Pregnant and Not Know?

Well, this is a first for me. I've seen the shows where women are at mid-term pregnancy or even in labor before they realize they are pregnant. My son and his long time girlfriend have just experienced a similar situation. She has two children, 12 and 10 and suffers from ovarian cysts. She says that sometimes the cyst are so large that her stomach swells and becomes very hard, giving her the appearance of being pregnant. My son is 33 and this is his first child. For whatever reason, he 'assumed' he was infertile. Now, we have a pregnant (very pregnant) lady who has a doctor's appointment on Monday. I'm excited, as well as shocked. Has anyone else had a similar situation? Is it uncommon to be 5, 6, 7 months pregnant and not realize it?

  3. Wow looking back at all of my pregnancies It would have been impossible for me to not know, but i was very sick(barfing) with mine. But if she has symptoms of cysts that could be the case. How crazy that must be!! But what a blessing!! Congrats to you and your family!!!

  4. I was 4 months pregnant before knowing a thing! I actually went to the doctor for cysts and she was checking for cysts when she said....did you know you were pregnant? That is a baby right there! I was SHOCKED! But so excited as she is now 7 and the light of my life!

  6. My cousin went into labor and didn't even know she was pregnant, so it is definitely possible.

  7. A lady who had her son a couple of weeks before my oldest didn't know that she was pregnant until 3 weeks before she had him. Talk about scrambling around to get things ready!! Lol - She was over weight though to begin with, like majorly, and even though they did blood draws, and urine pregnancy tests, everything came back negative. I think the only thing they didn't do was an ultrasound. Why, I have NO clue.
