It is known that pregnancy symptoms can be very different for each woman, but no one expects that there are no signs that a person is about to give birth.
Precisely the case of Faye White, a 19-year-old girl from the United Kingdom, has attracted the attention of social networks because it is a case of this type. According to her, she gave birth to her third child even though several pregnancy tests were negative.
The Daily Mail reports that White suffered a ruptured membrane on the morning of May 6 this year, but he thought it was a urinary tract infection. Shortly afterwards he felt severe discomfort.
“Having already had two births, I knew what labor pains were. “I called my mother-in-law and said, ‘I have to go to the hospital, I’m in pain,'” he recalled.
“I could see a foot dangling.”
Amid confusion and worry, Faye went into labor at home and, according to her statement, saw a foot pop out of her.
“I went to the toilet because I felt a lot of pressure and something came out. I went back to my room and it turned out to be his foot. I ended up calling an ambulance. “My mother-in-law said she could see a hanging foot,” he said.
After doctors arrived at her home, the baby, who she named Luna, was suddenly born in the back of the ambulance.
Faye’s health condition is called “cryptic pregnancy,” in which the woman does not notice classic symptoms or signs that occur during pregnancy.
“The whole time I was pregnant with her I had my period. I had a little swelling, but I didn’t think anything of it because it was very mild. I had mild reflux, which I still have when I’m not pregnant. “I had no pain,” added the Brit.
What is a cryptic pregnancy?
A cryptic pregnancy is one in which the woman does not know she is pregnant until she is in an advanced stage of pregnancy or even until the time of delivery. It can also be called a silent or hidden pregnancy or a denied pregnancy. In addition, a cryptic pregnancy usually goes unnoticed by the woman’s environment, points out the Assisted Reproduction portal.
This is a situation that occurs more often than anyone can imagine. Many people find it difficult to believe that a woman does not realize she is pregnant. Especially for women who are already mothers and have experienced the typical symptoms of pregnancy and the movements of the baby in the womb. However, cryptic pregnancy can also occur in women who are not pregnant for the first time.
