Can You Be Pregnant and Not Know It?

Various issues may maintain a lady from noticing the adjustments of their physique:

Worry or stress. The considered turning into a mom is so demanding for some girls that they go into deep denial — so deep that they don’t know they’re pregnant. “Denial is a really highly effective protection mechanism, making it doable to speak your self out of each symptom you will have. The motion in your stomach is ‘simply fuel,’ for example,” Cackovic says.

For instance, a youngster might deny or ignore a being pregnant as a result of they don’t need their mother and father to know they’ve had intercourse. A married lady might do the identical as a result of they bought pregnant by somebody aside from their accomplice. Some girls might have a denied being pregnant due to a psychological well being downside, like bipolar dysfunction or schizophrenia.

No signs. For some girls, the bodily tip-offs of being pregnant, like weight achieve, morning illness, heartburn, or fatigue, don’t occur. Or they’re so delicate {that a} lady simply doesn’t discover them. Relying on their physique kind, “it’s affordable for a lady to make it to 30 weeks with out wanting pregnant,” Cackovic says.

Weight adjustments. If a lady is chubby or their dimension typically goes up and down, they may not discover the additional child weight. In the event that they’re overweight, Cackovic says, they might not “have the bodily emotions of being pregnant” that non-obese girls really feel.

Analysis suggests a well-adjusted lady can have a denied being pregnant and nonetheless go on to be mom, particularly in the event that they’re capable of come to grips with the truth that they’re going to have a child, Cackovic says. For instance, some girls perceive and settle for it once they see an ultrasound picture of their youngster. However medical doctors often suggest a psychological well being analysis to determine what brought on them to disclaim their being pregnant. It’s additionally an essential step to stop youngster abuse and neglect, that are extra frequent after denied pregnancies than regular ones.
