toilet
On 8th November 2021
This woman's TikTok video has gone viral and has instilled new fear of 'cryptic pregnancy' in women where a woman does not even know she is pregnant. In cryptic pregnancy, even the pregnancy tests come negative. Alexis's in her viral video shares how she went about her day on the day of birth and how her family reacted to seeing the baby coming out of her out of nowhere.
Imagine the horror you go through when you get ready for school and sit on the toilet just for a quick poop only to realize that you are in fact giving birth to a child you never knew you were pregnant with.
This is exactly what happened to TikToker Alexis (@alexisqueen.x) as a 15-year-old student.
Alexis' story has gone viral on TikTok at the age of 19 after she revealed the details of what went down the day she gave surprise birth to her son.
Alexis' opened up about her story when she participated in a TikTok trend where people were sharing their wild life experiences to the harmonies to MIKA’s Grace Kelly song.
In part one of her video, she explains: “My mum mentioned she had heartburn when pregnant with me, and realising I had a bit of heartburn took a pregnancy test after my school holidays.”
Alexis continued: “With the test being negative, still having regular periods and no more symptoms I went back to school for my 1st day in [year] 11 in September.”
She then describes that on the day of birth she was feeling 'perfectly okay' at school but then she took pain killers for her back pain and 'thought nothing of it.'
After not sleeping all night due to the back pain, she woke her parents up at 6 am complaining but they thought she was trying to bunk off school.
However, things took a dramatic turn soon.
“I went to the toilet before setting off for school and having the urge to push, I was screaming for my mum and telling her I think I’m giving birth,” she said.
She added: “My mum was shouting to me to come downstairs and looked up my skirt to check, and went into shock when she saw a head.”
Meanwhile, her dad frantically “ran out the door for pregnancy tests.”
Alexis' story has gone viral and her video has received 7m views, along with nearly 930,000 likes, with thousands of people requesting a part two to know how Alexis handled the surprise pregnancy.
In the follow-up video, the TikToker describes how she is in “unbearable pain” while her mom was in “total shock.”
Alexis’ aunt then look up her skirt too and confirmed she could see a head and shouted at her mom to get into action and call an ambulance.
“The operator was on the phone telling my aunt that she needed to deliver the baby,” she continued. “I was screaming that I needed to push and the ambulance still hadn’t arrived so I needed to talk my aunt through everything.”
“I finally make one last push as paramedics walk through the door as a tiny baby boy makes his appearance on the living room floor.”
Basically, Alexis had a cryptic pregnancy where a woman is completely unaware she is pregnant and doesn’t show any clear signs - hence the negative pregnancy tests.
Alexis' second video also went viral with nearly 920,000 views.
Alexis' video has gone viral on social media and apparently, her video has instilled a new fear among women about having cryptic pregnancy themselves.
One person wrote: “I absolutely do not claim this is my biggest fear.”
“I don’t claim this energy,” another person agreed.
Someone else added: “This is my worst nightmare.”
“New fear unlocked,” a fourth person replied.
