    Default Are they true stories? 4 months PG and we had no idea

    Can't help but ask this!
    Does this really happen? This has always intrigued me, people who have mistaken bleeding for periods, false negatives, relevant explanations for pg symptoms etc and then one day :shock: \/

    Just wondered if this sort of thing really happened to anyone or anyone they know of? How they eventually worked it out and who has the record for the longest without realising #-o

    My friends cousin, didn't find out until 7 months i think or there abouts, have no idea how, surely she would have known but she says she didn't.

    I'm 6 months and even if i hadn't suffered awful morning sickness the expanding belly is a sure sign and this girl is not big either...

    It amazes me but sounds like it can happen...

    My step-sister didn't know till she was 6mths. She actively played netball at State level etc as well during that time. They raced out and brought everything but unfortunately lost baby Aaron (who would be turning 18 next year), 4 weeks later.

    I didn't realise with dd until about 3 months, but mainly as I was 18 and never took any notice of dates and stuff. I picked up when I noticed dust on the box of tampons in the cupboard!

    I didn't drink then (I can hardly believe it myself!!!), and I was still recovering from major surgery so a miracle she is.

    It was WAAAY better that way because it takes soooo long when you find out straightaway.

    Isabelle is now 13 years old and the best kid in the whole wide world.

    a friend of the family - was on the injection so no AF and left it a bit too long before getting her next one - only about two-three weeks - so Dr did a pg test just to check and whadaya know she's pg - had a scan - and she was 5 months!! she was only 17 so it was a heck of a shock...

    I found out at 11.5 weeks with Lily. I had what i thought was AF but was breakthrough bleeding and because i have PCOS and my cycles were anywhere between 14 and 49 days I didn't think too much when AF didn't come again. But I also has m/s from about weeks 5 to 15. I seriously thought I was just ill, the thought of pregnancy never occured to me until my mum asked if I was(mother instinct i spose) and I just broke down crying and said I don't know! I was 17 at the time.

    i read in one of the pg mags about a girl who went into hospital for what she thought was appendisitis, only to find out she was full term pg and in labour. :-s

    her DP still wasnt happy about it so makes me wonder if deep down she knew but didnt know how to deal with it knowing he didnt want another child?

    Ok I know of 2 people that it happened to...........

    A girl I work with didn't find out till she was 3months along.She had suspected but the hpt she was doing kept coming up negative!Also she had a b/t at the doc's and that came up negative...but 2 months later....a positive.

    A friend of a friend didn't know she was pregnant, she was 7 months along and just didn't realise.Apparently her periods were irregular and she never guessed she'd be pregnant!

    Linda, I read that story too. It was their first child and I think the guy was just shocked(as you would be) But I don't think she did know. I mean how irresponsible would that be if she did? I think they husband was mainly mad at the hospital because they wouldn't tell him until 20mins after the birth what was wrong with her. They actually thought she knew she was in labour until she said whats wrong and the midwife is like your having a baby and shes like WHAT! LOL Pretty amazing story really. Great one to tell the grand kids anyhow lol.

    My mum met someone recently who didn't know she was pregnant until she gave birth. She's actually really embarressed about it and doesn't like to tell anyone.

    If we hadn't planned ours... I'm just wondering if I would have noticed yet. I can easily go 4-5 months without a period coz of my pcos, and at this stage of pg, I'm not feeling a lot of movement... could still easily be mistaken for wind or something in my tummy. I could just be getting a pot belly too. My mum didn't realise until she was 4.5 months, coz she had irregular periods.

    Tulip. I wore all my normal clothes right up till the day I gave birth to my first born, obviously I knew I was pregnant but when I was 7mths nobody that hadn't seen me in a while realised I was.

    When i found out i was pregnant with Kimberley i only thought i was early on in my pregnancy. When the doctor sent me to the hospital 3 weeks later for a scan because i was having sharp pains in my right side they found that i was 16.3 weeks pregnant.

    I had spotting up until then so i just thought it was a light period because of being off the pill and under stress at work.

    A good friend of mine didn't find out til she was 29w along. She got her 'period' every month like clockwork (rare but it can happen). She had only DTD the once and used a condom so never imagined she could be pg. She put on some weight, but not a belly bump, the bub was carried really high. She actually tried dieting to combat weight gain but kept passing out and went and saw the doctor numerous times about blacking out, heartburn, swollen ankles etc...she reported ALL her symptoms! Eventually she was sent for an u/s scan because the doc decided either she was pg (could obviously feel a lump in her abdomen) or she had a tumour. As she figured she couldn't be pg she was sure she had a tumour. When the u/s person put the probe on her tummy, not knowing the background to the story, just blurted out 'so you're 7 months pregnant, right?' My friend nearly fell off the examination table, she was so shocked.

    So it really can happen! Oh, and she was 30yo at the time, not a naive 15yo!

    So birth looks like the record! These stories are AMAZING =D> could you just imagine if you were carrying on with life, busy, maybe stressed and and whamo you were like full on pregnant? I would love the shopping aspect though!

    I have PCOS and am sitting on CD 96 and I have never had a cycle over 50 days. I have felt what I feel are real symptoms, but I did do a hpt a few weeks ago and bfn. Plus I doubt that I am ovulating on my own. Hopefully the specialist in a fortnight will have us on our way and the real action will begin! [-o<

    The reason my ticker has gone awol is because I can't seem to set up a cycle long enough..it was keeping count on its own and then I went to update the image and couldn't get my cycle back!

    My friend recently found out she was pregnant @ 30 weeks. The reason she didn't know was last year she'd had an injury which caused AF to stop. It had returned and then stopped again so she thought nothing of it. She got a bit sick but just thought it was due to being a school teacher and working around kids who had the flu and passed it on. She finally went to her Dr saying she was worried that AF hadn't returned and they tested her and she was pg. They did an u/s and the baby was facing toward her back and kicking in that direction she said she had felt something but thought it was just wind moving through her bowels or something, but now it all added up for her. I couldn't believe it, so she'll be giving birth 5 weeks after me and she was only saying about 3 months ago how she was planning on waiting another few years before having kids, ooops!

    This is not exactly the same but I have a cousin whose girlfriend was pregnant and went into labour and NOBODY knew she was pregnant at all. She was a large girl and everyone just thought she was getting fatter until one day the girls parents rang him at his parents house and said "J is in labour so you better get to the hospital' - his parents almost died!!

    This did happen to a friend of my mum's. She thought she was going through menopause and putting on a bit of weight etc which is all part of it. She didn't find out until she started having bad stomach pains and went to hospital only to dicover she was actually in labour :shock: Imagine having no time at all to prepare for a new baby!
