  • yep b/c babies are very common(1 in 100) thats actually better odds than most would think. hey look at it this way you are half way through pregnancy without even knowing or feeling pregnant.......lucky you! most of us have to deal with the full 40 weeks of waiting and feeling like crap. you just found out and you only have 20 weeks left.

  • lol. i had a different take than PP. i would say sorry you missed out on the first half of your pregnancy, but at least you do have the next 20 weeks to enjoy :)

    it DOES happen. there is a show on tlc called "i didn't know i was pregnant" and they are moms who didn't realize until they were in labor... so... YES it happens. some women don't have noticeable symptoms, and some have bleeding like a period throughout pregnancy.

    congrats and gl!

  • Hey, I didn't know until I missed a fourth I had been known to miss up to three before. When I missed the fourth, I knew something was up. I took a test at the health clininc. They sent me for an U/S the next day. I was 19 wks and 3 days. LOL I never had a clue.

  • I was 12 weeks pregnant when i found out, and I was on bc too. its crazy and my mom flipped saying i wasnt taking my pills (i was 21) shes kinda weird about that stuff. From what my ob told me its common
