I think a lot of people know the program I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant at Discovery Mulher , but even before I debuted I had already witnessed a case and had already met one in the family. Well the first story I know and this since I understand myself, a case of someone who did not know she was pregnant was an aunt, she was already in the menopause phase and that was the 70s, where resources were less compared to nowadays. One fine day she was diagnosed with uterine fibroids and started treatment, but always showing symptoms of pregnancy. She did not believe she was pregnant since in the eyes of medicine it would be impossible due to age and also because she was already in menopause theoretically speaking. He only discovered pregnancy at 7 months of pregnancy.
The most impressive case of I was pregnant and I didn’t know was witnessed by me at the maternity hospital where Joana was born. A young woman arrived at the maternity emergency room, claiming severe kidney pain, and was thus referred to the emergency room. There the doctor ordered an x-ray examination because he suspected kidney stones. The exam was done and when the plate was revealed, the x-ray technician was in for a big surprise! She was pregnant and the baby was already fitted.
The pains she felt were labor pains and the girl was already crowning! She gave birth the same day I think about 3 hours later. She told me the story since we stayed in the same room and the movement and repercussion that the case had made the movement in the maternity room very large, everyone wanted to see the baby who had been born at term over 3400 and without the mother knew she was pregnant. This mother’s fear was that she was abused during her pregnancy and took various medications. She also said she went to the gym during her entire pregnancy. There were several risks that she exposed herself because she was not aware that she could have a baby there. The biggest concern was the lack of prenatal care, but the child was born well and super healthy.
She said that she menstruated normally and that her young daughter was still breastfeeding every day. The rush was great to get some clothes and the family members’ scare was also great since everyone was taken by surprise. Her husband was amazed, but still he received his daughter with all the love in the world. The x-ray technician came to the room several times and brought the x-ray plate and I couldn’t believe it, I asked him to see it, he also said that he had never seen anything like it in all his years of profession. He even asked the patient for the plate to serve as examples for his students in the x-ray course.
Another very controversial case of not knowing she was pregnant was in 2007, a girl who gave birth in mid-flight . Giovanna, 20, was recovering from stomach surgery for reduction, and was on her way to the hospital again for emergency surgery as she was suspected of bleeding because of the procedure. On board and in the air, she felt severe pain and started to say that “something” was coming out of her. At the time it was widely talked about in all media and I found this article on the Terra website.
Cases of women who discover pregnancy late at 7, 6 months of pregnancy are common, too. I have already read some reports and even some in this video of the Papo de Mãe program that dealt with this subject a while ago and I found it super interesting to address here too.
But then you ask yourself, but how can you? pregnant women feel different, feel the breasts bigger, feel the belly grow, feel the movements of the child … How can it? I also wonder today, how did she not notice that she was pregnant? I was more resigned to this story after the program I didn’t know I was pregnant, but I am still amazed by some impressive cases. Some women perceive the signs of pregnancy, but end up going unnoticed or by inexperience, or by denial, as this is one of the reasons for these cases to happen.
So, do you know any case of Didn’t know you were pregnant? Any stories of a surprise delivery? leave it described in the comments, I love reading these stories and I’m sure it’s a very controversial topic!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
