I watched a show of stories about women who had these "surprise" pregnancies. There are a few, consistent factors:

    1. No, the number one, most consistent factor was not obesity, as I'm sure you'd expect. Invariably, they were all diagnosed as being unable to get pregnant due to an issue that also caused them to have irregular (or no) menstrual cycles, which meant that not having a period was par for the course.
    2. Many of them were obese. :-D
    3. The ones who weren't obese had minimal weight gain, and often didn't even develop a true baby bump.
    4. Number 3 largely coincided with women who smoked and/or drank a lot.
Put all of that together, and you create circumstances where women can quite definitely not realize they're pregnant until the very end.

And not one of these women felt a five pound object routinely kicking them in the ribs?

I'm not buying it.

You can't be drunk or high 24 hours a day for 9 month's. It's impossible. That baby is there 24/7. Sooner or later you are going to feel something.

Queens rape victim was falsely imprisoned for robberies; now she sues city cops for falling for her attacker's story

A Queens rape victim who was locked up for robberies she didn’t commit is suing city and Long Island cops for falling for her attacker’s “preposterous hoax” of a revenge plot.

In a federal lawsuit, Seemona Sumasar claims NYPD cops protected her attacker, Jerry Ramrattan, because he was secretly funneling them information about other crimes while working as an informant.

Ramrattan relied on cop connections two years before the Sumasar attack to help him get another rape victim to drop charges against him, the suit claims.

Two weeks ago, a Queens jury found Ramrattan, 39, guilty of raping Sumasar, a former Wall Street analyst, in her Far Rockaway apartment in 2009. The jury also convicted Ramrattan of perjury and conspiracy for concocting the twisted tale that landed Sumasar — a single mom — in a Long Island lockup for seven months.

Cops had said Sumasar, 36, was impersonating a cop when she carried out three gunpoint robberies on the streets of Queens and Long Island.

They were forced to set her free in December 2010 when they discovered the robberies were an elaborate fiction. They grew out of tales spun by Ramrattan — a private eye and cop buff — who talked a ragtag group of criminal friends into helping him carry out his devious plot.

“The scheme was poorly conceived and bumblingly executed,” Sumasar’s lawyer, Nick Brustin, said in a lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Federal Court. “Authorities should have exposed it as a preposterous hoax.”

A spokeswoman for the city declined to comment.

The lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount in damages for Sumasar’s false arrest and malicious prosecution as well as compensation for the emotional damage done to her 12-year-old daughter.

Also named as defendants are the Nassau County Police Department.

The lawsuit claims Sumasar had “rock-solid” alibis for at least two of the alleged robberies. For one, she was home with her daughter in Queens. During the other, she was at a Connecticut casino.

Sumasar tried to persuade cops that Ramrattan was behind her arrest.

“Despite their knowledge of Ramrattan and his history, police ignored the evidence in front of them and steadfastly refused to investigate Ms. Sumasar’s readily verifiable protestions of innocence, including her rock-solid alibi,” the lawsuit says.

While she was being held in a Nassau County jail, Sumasar lost her restaurant business and her home went into foreclosure.

Man Dies From 20-Year-Old Shooting

Baltimore police have a new unsolved slaying on their hands, even though the victim was shot nearly 20 years ago.

In August 1992, then-16-year-old Ronald Watkins was shot while standing in a crowd of people at North Avenue and North Charles Street.

While he survived the shooting, medical examiners said his aorta slowly deteriorated, leading to his death from internal bleeding in July of this year.

Because his death was caused by injuries from the shooting, it's classified as a homicide, police said.
