Nicollete Soto had tried to conceive for more than five years without any success and when she found that she was finally pregnant, the doctors warned that she had a rare kind of pregnancy where in the embryo was located in a part of the Fallopian tube that was attached to the muscular layer of the uterus.

So far there has been no successful pregnancy of this kind which is often fatal to both the baby and the mother. With doctors unable to see the exact location of the embryo, they advised Soto to terminate the pregnancy which in all probability could have ended any chance of her conceiving in future.

She carried the baby for more than 32 weeks without any problems and the doctors then delivered the baby without any major problems.

Dr Rodney Edwards said that the Fallopian tubes could not have stretched to accommodate the embryo and should have ruptured after 14 weeks. "For some reason, hers did not rupture. It continued to stretch. This is just a case that proves, in medicine, nothing happens 'always' or 'never'", he told New York Daily News.
