"i didn't know I was pregnant"

so i was watching the show i didn't know i was pregnant last week, then one of my friends posted a myspace bulletin saying that she had had a baby satuday without having a clue that she was pregnant...
i am pregnant with my first and with all the fun effects of pregnancy, i have no idea how anyone could give birth without knowing that they were pregnant. can anyone help me understand this? I would ask my friend, but I think given the circumstances it would be a little insensitive and a lot un-supportive...

  • I had this happened to a friend. It's rare, I think. She was a teenager at the time and did a lot of track and field. One day she felt pressure and out popped the baby. She said she didn't know because she stayed in great shape and had periods.

  • I don't get it either. I just had my first a few weeks ago and I knew I was pregnant 4 days before I even missed a period and there is NO WAY I could have not known for the whole 9 months! I wonder if these people really truly had no clue or if some of them were just ignorant.

  • I totally think they're just hiding it or mentally deficient.

  • op- even if you consider that maybe she didn't have morning sickness (i don't) and didn''t gain any weight (i myself have lost ten pounds and am 20 weeks) how can you not feel the baby in there? my baby girl kicks me so hard I can see it. not bashing my friend or anything, and she is very intelligent, but how is it possible? I just don't get it...
