I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant - Military Style (Video)
Thursday, September 20, 2012
"I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" has got to be one of my favorite television shows. It's got drama, comedy, and always ends on a happy note. Well, there's now a military candidate for the reality show. A British soldier gave birth Tuesday at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, and she claims she had no idea she was carrying a child.
British pregnancy expert Belinda Phipps, told the Associated Press stress may have played a role in why the soldier was oblivious to her condition:
"It could be that she was so very focused on other things, and because she was in a life-or-death scenario, that she simply didn't recognize that she was pregnant...
"Not everyone has a very big baby bump, some women carry their baby far inside."
The Guardian reports the British Ministry of Defence (that's how they spell it) has sent a team of pediatricians to Camp Bastion to accompany the new mom and baby home to the UK.
I've never been blessed with children, but many moms I know say they simply don't understand how a woman could not know she was pregnant. Agree or disagree?
