Have you ever met someone that faked their pregnancy?

Why fake a pregnancy, you knew you wasn't pregnant in the first place. You lied, you just tried to do it for attention. I hate people like this!

  • I think for a person to fake a pregnancy for attention, there are a lot of other issues going on with them, so I just ignore it. I don't want to get caught up in their drama because it's a no win situation. I can't prove they were pregnant so why say anything???

  • A girl in my state did just this for her senior project. She did it as a social experiment.

  • Not personally, but I have known of a few who did. They are, for the most part, unbalanced. One girl in our town faked a pregnancy, then faked a miscarriage, then ripped open the belly of a pregnant woman and took her baby, left the mom's body in the woods, and took the baby home. She is in prison now. I just say this to let you know it's not something to be taken lightly. It's a very serious problem.

  • OMG @ Nanny, I think I read about this...she went to her house and dragged her to the woods. That is awful. I cried when I heard about it. I think the mom died, but what happened to the baby?

  • The one person I heard of doing it was to get her BF to marry her. Didn't happen. Probably a good thing since both were real "winners" at that point.

    The mom's parents have the baby, and he is doing well, or was the last time I heard. The mom did die, and the woman is in prison for murder.
