Woman Didn't Know She Was Pregnant Until She Started Giving Birth (VIDEO)

OMG 28

Jane ColvardStories in which women swear they didn't know they were pregnant up until the time they went into labor blow me away. This recent one out of Arizona is even harder to believe than usual as the woman, Jane Colvard, had no idea what was happening to her until she saw a baby's head coming out of her vagina.

I'm not kidding. According to AZCentral, the 30-year-old had no clue she had been carrying a baby for a good part of the last year. Last Wednesday she was in so much pain that she couldn't even drive herself to the hospital. When she got there, they suspected it might be kidney stones, so a nurse put her in a wheelchair until a doctor could see her.

When Colvard stood up, she thought she had "an accident," but instead she said looked down and saw the baby's head crowning. Can you even imagine?

Even crazier is the fact that she already has two sons, 12 and 6. You would think she would have recognized some of the symptoms, but clearly not. She told ABC15, "I gained some weight, but not to where I thought I was pregnant. I didn’t feel (the baby) move. I had my normal cycle.” Her previous deliveries were via C-section, so it's understandable that she didn't recognize labor symptoms. But still.

Fortunately, everything was fine, and her daughter, Isabella, was born at nearly term (36 weeks), weighing 4 pounds, 15 ounces. Mom and baby are both doing great.

Almost as surprised as Colvard was the baby's father, Brian Ojinaga, who's described as a long-time friend. Clearly a good friend, but she hadn't even seen him in seven months. So imagine his surprise?

They seem to be handling it well, however, and say they just need a little time to adjust. Colvard told ABC, "I’m just curious to see what (other) surprises she will bring me." 

Can you imagine this happening to you?

This is amazing to me. How can someone be so disconnected from their own body?

Normally with these stories I feel a mixture of shock and disbelief but reading the details;that she had a normal cycle,didn't gain weight around the middle ("where you'd think") and not feeling any movement,along with the daily hustle and bustle of being a mom of 2 and daily life, I can see how she wouldn't have guessed that she was pregnant. With those aspects of it, I don't think I would suspect being pregnant either. I'm so glad I've had my tubes tied...(yes, I Know that's not 100% but it's pretty damn close.Close enough that I don't ever worry about it and if I were in this woman's situation, I would NEVER suspect being pregnant.)Though as the saying goes, "shit happens". lol.

I've seen a few episodes of that show "I Didn't Know I was Pregnant" and sometimes you realize they didn't decipher the obvious signs, but every now and then is a story when you can understand why someone didn't know they were pregnant. One lady was skinny, a size 6, and then lost some weight, didn't look or feel pregnant at all. Surprise! I knew I was pregnant at 3 weeks, it was very obvious to me that something had changed.

I knew a woman who had a baby without knowing she was pregnant. It was her third. I saw her regularly (almost daily) for months leading up to the birth, had even seen her two days prior. She did not appear pregnant. She wore her regular clothes, continued having her regular cycle, and then suddenly went into labor. Craziest thing I'd ever seen.

I can't imagine being that out of touch with my body. She sounds like she has a smoker's laugh so that probably contributed to the small birth weight. Congratulations to them both, though.

I agree with you tuffymama, how could u be so disconnected? I knew I was pregnant when I was about 2/3 weeks, I was 17 and using protection ( IUD) but I just knew. I think it's very sad that a woman's life could be so overwhelming that she is out of touch with herself enough to not know she is pregnant

These stories are always interesting... but for me, even better, was seeing those news anchors. I used to live in Mesa, and those were the faces I saw every day when I watched the news!! Nice to see them again. :)
