I think its called DENIAL!!!!!!!!!! i know a girl like this... she is due in 3 weeks and says she "just found out." She finally broke down and took a test. I think everyone else has known for awhile haha.

There may be some who truly don't know... but denial is a powerful drug!

This happened to a girl I went to high school with. She had two kids then had her tubes tied. Went to the doctor awhile back for her annual check-up only to find out she was pregnant. I guess the doctor noticed during her pap. When they did the ultrasound to confirm they found she was 28 weeks!!! She couldn't feel the baby move as she had an anterior placenta and she hadn't gained a single pound. I saw her shortly after and her stomach just looked slightly bloated. So I guess it can happen! She had the baby not long ago. Talk about surprised!!

Wow, interesting! I guess bc I feel so DANG pregnant, even though the symptoms are minor, there is no way I could deny or not know I'm pregnant! Blows my mind to this day... and that lady in the video was small, so it wasn't like she wouldn't notice a little extra weight gain... she lost as much weight as I've gained! I still just think it is insane to be that out of tune with your body. Wouldn't you notice the lack of periods?? I mean, if I listed all my symptoms here, and they are much less than with DS, it would still be a novel! haha

I know what you mean! I absolutely KNEW I was pregnant about 14 days after my period. I just felt pregnant even though I didn't have symptoms at that point. I mean I went out to eat with my best friend and she ordered an alcoholic drink and asked me if I was going to get one and I told her no because I felt like I was pregnant. She laughed by I was....lol The girl from high school actually had bleeding every month so she had no indication from a missed period. It was so bizarre when she was telling me about it. She felt really guilty and just kept saying she couldn't believe she didn't know after having two kids.

Lol I was watching this show on TLC today about women who didn't know they were pregnant... I think it's just cause they're all fat and in denial LMAO!

WHAT?!?!? There is no way I could not notice this huge belly. I am already getting stares from strangers, how could I not notice myself?!? Plus, I couldn't ignore this baby kicking and rolling all over the place if I tried (posterior placenta though, but still) so...WTH is right.

Not to mention at my u/s today we ran into DH's friend who is six days overdue...and looks MASSIVE :eek: these stories are so hard to believe...but I guess it happens?!

I watch that TLC "I didn't know I was pregnant" show all the time and I have seen a couple that I could see not knowing. One girl had MS and had a relapse affecting the lower half of her body. One had invitro where she miscarried but it turned out that 3 had implanted and only 2 miscarried and the doctor never checked and they gave up so they didn't know. One got pregnant two months after her first and couldn't figure out why her heartburn and baby weight wouldn't go away and just thought her period never came back from BF then had the baby at 30 weeks. (Can u imagine 2 that close together?) One went to the doctor amd they told her she wasnt getting her period bc of something (i cant remeber what) but never bothered to test her! BUT I do have to agree that a lot of the time they seem to be overweight and in denial.
