  • A sandwich made the social media manager’s size four physique feel bloated
  • But the test was positive and she discovered she was five months pregnant

A woman has revealed how she found out she was five months pregnant after taking a test as a joke when a sandwich left her size four physique feeling bloated.

Jasmin Miller, 24, from San Diego, California, bought a home pregnancy test kit for a laugh when a snack left her feeling full – and mother Erica joked she could be expecting. 

But shockingly the test was positive and it was later confirmed that the then 22-year-old was five months pregnant – despite staying a svelte size four over that period of time.

Just three months later, at 32 weeks, social media manager Jasmin gave birth to her first child Leighton Skye Miller.

Jasmin said: ‘The reason I tested was the week prior, I was going to a concert, ate a sandwich and then blew up with bloat. I broke down immediately on seeing the tests and started bawling my eyes out.’ 

Jasmin didn’t have a period throughout her pregnancy since she was on birth control, and while she was starting to need the bathroom more frequently, she put this down to having a urinary tract infection (UTI) and didn’t think anything of it.

The new graduate also had severe cramping but was suffering from a stomach illness which she just associated her symptoms with.

Jasmin, who studied Communications at UCLA, said: ‘I had a boyfriend that was not super serious and 100 per cent neither of us were ready to start a family.

‘I remember one time he asked me if we could get a dog, and at the time my exact response was “A dog? That’s like a 15 year commitment, what are we going to do? Ship it back and forth if we aren’t together?”‘

Normally a size six, the week she found out she was pregnant, Jasmin had actually lost weight and was down to a size four. 

At the end of July 2019, Jasmin went to a Billie Eilish concert where she ate a tomato sandwich as a snack and quickly became extremely bloated.

She said: ‘It was so abnormal, that I sent a picture to my mother and said something is wrong look how bloated I am. She jokingly said I looked pregnant based on where the bloat was. She was joking but said I should take a test just in case.’

Jasmin and a friend went to a pharmacy and picked up two pregnancy tests to take as a joke and to ease her mother Erica’s mind.

When the first one came up positive, she frantically took a second one, and then bought a third and fourth, only to get the same result.

Jasmin said: ‘I was freaking out, had no clue what to do.’

She drove over to see her mother and told her in person, who also teared up at the news.

‘She told me she was sad because she knew how hard it would be for me as she was a young single mom at 24 too,’ said Jasmin. 

Four days later, she visited the doctor for the first time for an ultrasound – and found out she was 19 weeks and five days along.

She said: ‘I started laughing and bawling in the ultrasound room with the tech. I was completely by myself and was so scared. I was in complete shock, tons of disbelief, lots of denial.’

When she tried to tell the father – her ex-boyfriend who she had broken up with just two weeks prior – she claims he accused her of lying and that she hadn’t been taking birth control.

Jasmin recalled: ‘In the middle of me talking, he gets up, walks out of the car slams the door and doesn’t look back. That’s the last time I saw him while I was pregnant.’

The next 12 weeks were a whirlwind of preparations for her new arrival, but the expecting mother wanted to keep her pregnancy as much of a secret as she could.

She said: ‘I hid my entire pregnancy from the world, because I was scared of being judged by the people I knew in high school. It’s so embarrassing when I look back that I let those people prevent me from fully celebrating such a special time in life.’

On October 23 2019, Jasmin went into labour at 32 weeks pregnant – and just three days after her baby shower. 

Leighton Skye Miller was born weighing 3lb 14.6oz and was rushed to NICU and remained there for two months until she was 6lbs.

Jasmin said: ‘After spending two months in the NICU and being with the nurses 12 hours of the day every day, I learned so much that I felt more ready when I left.

‘They were able to teach me how to do diapers and bottles, what to do with choking, fainting, etc. 

‘Before having her, I felt ready and adjusted, but after having her, I felt so confused. It took forever for saying “my daughter” to feel semi-normal.’

Life for the little family is a lot easier now, and Jasmin chose to share her journey on her TikTok, @jasminandleighton, to help provide support to other young mothers.

The video of her explaining how she didn’t know she was pregnant has over 800,000 views.

She said: ‘It’s crazy to imagine my life without her, and where I would be had she not come along. She makes me strive to be a better person every day.

‘I think it’s important to share your story with others when it can help other people going through a similar situation. I think sharing is such a powerful tool, and to see that life isn’t perfect but its about what you make of it.’
