If I'm not mistaken, you're one of the safe ones. Should you get into such a situation, I'm about 99%+ positive you would know

Your partner would also probably have words for you

At nearly 38 weeks pregnant right now, I cannot even fathom how this is possible. Here child must not be active. I am convinced my little guy is doing an Ironman at least once a week, and training hard the rest of it. Not to mention all the crazy things he's done to my body! I just cannot even fathom not knowing...and her baby was still decent weight. Craziness.

Not much room for hiding out in secret for too long. Pretty neat though to be able to get through 9 months without all the anxiety and waiting!


I'm 5'9 and all body (I have seriously short legs). 32 weeks pregnant and if you were to look at my belly right now there woudl be no question that there is a baby moving inside it (seriously, what the hell is it doing in there?) I look less pregnant than friends due after me that are shorter, but definitely look pregnant now.


So, see? Really must have just been in total denial, having total faith in the V. Just chalked all the discomforts up to a big lunch and bad gas, I suppose.

I saw an interview with her this morning.  Couple of interesting notes...

  • Evidently her first two kids were very active in her belly -- this one was indeed much more mellow
  • She believes that the run training she was doing kept her weight even during the pregnancy -- basically just shifted weight from her to the baby.  (Obviously this doesn't happen all the time but my wife actually lost weight during all 3 of her pregnancies so it does happen)
  • As mentioned above, her husband had had a vasectomy -- so pregnancy was not top of mind
  • She didn't mention this, but it's possible that she attributed some of her other pregnancy symptoms to the effects of marathon training

Dude, why are you in denial? ;P

And, FTR, as a woman who gained a ridiculous amount of weight with all three babies, your wife is a complete enigma to me!

if you shift weight from you to baby your body changes and in fact would make the presence of another HUMAN BEING more obvious.
Having had 2 full term pregnancies and 4 others that unfortunately ranged from 10-16 weeks before they ended I cannot imagine not knowing.

Actual conversation with our veterinarian...

  • Wife:  "Oh, by the way, our dogs are going to have a playmate soon -- we're having a baby!"
  • Vet:  "Congratulations!  When?"
  • Wife:  "In a couple of weeks."
  • Vet:  (awkwardly)  "Oh...Are you adopting?"

Now -- in fairness -- all the other signs were there in spades (lots of kicking).  But there's a pretty broad range of experiences out there.   Given about 4 million US births a year -- you're bound to get a few cases at the far ends of the bell curve.
