    This happened to a friend of mine a few years ago.She found out she was pregnant at the beginning of May and had a 6lb son at the end of May.I had seen her regularly throughout the pregnancy and didn't have a clue,no obvious weight gain, nothing.She had been running around on the beach in shorts and a tee-shirt the weekend before she found out.

    A woman in our town had the same thing happen. She was a larger woman and didn't show. But, she said she had her period throughout. Ended up feeling sick and going in the bathroom to poo and out came a baby. Don't remember how big it was.

    I never buy this story. I think it is a major form of denial. How could you carry a child for 40 weeks and not wonder, "What is that stange lump that is moving across my abdomen?" or What the heck keeps hitting me in the bladder? Maybe I should get that checked out?"

    Uh how?! I never understand stories like that. Periods can be irregular, etc...so I could buy that, but how would you not be able to tell? What pregger doesn't have the "waddle"?

    My daughter's sister in law had this happen to her. She is and always has been a very large girl. She had two children already. She was very meticulous during her other two pregnancies, quit smoking, wouldn't dye her hair, ate veggies, all that.
    She was at my daughter's place for a 4th of July party. At 5 am on the fifth, I get a phone call, my daughter is at the hospital. The girl went to the john, thought she had to go, and had the baby, had locked herself in the bathroom, and woke up the whole family screaming and screaming, was totally freaked out.
    Swore on a stack of Bibles she had her period thoughout, and her husband said so too. As she had two kids under age 3 climbing all over her day and night, and often in the bed with them, said she never noticed kicks, etc, and like I said, she was a big girl.
    She was so embarrassed at the hospital. Even more embarrassed that her dad had to come and break down the bathroom door to get her out, standing there naked with a baby in her arms. Poor thing.
    I was almost six months with my second before I knew. Had no period since first was born, breastfeeding. Started weaning her at one year. Seemed to have problems losing my weight suddenly. One morning, felt my first kick me in her sleep. Suddenly realized she was in her crib in the next room. THAT woke me up. Felt funny telling people in August I was expecting and it was coming in November!!!!

    Had a large female about 25 primigravida come to the ED with a "kidney stone". The stone weighed 6 lbs 7 oz and had a penis.
