How does a woman not know she is pregnantfor the ENTIRE pregnancy? I totally get that many women mistake early symptoms of pregnancy for not eating well, not getting enough sleep, indigestion, anything. I can understand a woman not know, for let's say, 5 months that she is pregnant.
I watched this show with my mom last weekend and we were dumbfounded. A woman gives birth to twins in the toilet and never knew she was pregnant. She gained 7 lbs during her bedrest due to health issues and figured the weight gain was because she was bedridden. But honestly, wouldn't you notice that there was something moving inside you?
Mom and I just looked at each other...HUH?? We grow big babies in my family, gotta love the German bloodline, but to not know something moving, stretching, growing inside you..I don't get how you wouldn't wonder or wouldn't figure that out.
Am I the only one in disbelief?

If you have watched the show then you would know how it's possible. Ignorance is around CM. For those who haven't maybe you should and educate yourself because it is possible.

I'm overweight, and I couldn't miss it, my baby kicks the crap out of me. U couldn't see it or feel it from the outside until 27 weeks, but I sure as hell didn't miss when the baby was kicking me or my cervix! its like "owe, my cervix....your kicking my fucking cervix!!!" You just cant mistake that for anything.

Maybe Anon:29 hasn't ever carried a human parasite. It's not ignorance for those of us mothers who have been through pregnancy and we've watched the show. Comparing our experiences and watching that....even the doctors that try to "explain" it come off as far fetched.
Actually I have 3 kids so I know WTH I'm talking about. My mother didn't even know she was pregnant with my sister till her 7 month and she bled the whole time. Even now when I have gas(which we all do) I swear it feels like a baby kicking me, so I can see how some ignore it and thought it was just "gas" Another thing you said was "comparing", that is your first mistake. Never compare your pregnancy to others and assume because you felt a certain way or so so happened to you, it will with others. WRONG.
