Hello Baby!

A woman with stomach pains finds out that she's 9 months pregnant. How does this happen, exactly? It happens. To me, there must be some sort of psychological disconnect. Does the woman so badly not want another child that she doesn't see the signs? Does she fear losing her relationship so ignores the act?

We see in the headlines women who give birth and leave the baby in the bathroom or throw it away. I've always wondered how the women manage to do this all by themselves--these women endure the pain that most modern women faint at just thinking about. This just tells me that the mind is indeed very powerful and can control many of the processes that seem autonomic.
