Either she's just using that as a way to say why she didn't tell people for so long or she genuinely didn't know maybe her periods never came back regular after 1st LO and she put movements down to gas? I've heard of a couple of girls on here who didnt know till like 30 weeks. Either way noone knows the truth she's most likely feeling terrified of what people will say and if she will be judged. I said it to a few people with my 1st (not that far along though lol) like 15 weeks or so.
I can't relate personally - I had a feeling before I even missed my period and now even people who don't know me and have never met me before are pretty confident that I'm pregnant. However, I have heard enough of these stories to believe that there's some truth to them. I guess everyone's body is very, very different! Hope baby is OK, that's all that matters really.
My son, I didn't have BH, hardly felt movements (movements are different anterior vs posterior placenta position). While I gained weight, I really didn't properly "show"...I honestly can see how someone might not now??? The only reason I took a test is because I started getting dizzy spells (had zero morning sickness with him) and ONLY then did I realize that I was eight days late (we had given up ttc as we tried for three and a half years)...that show I didn't know I was pregnant...these are often second or even third time moms so :shrugs: I can't judge anyone. I would say try to be supportive. I don't think age plays anything when parenting. My mom was 19 and had two kids and I'll be 33 when I'm done having kids. I think my mom raised me just fine. My brother and I were also 18 months apart.
Oh and I should point out that I had been to the dr that monday with a bad "infection" that later was ruled as a pregnancy symptom...no dr took us seriously about ttc so they didn't bother to even test and just put me on antibiotics...I called a few days after getting really bad dizzy spells and asked if they did a test as I thought it was routine but she said "we only do that if you are trying"...yea previous post and they knew we were trying for over three years...glad for a dr change after that LOL
I didnt know I was pregnant and I was 17 weeks along. I had other health problems that masked the pregnancy signs. Though now that im 22 weeks I can definetly tell that im pregnant via the hard bump were my stomach use to be and the lack of bladder control
a friend of a friend apparently went into hospital with pains and came out with a baby lol he is 2 now! I can't understand how people don't know either... and i don't think I ever will unless it happens to me!
Some of these 'i didnt know i was pregnant' programmes are ridiculous. I have seen a few were i've thought 'ok fair enough' but ive also seen ones were woman are saying there periods stopped, they'd put on weight etc and just 'didn't realise' :doh:
maybe she knew how you and other people would react and hid it because of that. Maybe she is just saying she didn't know to avoid questions as to why she didn't tell. This may well have been a planned, or at least wanted pregnancy and she can't be judged on age at all. I'd say try and be supportive. She either wanted this and was worried about reactions, or sincerely didn't know. Either way she will need your support more than your judgement.
she says she went drs to arrange termination so wasn't planned or wanted only to find out she was 38 weeks
