A TikToker has shared with her followers that she didn't know she was pregnant until right before she gave birth to her baby.
Hannah Violet, 23, who posts under @h.anviolet, was 19 when she became a single mum unexpectedly.
In a video she joked, "Me: There's no chance of me getting pregnant cause I'm on the pill.
"Also me: Doesn't know I'm pregnant until 50 minutes before I gave birth."
In another video, she explained that she woke up one morning with severe pain in her stomach and back and was rushed to the hospital with what was thought to be appendicitis when her waters broke.
"We get to the hospital and they want to take blood, but I'm in too much pain to stay still for them to get a needle in, two seconds later my waters break and they tell me I'm in labour," she said. "They took my parents into a room to tell them that they're about to be grandparents. Me then asking for my mum to be with and my dad stays in the room with tea and biscuits while he calls my brother."
"They then get midwives to come from the other side of the hospital, I give birth to a baby girl 50 minutes [later]," she said. "They then tell me that we have to be transferred to another hospital in separate ambulances and that I can go in my dad's car after giving birth. I'm now a single mum to a healthy three-year-old."
Hannah has previously posted that she thought she didn't want kids, but is so glad she has her daughter Elsie now.
She has never shared who the father is, preferring to keep that to herself, sharing that she has only told some close friends.
Some commenters were confused as to how the pregnancy could get that far without her knowing with one user writing, "How can you not know that you're pregnant?"
"But howwww?" another questioned, while someone else wrote, "OMG, I'm scared."
Some joked that they hoped they could get through pregnancy without realising they were expecting.
"I'm actually jealous of those who have cryptic pregnancy," one user wrote. "I'm sure it's awful really, but I've hated every minute of being pregnant."
Many others shared that they had either had a cryptic pregnancy or knew someone who did.
"It's so much more common than people think," Hannah said in response to someone saying their cousin had gone through the same thing.
