    Cryptic Pregnancy

    A cryptic pregnancy or delayed pregnancy is a lack of subjective awareness of pregnancy until the end of gestation in pregnant women. This condition has an incidence of 1:475. Causes are not clear.

    The following subset of questions regarding symptoms can help determine "whether a person is pregnant or not?" Of which would be confirmed with a pregnancy test.

    • Are these symptoms (e.g. nausea, abdominal pain, etc.) ovulation symptoms or symptoms of pregnancy?
    • Visible weight gain is generally noticed around the second trimester, so if the question of pregnancy is derived from weight gain determine if there has been any changes in eating habits or have you missed your last few period

    Some people believe cryptic pregnancy is a pregnancy where urine and blood tests are negative because of low hCG and that even ultrasounds don't show the fetus because it grows much more slowly. There is no medical literature to support their case. Consequences associated with cryptic pregnancy include antepartum deaths, intrapartum deaths, and neonatal deaths. The most common main cause of death was infection, neonatal and placental. Some people believe that cryptic pregnancy can often lead to poor outcome and deaths due to postpartum emotional disturbance, preterm births, small for gestational age babies. Cryptic pregnancy could possibly contribute to increased incidence of fetal abuse, child neglect or even neonaticide.

    "Gaining Weight Without Realizing You’re Pregnant

    Carrying a fetus all the way or nearly all the way to term without realizing it is more common in women who are overweight or obese; the more weight you’re carrying to begin with, the more easily you can fail to notice if you gain a few more pounds. Of course the protruding, rounded appearance of a pregnant woman’s belly looks very different from the ordinary sort of weight gain normally attributed to poor eating and exercise habits, but while most women’s bodies acquire this shape during pregnancy, some do not.
    It also bears repeating that women who are overweight often experience menstrual irregularities. This is because fat stored in the buttocks and abdomen manufactures a chemical called androstenedione, which is then transformed into estrogen, throwing hormones out of balance."

    In this age of self-destructive insanity where people are so out of touch with their own bodies they allow themselves to become so obese they find the simple act of ambulation difficult, it doesn't surprise me that cases of so-called "cryptic pregnancies" are increasing in numbers.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
