Remember that line from Knocked Up? “Are you the lady who doesn’t realize she’s pregnant until she’s sitting on the toilet and the kid pops out?” Part of the reason everyone laughed is that this shit happens. Take Issy McMurdo of Warwickshire, England, a bar waitress who went to hospital with intense cramps, assuming it was something she ate. Doctors explained that she was nine months pregnant and going into labor.
I simply had no idea I was pregnant. I just thought I’d put on a little bit of weight. Then when my ankles swelled up I assumed it was because I was on my feet all the time at the pub. I even went to Alton Towers where pregnant women are warned not to go on the rides. I was flung upside down on the Air ride at speeds of up to 50mph and hurled down drops of 53ft. So it was quite lucky I didn’t go into labor there!
We know, Issy! What a LOL that would have been! Crazypants and her less-than-observant boyfriend are now the proud parents of Oscar, six pounds and two ounces. They should have named him Dizzy.
