12/31/2005: I'm tempted to look in the dictionary, under "unobservant"...
According to this story from Agence France-Presse, apparently it's possible for a woman to be pregnant, and not be aware of it: New mum thought baby was kebab
A WOMAN rushed to hospital with tummy trouble, fearing she had eaten a dodgy kebab, was shocked to give birth instead, a British newspaper reported today.Then again, according to some of my sources, The Sun's credibility is something less than that of The National Enquirer, though probably a bit more (though not much) than that of The Weekly World News...
Helen Smitham, 25, of Distington in northwest England, had no idea she was pregnant when she complained of feeling a bit rough – with an iffy kebab thought to blame.
Her mother rushed her to the nearby West Cumberland Hospital where she gave birth so quickly that doctors did not even have time to tell her she was expecting.
Her baby son Deaton was born on December 24 weighing four pounds and 11 ounces (2.1kg) said The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling daily.
