We've all heard the story of the woman or girl who goes into the doctor and find out they're either VERY pregnant..or worse...in labor....and had no idea. I've heard people say WRT later term elective

I know it happens but honestly I think we have to have some protections for the unborn as well. It is rare and IMO falls under poop happens we cant make laws that take into account EVERY possible situation.

Denial is a very powerful thing.


Personally, I have diagnosed a young woman's pregnancy *at term* when she came to the hospital for constipation.

Nope.


I don't support abortion unless the mother is at risk past the first trimester.

I highly doubt I would support her decision but I would certainly support her right to make it.

<<Denial is a very powerful thing.>>


Denial IS powerful...but then again I could very well see where someone COULD *miss* a pregnancy.


I am BFing my son, I haven't had an AF since his birth.*Theoretically* I could be pregnant right now and have absolutely no clue. I am using the copper IUD for BC though. IF a woman was BFing and became pregnant on failed B/C it might take her several months to find out. My placenta made it so that even at 9 months pregnant I RARELY felt more then flutters of a kick from my son (talk about scaring the crap out of me). Had I been "fluffy" and had the sort of pregnancy I had with my son (no m/s , very little felt movement due to placenta placement) AND not *expecting* AF because I was BFing. I can easily see how it might have nothing to do with *denial* to not guess I was PG.

That's true, it is possible for someone not expecting a period to miss other signs of pg.

I think she'd play merry hell trying to get one at that stage and it might just have to be a suck it up situation. I'm pretty sure after viability it's only in the case of mother will die.
