Pregnant without knowing it?


Has anyone experienced this, as in got to 7 months or more, or even gone into labour without realising you're pregnant? Or do you know anyone who has?

It's always intrigued/baffled me x

I know a girl who got to 6 months without knowing, went to the docs because she had a UTI or something. She was stick thin when I saw her, the Monday after (when she knew) it was as if she had just POPPED overnight!

I didn't find out I was pregnant with this little one until the end of November..When I was about 13/14 weeks gone and it showed up on a blood test. It's late for when most people find out but not quite 3rd tri late

My co-worker went into labour without knowing she was pregnant. She says she had absolutely NO signs or symptoms! She went into the emergency room with severe abdominal pain, and a few hours later she was holding her baby!

That's cool apparently some woman who visits the shop my partner works in went into labour and didn't have a clue she was pregnant! It really does amaze me, I mean when I was pregnant with Jack I could literally see my stomach moving, he even moved me off the mattress slightly when I was on my side! Plus getting kicked in the ribs and using my bladder as a pillow... just can't imagine it! x

I dont know anyone personally, but I've always been jealous of those that manage it! I'd love to skip the first tri with all the knicker watching, morning sickness and worrying and go straight to the blooming full of energy second tri!!

My Mums friend was in labour before she realised

She came to my Mums one day and commented on how she couldnt stop peeing then when she went to the loo she had a huge gush of water. My Mum commented half joking about it sounding like her waters had gone. She got checked out a funnily enough she was in labour and dilating...her DD was born hours later! My Mum always said she didnt understand how she couldnt have known and could never get her head around it

one of the men I work with had this happen to his wife! this is his account of the story...

He said that he was out drinking one night when he got a call from his Mrs about severe stomach pain - he comes home phones the Dr - the Dr starts examining her so he goes off downstairs to make a fry up when the Dr came down and said "Your a daddy" and he was like "great is everything ok? whens it due?" and the Dr was like "no your a Daddy now!" - he said he'd never sobered up so quickly.

He said that she had her periods all the way through and no morning sickness (which does happen to people) and when I asked about the movements and weight gain he said that his wife was on the larger side so didn't notice the gain or any movements She was riding a motorcycle up until 2 days before the birth where she fell off!!! lol

I too really can't understand how people don't know - before I had done my test I 'knew' I just felt differently. I wish I had no sickness!!! seriously the whole 40 weeks of been sick was not fun at all - but the other stuff like wanting to eat more (actually this didn't apply to me due to the sickness lol) do they not get that 'heavy' feeling - you know the one where walking is just a effort and you just feel so 'heavy' lol.. also remember when the baby drops and you feel like your walking about with a giant egg stuck in your pelvis which makes you do the good old waddle - doesn't this happen??

With the movements I never had any during the day at all - and only really felt her at night - plus she lying right back so was very small and MW said this is way I can't feel her moving

BUT what about all the other symptoms??? heartburn?? acid taste in mouth?? going off foods?? cravings??? insomnia?? feeling really uncomfy.. you get the gist.. lol

Seriously I know it happens but if its happened to anyone on here I'd love to know about the rest of the symptoms apart from just the periods, movements and ms.

.... sorry just realised how much i've gone on!

I figure most of the symptoms are explainable away... Morning sickness? You just have the flu. Heartburn? You must have eaten something weird. Walking funny? You probably slept funny last night and now just have a kink in your leg or something. Cravings? Not really something you notice unless you're pregnant and hyper-sensative to what's going on.

I could go on.
