It's also called hysterical pregnancy, and yes it happens

A woman at work faked her pregnancy up to the point of going out on maternity leave.  Two months later she still hadn't had the baby.  She kept missing her scheduled delivery time, or she would have eaten after midnight so they couldn't do the C-Section etc.  Then it went to she had lost the baby.

Up to that point, she really didn't seem wacko.  During the pregnancy the father was not allowed to touch her, see her naked or anything.

While hysterical pregnancy is a real thing, how in the hell do you know you're having multiples (in this case Quints) if you never went to get prenatal screening (which would have revealed that she was not, in fact, pregnant).  No blood tests, no ultrasounds, nothing.  How do you know HOW many babies you're having if you don't do any of that shiat?

I feel bad for the guy, he was actually looking forward to 5 babies (though I have no idea why).

I especially enjoyed the "guy in the nursery that's sad for some reason" photo in the article.

If it's a real thing she really did lose the baby.

I did read a fascinating blog entry about hysterical pregnancy once. I'm sure the Googles with do something if you look. The woman had a negative preg test so she knew she was negative, but she kept having the symptoms.

Drive her to the hospital, and she walks in the front and out the back and goes to get a sandwich. "Oh, the nurses said I have five babies!"

Dodged a bullet there, Dude! Or 5.

Can phantom pregnancies fool doctors at any stage of the process?  Clearly the woman wasn't flat out lying, but what about doctor's visits and whatnot?  If some woman was carrying my kid (note to my wife: this will probably end up being you) I would feel it my responsibility to make sure she was getting proper care.  I wonder to what degree, if any, the woman here is just plain nuts.

Bizarre, man.

I feel bad for the duped guy.  He met some chick on the internet, and 3 months later she says is pregnant.

Poor guy fell for it, but at least she wasn't really pregnant and now he can get away from her.

See, there is a happy ending to this story.

I can't imagine they'd fool an ultrasound.

I'm unclear, did she deliberately lie about it, or is she as devastated and surprised as the guy is?

Obviously not, but the fact that the body mimics pregnancy suggest hormones, how does this register on a pregnancy test?  I assume negative but I'm curious.

I can't possibly see how anyone could fool a doctor. Every time my wife had an appointment during both her pregnancies they used a doplar to listen to the foetal heart beat. She didn't get a pregnancy test every at every visit, but the docs sure knew the baby was there just by listening.
 
2014-03-20 06:33:40 PM
Judging from the pic in the article it looks like she ate the farking babies

2014-03-20 06:39:29 PM
As weeks passed Bienvenue told Servat she was expecting twins, then triplets, then quadruplets and finally the stunning news that there were five babies in her belly.

Yeah, that really should have tipped him off. It's, "Hey, I'm pregnant!" then after the ultrasound, "Whoa, we're having [quantity]!" You don't just keep accumulating babies the longer you go.

Had a sister-in-law that was pregnant for 16 months before she found out that you cant get pregnant from anal sex

I'm not clear on that either, TFA is pretty badly written. Also, why did this guy feel the need to run to a news agency about this story?

Did he really think that the world needed to know he was duped by a mentally unstable girlfriend?
 
2014-03-20 06:52:01 PM
Alternative to this is 5 babies and a mentally ill wife. I'd say 'bullet dodged'.

It seems that financial support and gifts have been pouring in... I think the guy wanted everyone to know that he had nothing to do with cooking up her story and get the word 'round that he'd be returning the gifts

He should make her return each and every gift in person

Let me get this straight (and all of this is based on the Ottawa Sun's article, mind you):

Guy meets girl last summer. Her due date was supposed to be in mid-March. Therefore, they boinked basically as soon as they met. Then she shocks him with news--"I'm pregnant!"--and not only that, but she's pregnant five times over, complete with morning sickness and swollen belly and tittie-milk. But she doesn't see a physician for prenatal care, doesn't have ultrasounds, but she gathers up donations out the ass--cribs, clothes, the lot.

But he's devastated when she comes up as never having been pregnant? Is he oblivious, or just plain stupid?
 
2014-03-20 07:12:15 PM
There is something worse than having your girlfriend tell you she is pregnant. That is having your ex girlfriend tell you she is pregnant.
I prayed to every God, Goddess, prophet, demon, saint and ancestor I could think of. I just don't know now which one to thank, it was a false positive on a pregnancy test.
 
2014-03-20 07:14:47 PM

Or just really really lonely and wanted a family.

So, maybe he loved her and still loves her. Maybe they're both not exactly whip smart. Maybe he just assumed she was going to the doctor, and she just never contemplated it. Actually she probably was crazy to begin with, and he couldn't see or understand the manifestation. She was pregnant, because she wanted to be pregnant. Her wishful thinking begat the hormones to produce her desire. In her head, she was pregnant, and the crazy details of the twins through to quintuplets all generated by the doctor in her own head. Since this guy probably was hands off about doctor visits etc., he just didn't know any better. Was she lying to him? No more than she was lying to herself. TFA mentioned she was admitted to psych for observation.

So you all advocate he leave the lying/conniving/crazy lady who ate the whole thing. But from his perspective, he loves her. It was a world-wrenching lie for him, but he may come to understand that it was real for her too, and she's just as devastated. Her wishful thinking entails that she would be happy to have him as the father, so it isn't that she didn't love him. She's just got a mental illness. Do you leave the woman you love because she has a mental illness? I dunno. Highly subjective question, for sure, but when your heart gets to a certain point, maybe someone else's medical condition (whether physical or mental) is something you help them through and stand by them, rather than ditching them because it's a pain in the ass to deal with.

If you're so lonely that you think five mewling screaming parasites that constantly poop on themselves and desperately need to suck a tittie for nourishment seems like a good idea, then may I suggest joining the local Manchester United FC fan group/hooligan convention?

In high school I had two chicks within four months of each other claim I got them pregnant. One asked for abortion money, the other was gonna keep it. Neither were actually pregnant, otherwise I prolly be in Canada or Mexico by now.

Judging by the size of this wildebeest, she may have fooled the doctor by eating five burritos whole before each visit.
