A viral TikTok from Kayla Simpson has taken the internet by storm; she claims she didn’t know she was pregnant until the actual birth itself.

In the video, Kayla says that nine months after she went to a college party as a sophomore, she visited the ER. AT the time, she believed she had appendicitis, but after an ultrasound, the truth was out: she was pregnant. Fifteen minutes later, she had delivered a baby girl.

Kayla had previously spoken about having a surprise baby back in November in a TikTok story time. She began the hashtag #fratbaby. So the story here didn’t come as a total shock to people who had been following her for a while, but still: horrifying.

“Stories like this is why i feel like i need to take a pregnancy test every month lmao,” laughed one viewer. Another person admitted, “All these people saying this is their worst fear and I’m over here thinking this is the only way I could handle pregnancy.”

The video also went viral on Twitter, where it amassed over 1.7 million views, including confirmation that this does happen.

“Yup this happens..We had a patient come into the ER thinking she had an impacted colon.. before we could get her to an exam room the baby dropped to the floor. She fainted 😩,” wrote in one Twitter user.

TikTok has no shortage of similar stories either. A viral video from last year showed a woman claiming she gave birth as a teenager and didn’t know she was pregnant. Other people thought it was a kidney stone or cyst. In fact, there is even a hashtag for it: #crypticpregnancy has more than 147 million views.

Some of these tales have been outed as fake; a recent TikTok that showed a woman learning she was pregnant during an ultrasound was staged, but it still went viral to the tune of 19 million views.

Kayla posted a follow up video on Tuesday answering questions about the father, if she got her period monthly, and posted the texts her family sent her when they learned about the baby.
