  • i watched a show once that had this and its where women basically want to be pregnant so bad they actually "create" a pregnancy in their head. gain baby weight, get morning sickness, skip periods, basically get symptoms of pregnancy from wanting it so bad but at the end of the 40 weeks nothing happens.

    weird and hard to explain.

  • I think it has something to do with a twin - and the twin eventually is absorbed by the other fetus, but it happens really early..... I could be mistaken but I swear I've heard that!

  • a phantom baby is a twin that is not developed & ens up back in the woman's sytem. it's kind of a strange thing to explain
