Pregnant & Not Know?

Here are some astonishing statistics: Among pregnant women, 1 in 450 doesn't know her status until week 20 or later (more than halfway through the pregnancy), and 1 in 2,500 is oblivious until she actually goes into labor.

I know someone who found out at 5 months... baby started kicking and she freaked out, thinking she had a tumor or something! It was pretty funny when she found out she was so far along. She had a perfectly healthy baby, too and did not do anything dangerous during those 5 months so it worked out just fine. :-D I have watched the show "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" and it hard for me to believe that a woman would not know at some point in the first two trimesters that there is a baby in there. ;-)

Oh how sad... I guess we should all be grateful for our early prenatal care even if we do end up with busybodies for midwives. (me lol!)
