I've seen a couple documentaries about women who have been pregnant but they didn't know it until they had the baby. Unfortunately I haven't been able to watch these documentaries in their entirety so I don't really understand what's going on with these women.
Recently my step-cousin had a baby (at 18 years old, very religious family... you can see where this is going) and she claimed that she didn't know she was pregnant until she had the baby.
My question is how? How can you NOT know you're pregnant? You can't feel the baby kicking? Is this just an excuse for some women, or is this a psychological phenomenon? Is there any kind of medical term or "disease" that explains this?
Thanks for the input

Wow, after reading some of these stories... I can now understand the special circumstances behind a woman not knowing she is pregnant. Sounds like a bit of incompetency on the part of some of those doctors.
I'm going to ask my Aunt about my cousin's predicament and see if I can get the deets. I'm curious about the legitimacy of her claim...
And yes, nicunana, doctors DO walk on water before breakfast. They also don't have stinky poop. Who knew?
