We’ve all heard it before, and the recent stories of women in the news thinking they were sick, being rushed to the hospital only to find out they were in labor has struck up a hefty load of questions and conversation around this topic. I mean it’s quite hard to believe, but having a surprise full term baby, isn’t as uncommon as you may think. But with all of the physical and emotional changes a women goes through during a pregnancy its not surprising one would be confused by this concept. This phenomenon is called a cryptic pregnancy. Here are 6 reasons why this can happen:
- Women who are overweight or obese, may not notice the extra weight they put on from the pregnancy. The fat their body is already storing can mask the movement of a child inside of them.
- Some women naturally don’t have a regular period. Going a few months with out Misses Flow is the “norm” for some lucky ladies! So missing it wouldn’t necessarily make them think they are preggers!
- At home pregnancy tests aren’t always correct (usually user based errors). If you use the test too soon you may be lead to believe you aren’t pregnant. Drinking too much water prior to a test can actually dilute your urine and keep the hormone from reacting with the test the way it needs to.
- Some babies are less active than others. Typically by the second trimester the baby starts to move around, but for some it can be even later!
- It could be perimenopause! Women in their late 40′s often begin to have the onset of symptoms that come with menopause. The problem with this is that most of these symptoms are the same as the ones you get during a pregnancy. It isn’t hard at that age to blow off those symptoms to mean the coming of age!
- If you tend to have a sensitive stomach, and struggle with G.I. tract irritation, you may be more likely to blow off nausea, bloat, and any other upset stomach issues like cramps.
