Woman Unknowingly Gives Birth To An Eight Pound Baby: ‘I Thought I Was Dying!’

Lauren Peberdy was an average, size 8 woman when she gave birth to an 8lb., 7 oz. baby without even knowing she was pregnant! How bizarre is that?

Lauren Peberdy, 20, had been to the doctor’s office two weeks earlier for a contraceptive pill check-up, where she was told everything was OK! Normal weight, normal blood pressure, no symptoms. But obviously everything wasn’t normal — as she shockingly discovered.

Lauren was in her boyfriend, 21-year-old Gavin Jones‘ bathroom when her water broke and she delivered her son Dylan-James. “I didn’t know what was happening at first. I thought I was dying’,” Lauren, 20, from Deeside, North Wales, UK tells the Daily Mail. “By the time the paramedics arrived five minutes later I had given birth on the bathroom floor.”

Even more shocked by the whole thing was Gavin, who noticed absolutely no cravings, weight gain or mood swings in his girlfriend of two years — who was on birth control. At five and a half months pregnant, an amazingly thin Lauren showed no signs of a bump.

Can you believe this can really happen? It’s unbelievable!
