Sup Travellers?! Katherine Kropas, 23, experienced the miracle of childbirth the other day but only an hour after finding out that she was pregnant. In other words, she was pregnant for nine months and didn't once notice that she was getting morning sickness or missing her periods.

It's really hard to believe that a woman can be pregnant for nine months without knowing but according to ABC News, Kropas had no idea.

Kropas, 23, started her day off Tuesday with intense back pain, but at first, doctors couldn't find anything wrong with her. Then, they did an ultrasound.

"They took one look, and they rushed me off into labor," she told ABC's Boston station WCVB. "I found out that I was having a baby at 10:15. She was born at 11:06 p.m."

She gave birth to a baby girl, Ellie, who weighed 10 pounds and 2 ounces. Kropas told WCVB she felt that she'd put on some weight, but figured maybe it was just typical holiday weight gain.

Dr. Jennifer Ashton, a senior medical contributor for ABC News and practicing OB/GYN, said she's seen cases like Kropas's in her career.

"It tends to happen in women who are overweight or obese to start, may have irregular periods and are less aware of their bodies," Ashton said. "For most women who have been pregnant, they are aware of multiple physical signs and symptoms, and those signs and symptoms are not subtle."

Okay, I get that Kropas just thought that she'd put on some Christmas weight but a pregnancy doesn't only come with a big belly. I've never been pregnant before because --- you know --- I'm a guy and whatnot but I do know that a baby doesn't just subtly appear in your body. They tend to make their presence known. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
