Saffron Heffer had no idea she was expecting and only developed a "sudden" baby bump when medics turned her son in her womb.
It was only when the year-old's own mum spotted a strange line on her tummy that the teenager took a pregnancy test, The Sun reported. Despite being on the contraceptive pill, it turned out Ms Heffer was 37 weeks pregnant, and gave birth to her son Oscar just six weeks later. The shop worker said she put her missed periods down to the pill, and dismissed her cravings for Cornettos, lettuce and strawberries, thinking it was just because they were on offer at her local shop.
After taking the test, an emergency midwife appointment confirmed baby Oscar was back-to-back in the womb, meaning Ms Heffer barely had a bump. Medics also told Ms Heffer her son's skinny "chicken" legs might be to blame for her non-existent bump.
Ms Heffer had just weeks to get her head around the impending arrival, before welcoming healthy baby Oscar, who weighed 3. The teenager, then 17 years old, had felt tired for months, but doctors put it down to anaemia and a vitamin D and B12 deficiency. I was in size 10 jeans, and I was in size 8 jeans when I found out I was pregnant. Throughout her pregnancy the fitness fanatic continued going to the gym and still had regular sun-bed sessions. While doing sit-ups, the teenager said she noticed her tummy went into a "funny triangle shape".
After seeing the midwife, Ms Heffer said her bump grew by the day - and all of a sudden she could feel her unborn son wriggling and kicking. She said: "It was so strange, from feeling nothing at all to feeling everything daily is just unreal. That's a lot to take in for an adult, let alone a year-old. But, realising that she couldn't change what was happening, Ms Heffer said she faced her situation head-on, refusing to let the stress beat her.
