Cryptic Pregnancy

All day yesterday I had a sensation or feeling that somebody was kicking me from inside my stomach, kinda like a little elf poked me, just for laughs. And you could physically see it too. There was no pattern to it or anything, just poking.  I have no idea how it feels when a baby kicks so I can´t really relate to that. It was a whole day event!

Also I was nauseas in the morning, weak and almost past out when I made quiche for dinner but tried to be very composed and took big breaths, in and out. Nausea and weakness is not really anything new in my life because I have a lot of allergies and food intolerances. That just comes with it! I can’t say I am used to it but it’s nothing new.

With allergies and food intolerances my tummy sometimes balloons up like I am pregnant so I have had the big belly experience many times. I really need to be aware what I eat. When I want something that I am not allowed to eat, I will just brace myself for all the bad and ugly 🙂 That’s life for me!

Anyways, I googled it to see what this poking could be because it did not go away or I didn’t even know how to make it go away.  In these cases I always turn to my very knowledgeable friend GOOGLE. Because he knows everything! With pictures and videos and all!


And I found something that I have never even heard before….let me just copy paste some of it here so it would be accurate….

A Cryptic Pregnancy is a pregnancy where there is little or no detectable hCG in the mothers system, due to a hormonal imbalance in the mother. The fetus may go undetected by mother and doctors, until delivery. Some of these women do not know that they are indeed pregnant and some of them are aware. The women who do know, have a difficult time getting confirmation of the pregnancy due to negative, hCG tests including home pregnancy tests and hCG blood tests. Characteristics of a cryptic pregnancy are; negative urine and blood pregnancy test, continued periods, typical pregnancy symptoms, and at times, negative ultrasounds. Even with these issues, the woman continues to experience pregnancy symptoms including the sensation of fetal movement. Cryptic pregnancies are typically carried between 2 and 5 years due to slow growth of the fetus, caused by low hCG, due to the hormonal imbalance.


You have probably heard of a TV show called “I didn’t know I was pregnant” . I have watched a few episodes of it and always wonder, how do you not know? There are so many symptoms. But I guess this is one of the cases when you have no scientific evidence to show that you indeed are expecting a baby. AND what is even weirder is that you can carry this baby up to 5 years. 5 YEARS!!!!!

At first I thought maybe this page was created for the April’s fools Day but that is not the case if you have time to research, there are many cases…. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Really! To carry a baby for 5 years. WOW. My heros 🙂 Really!

For me it was probably gas or muscle spasm or some other weird reason, it is gone today!!! I just wanted to share this new discovery with you all.

Have you ever heard of cryptic pregnancy?
