I believed I was pregnant
A woman who believed that she was 41 weeks found out she wasn't pregnant at all
What do you do when you’re 41 weeks
pregnant, scheduled for a caesarean, end up receiving a c-section and find that
there’s absolutely no baby?
According to The Stir, this is what happened to a 37-year-old
woman from Brazil. She was admitted to a hospital after experiencing some
abdominal pain. She was then scheduled for an emergency caesarean because during
the sonar the doctor was not able to find a heartbeat.
They went through with the C-section
because she looked pregnant and was experiencing all the symptoms of a pregnant
She went through all the motions including changing menstrual cycle, experiencing heavy PMS and even
her breasts became tender; she said she just knew that she was pregnant.
She waited and took a pregnancy test,
but the results were negative; however she didn’t believe the test because
her body was telling a totally different story.
She didn’t want to believe the results that
the test gave her; she made herself believe that the fault lay with the test,
not with her.
Then three weeks later, she got her period.
This is a common condition amongst women
when they are convinced that they are really pregnant; nothing and no one can persuade
them otherwise. When this happens, your body starts going through changes, you
might pick up a little weight, experience nausea and even not get your period
for a while. It’s like a mind-game that your body plays with you.
This is what the woman from Brazil
Do you think it's possible to 'carry' a false pregnancy to term?
