I am 21, and I just recently had my second child. He was born on April 28t, 2006. I was totally unaware that I was pregnant. I went into a local InstaCare here in town, and they told me to go to the ER because I was in labor. Throughout my pregnancy, I had my period, did not show and only gained a few pounds. I had started working nights, so I would sit and munch all night on food out of boredem. I asked the docotrs after I delivered how I could not have known, and he said that he has seen it before. Sometimes young women who are in shape and physically fit, it will happen to. I am 5' and weigh 113 lbs. I am in great condition. He also said that when women have babies close together, it happens. After having a baby it takes 1 1/2 - 2 years for a woman's body to go back to normal. Sometimes when you have them closer togehter, your body gets "freaked out" as he said and things dont get back to normal like they are supposed to. So it happened to me and it has happend to other women and I am sure it will happen to more. My friend works in the hospital on the maternity ward. A women came into the E.R. and complained of stomach pains, they soon found out that she was in labor. She said she had no idea she was pregnant. (she was a large women also so it didnt show) they rushed her to the maternity ward and she delivered her baby. They had tests done on her and found out that she was using crack. So dyfs took the baby. I have looked after women who did not know they were pregnant until they went into labor. Not just young girls either, some of them were women who had had babies before.

It isn't very common but it does happen that a woman can go into labor, never knowing she was pregnant.

Nothing you do will make you go into labor until your body is ready to go into labor

You have to be pregnant first.

Well you can but if you get seasick there's no medicine to take for it since you are pregnant. And you can go into labor from week 38.

Going into labor is what the woman's body does to prepare to deliver the baby. Men can't get pregnant, therefore can't deliver a baby, hence have no need to go into labor.

I think yes it would help you go into labor then have good sex and a warm bath n you will go into labor

No. Frequent urination in the 9th month is because the baby at this point is pressing more on your bladder because he/she has nowhere else to go.

If you're a veteriarian, there are medicines to create labor. Otherwise you'll have to wait for nature to do its thing.

Yes, there are babies who die this late. If you go into labor it's premature labor though and not miscarriage.

Yes! Back in 1990, "The Bradys" pilot had the bride's pregnant sister and maid of honor go into labor and the ceremony had to be performed without her!

if you want to know if you can get pregnant than you can go and get a fertile test from a store like wallgreens ect. or you can go to your doctor and ask...

Yes, some women go much longer than 5 weeks. Some have even given birth without knowing they were pregnant.

Sure. Guinea pigs are pregnant for 4 months, so they can go into labor 1 or 2 weeks early, and still have healthy babies.

You will know that you can get pregnant after you start to have your period. it would as be a good thing to go to the doctors and ask them if you are able to become pregnant

Turtles lay eggs. They do not give birth to live young and do not go into labor.
