I didn’t realize I was pregnant until I gave birth in the toilet

Date:

A woman who didn’t realize she was pregnant has revealed how she ended up giving birth in the toilet after mistaking her labor pains for constipation.

Marla McIntyre, of Georgia, unknowingly carried the baby for 40 weeks despite being on birth control.

The 34-year-old said she only missed one period during that period but rejected it after taking a pregnancy test which came back negative.

But she eventually delivered her five-pound, 18-inch son — whom she has since named Atlas Cohen — while on the toilet.

Marla took to TikTok to share her story and tell stories Followers: I am 34 years old, I have never had any pregnancy scares before.

I got pregnant this past May and never showed up, my stomach was spongy, my belly button didn’t stick out, no morning sickness, I never felt a kick – nothing.

“Around January, I started having some hip pain and some stomach issues, so I went to the chiropractor and I went to the doctor and no one really found out there was a baby.”

Talking about the date of birth of Atlas, she said: That night I thought I was constipated.

I sent my dad to the store to get me laxatives and went back and forth to the bathroom about five times.

Then the fifth time when Atlas came.

“I just had Atlas in the toilet,” continues Marla, who has been on birth control since she was 18. “I look down and see he’s alive and I’m screaming for my dad.”

“My dad comes over there and helps me get the baby out of the toilet because he’s obviously still attached at this point and it’s hard for me to get him out.”

The 34-year-old said she only missed one period during that period but rejected it after taking a pregnancy test which came back negative.

she said later New York Post: “I looked down at the toilet, and he’s there with the water up to his ears and right under his chin, just looking at me again, like, ‘Are you going to get me out of here, Mom?'” “

Her father, Kevin, immediately called 911 for advice, so she started talking him through the next steps.

She explains, “The EMTs are like ‘Okay, you need to clamp the umbilical cord’ but he doesn’t really feel comfortable doing that, so he takes a chip clip—like the ones you keep potato chip bags closed with—and cuts the umbilical cord with that until the EMTs arrive.” to there.

“We live in the middle of nowhere, so it takes about 20 minutes for this to happen — and at this point, I’m just spreading eagle on the ground with my dad there — and I’m like ‘what’s happening now. “

“It was a lot of processing at one time.”

Marla said the bathroom looked like a murder scene and that the father and daughter were trying to keep it as quiet as possible.

They were eventually taken to the hospital for checks – and both mother and baby are fine.

“There are still some issues with fatherhood that I’m dealing with,” Marla has since told the publication.

The new mom said she’s grateful for her family and friends who pulled together to help purchase needed baby gear and supplies on such short notice.

Her sister, Lacey, also took to Instagram to share a heart-warming post about the new mother-son duo.

She wrote: ‘February 27th, 11.28pm was one of those moments that change your life in a split second. My sister unexpectedly and miraculously gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy…at home…without ever knowing she was pregnant.

Dear Child Atlas, It’s crazy to think that just seven days ago, no one knew you existed. Not even your mother! (Which was getting ready to leave for a four-day camping music festival in Florida…thank God you showed up when you did).

I never thought I’d be an aunt, but now here I am, just drenched in love for you little man!! Give me another week and I probably won’t cry every time I get pregnant.

My dear sister, the moment I found out about the birth of Atlas and met you all in the hospital, I saw a change in you, a new sense of peace and purpose in this life.

You’ve got one certified now, sis, and it’s taken beautifully on this list of unexpected motherhood. I seriously couldn’t be more proud of you.
