I love "I didn't know I was Pregnant". It's kind of my guilty pleasure

I did somewhat with my last pregnancy, but haven't with this one. They usually just make me fuming mad because of all the unnecessary interventions I see.

I DVR "I Didn't Know I was Pregnant" but only watch it once a week or so if I have time. It's like watching a car accident - I can't take my eyes off of it.

I dont DVR anything but Pregnant in Heels so I wouldn't say I religious watch any of them. But when I happen to catch A BABY STORY, it always has me in tears at the end. Not tears of joy but of absolute terror of having to push a baby out in a few months. Then I swear I will never watch the show again. A few weeks later, Im back for more.

I also like watching I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS PREGNANT but usually just for laughs. Every episode seems to be the same. They thought they had indigestion for 9 months. Then they thought they had gas instead of labor. Then out comes baby. I think its mostly fake - i have a hard time believing its possible to not know!

It's totally possible not to know. My DH oldest niece didn't know. She went to the dr with severe cramps/back pain and they rushed her in for a csection. She had an almost 10lb baby girl! She is very overweight so that probably had a lot to do with it.

I dvr a lot of various ones and yep I am just horrified most of the time. It really is like watching a train wreck the entire time.

Occasionally. The one I watch the most of was Pregnant in Heels. I also like A Baby Story.

Oh and my mom didn't find out she was pregnant with one of my brothers until she was 20 weeks and could feel him moving. She never had many pregnancy symptoms with any of us and had a perfectly logical excuse for each thing she was having, until she felt kicks. Crazy!

I knew a gal who didnt find out till she was like 26 weeks preggo...

I used to watch I didnt know I was Pregnant, but havent lately.

I will watch A baby Story or Bringing Home Baby or the one on Multiples...

I do find it frustrating watching those, at the amount of interventions... The one gal laboured 1 hours before the doctor gave her Pic becuase she wasnt progressioning quick enough.

One of my old friends just found out about a month or so ago that she was 21 weeks along with #3 when she started feeling kicking. She is overweight which masked the bump and she started a new job at the start of the first tri so that was why she thought she was so tired.
A few years ago, one of my other friend's softball teammate went into labor without knowing she was pregnant. My friend said that she played a big game the day before and looked totally normal, maybe just a little thicker around the middle than usual. The next day, they got the announcement that she had a surprise baby.
Crazy! I can't imagine not knowing that I was pregnant though. It must happen more to people who are not paying attention to the cues their bodies are sending.
I did watch one episode of IDKIWP where the girl actually went to her dr a few times complaining of back pain and other symptoms and the dr never thought to check if she was pregnant and just kept prescribing pain meds. Screwed up!

I could see not knowing until you were 20 weeks maybe. But how do you miss the kicking? How do you not notice you arent having normal periods? Unless you are really really obese, how can you not tell there is a human in there? How do you miss the extra CM? The constipation? The aches? Even if you dont have all the symptoms Ive yet to meet anyone who doesnt have a single clear sign that something is off that would prompt them to take a test. How could you really be THAT out of tune with your body?

I suppose it happens but it just seems really unlikely.
