EB member Rosalie had no idea she was pregnant until she gave birth to her son! Read the story here: http://www.essentialbaby.com.au/birth/birt...0528-2n8ez.html

Wow!  Congratulations on the unexpected arrival of Nicholas

I don't mean to be rude but how overweight was she? I just can't imagine not noticing movements. A baby rolling around at 35 weeks feels nothing like gas (& I'm overweight by a lot myself!)

Beautiful story. So glad you got you're third chid wub.gif

This terrifies me though and is the reason I am prone to taking random pregnancy tests when I'm feeling a little off tongue.gif

But she went to the doctor for the movements and the doctor told her it was IBS. So you wouldn't then think "baby", surely.

I'm 34 weeks pregnant and overweight and I don't feel many baby movements because of her position and my fatness. I still don't feel pregnant lol so I can see how easy it is to miss especially if you don't know you are pregnant.

Congrats again on beautiful Nicholas.  original.gif

I read a magazine article years ago about a nurse who gave birth without knowing she was pregnant.
She had a photo of her in a bikini the day before the baby was born, hardly a tummy on her. She said she put on a kilo all pregnancy, and even though shed had a child already, she had no clue she was pregnant.
Something to do with the way the baby was lying along her spine from memory.
It sounds impossible, but it does happen.

A colleague of mine was in the same boat, she had gained a little weight but nothing to suggest that she was pregnant.  She had been to the doctors for general fatigue and other illnesses but noone had done any blood tests or pregnancy tests of any kind - obviously now she can see that it was all pregnancy symptoms!  Her daughter was induced at 36 weeks due to complications with mum's health.

What a shock!

Thank you for the lovely comments hheart.gif

I never in a million years thought this would be our story, but it is and i am so grateful we both made it through okay.

Tilly- Yes i am overweight, i also had an anterior placenta and he was posterior.

I never felt body parts and the movements that i felt, were quite small. I was told it was related to IBS when i would ask my doctor.

I really appreciate the support from the EB community, i received so many messages and well wishes which mean the world to me wub.gif

I will post a more detailed version later on in the birth stories forum original.gif

CONGRATULATIONS:) what a surprise... And a shock that must have been lol.. My bubs is now 5 months old and I found out at 11 weeks I was pregnant, only because I had mucked up my month for my depo and would have had to of done a test anyway.. Finding out in the public toilets at a shopping centre that you are pregnant is not how I usually found out original.gif
