A woman received the surprise of her life late last year, after delivering a baby she didn't know she was carrying.
"No idea whatsoever," said Samantha Martin, who was pregnant with baby Ryelee Jade for 29 weeks without knowledge. "No symptoms. No sensitivity. Nothing like that."
It wasn't until Sept. 8, 2013, when the 27-year-old discovered she was with-child, after stomach cramps and bleeding landed her in the hospital. Ryelee was born the next day.
"It was 24 hours to digest that I was having a baby… that my whole life was uprooted again," said Martin. "But totally for the better."
The baby, born premature at 2 pounds, 3.5 ounces, was a shock to not only her, but her entire family- especially Martin's two young daughters and husband, who had had a prior vasectomy. She said doctors, too, were shocked.
"The doctors were quite surprised that I had no feeling whatsoever, no symptoms," said Martin.
Martin told 69 News that doctors also feared Ryelee wouldn't make it at one point.
The baby girl, now four months old and doing well, had to spend 55 days in the NICU before she could come home. She also faced a later hospitalization after contracting the flu, but now, Martin said the baby is "perfect."
While the baby has to wear a heart and oxygen monitor temporarily, she is expected to be okay.
"God must have thought that I could handle another one," said Martin. "And He blessed me with the most amazing little girl."
