A US woman training for a half-marathon was shocked to find her sore back was labour pains from an unknown pregnancy

An aspiring half-marathon runner in the United States whose two-hour training session left her with a sore back was stunned to discover that the pain was not due to a pulled muscle or a slipped disc but that she was about to give birth.

Trish Staine, from Minnesota says she had no idea she was pregnant. The 33-year-old Duluth mother of three insists she gained no weight, felt no fetal movement ,and that her husband has had a vasectomy.

Mrs Staine says she noticed what she now realises were labour pains after her run at noon on Sunday but did not go to the hospital until the following day. She gave birth to Mira - short for Miracle - on Monday afternoon. The baby weighted 6 pounds, 6 ounces.
