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.
