RE: I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant

I'll admit it, I have been known to watch a few episodes of I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant. ... and by 'a few,' I mean more like 8.  Each episode features 2 separate tales, albeit almost every one follows the same format:

  • gal unknowingly becomes pregnant
  • time passes, and then:
  • go to bathroom
  • severe back pain
  • go to bathroom
  • possibly constipated
  • thoughts of possible kidney/ appendix issues
  • go to bathroom
  • pain gets worse
  • reach down
  • feel goopy baby between legs
  • panic
  • go to hospital
  • OR 
  • poop baby out in toilet
  • (can you imagine coming into the world via being squirted into a toilet!?)
  • baby is born
  • new mother admits to smoking and drinking throughout pregnancy
  • panics about health of baby
  • baby is always healthy
  • ... every show ends with new mother saying, "in hindsight there were definitely signs that I was pregnant"

Why am I fascinated by this?


  1. I am fascinated that such a show exists! Okay, I could see one, maybe two cases of this. But a whole series of these shows? It boggles. Just boggles!

  2. exactly! the fact that there are enough cases like this to create an entire tv series is just crazy ... who would have thought?

  3. I have a friend who (has not appeared on show) but claims this of her 2nd child. She is a tiny girl who had a baby 2 years previously....I DO NOT BELIEVE it. I think they know and just have some reason for not telling. Personally I have been pregnant 3 times, I don't know how you would not know.
