Mid-South woman found out she was pregnant 9 days before giving birth

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. — A Mid-South woman who found out she was pregnant just nine days before she gave birth is calling her newborn son a miracle baby.

“Me and my husband just figured it wasn’t in the cards for us to have children,” Lauren Chalk told FOX13.

Chalk welcomed little baby Wyatt December 2nd.

She said she had given up on pregnancy because she already had two miscarriages.

It wasn’t until the Saturday before Thanksgiving that she found out she was pregnant, and not only was she pregnant, she was 38 weeks along.

“I don’t think I could love anybody more than what I love Wyatt. He’s the best gift that anybody could give me; best Christmas gift since Jesus.

The first time mother was diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome as a teenager which is why she had no idea she was expecting. The condition caused her to have irregular menstrual cycles.

OBGYN’s said it’s not unheard of for women to not know they’re pregnant days before they give birth, especially if they have conditions similar to Lauren’s.

Lauren also said her clothes didn’t fit her any differently so she had no idea.
