My co-worker didn't know she was 8 months pregnant?

My co-worker is plus size and she works as a CNA nurse at the nursing home I work at as a receptionist and she has been doing the hard work like lifting patients up and moving beds and then the other day she had an "accident" at one of the patient's room that the paramedics were called and rushed her to the hospital. She told us that the doctors said she was pregnant, 8 months along and we was like "you didn't know you were pregnant?" and she said no. She even said she had her monthly period, no morning sickness, didn't feel the baby inside her, her nipples weren't sore and no change in appetite (LUCKY!!!). This reminds me of the show I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant and my co-worker would've been a great candidate of that show. She says her baby is okay and she's gonna have a boy. Has this happened to you?

  • I didn't find out until I was 5 months. I thought I was gaining weight, but I didn't get sick, I still had my monthly, no signs what so ever... Until I felt the baby move. Then I went in and sure enough...

  • I know someone who didn't realize it until she was 6 months pregnant. She was never regular and wasn't sick and just thought she was gaining weight because of stress. At first, she thought the baby moving was gas. Then she couldn't chalk it up to gas. She says in hindsight, she thinks that she was in denial because she didn't WANT to be pregnant as she was only 20, unmarried, her and her boyfriend had broken up and she was still in college.
