A teenager who gave birth after her first day back at school says she had no idea she was pregnant.  On the night after her first day back, the Year 11 pupil started to feel pains in her lower back and screamed for her mum, who was shocked by what she was seeing.  The TikTok user has now shared what happened in a viral video, StokeonTrentLive reports.  When her mother looked under her skirt, she saw the baby crowning under her uniform.  The teenager wrote she had taken a pregnancy test during the summer holidays, but that it came back negative and that she was still having regular periods and no symptoms except for a bit of heartburn.  alexis.queen18 said: "My mum mentioning she had heartburn when pregnant with me, me realising Iíve had a bit of heartburn lately and taking a pregnancy test during the summer holidays.  The test being negative and me still having regular periods and no more symptoms, goes back to school for my 1st day in [year] 11 on the 5th September."

She said she felt perfectly ok on her first day back at school but that she was kept up all night due to the constant back pain.  The teenager ended up waking up her parents at 6am who thought she was just trying to get a day off until she went to the toilet having an urge to push - screaming for her mum and telling her "I think Iím giving birth".

She said: "Having a perfectly OK day back at school. Getting ready for bed having a bit of back pain so taking painkillers and thinking nothing of it.  Not sleeping all night due to the constant back pain, waking my mum and dad up at 6am telling them and they think Iím just trying to get a day off so into my uniform I get," she said.

"Going to the toilet before I set off to school and having the urge to push, me screaming [for] my mum and telling her I think Iím giving birth.  My mum shouting me to come downstairs then looking up my skirt to check and going into shock when she sees a head, my dad running out the door for pregnancy test.  Ended up giving birth to my baby on the living room floor with no knowledge I was [pregnant].  Had regular periods and no symptoms, bump or signs of pregnancy at all plus a negative test. Found I went through a cryptic pregnancy, anterior placement of my placenta hid baby kicks/movements."

Earlier this month, a teenager who went to the hospital with suspected appendicitis came home 48 hours later with a new born baby.
