Today in my teenage angst, I was overwhelmed by a certain phenomenon that has been pleasantly put on television for our entertainment. There are some phenomenons - social or otherwise - that absolutely astound me. Amelia Earhart, for example, is just baffling. How - I repeat HOW did she just disappear!?
This morning, I turned on the television expecting to watch my daily CSI episode on SPIKE TV. For some reason they decided to strip me of this wonderful daily ritual by showing a Gangland marathon. I don't know what demographic they were aiming for with that. So instead I turned to TLC. Here I found something shocking.
There is a show, maybe you already know about this, called "I didn't know I was pregnant." This show does reenactments of the days leading up to a the birth of an unexpected child. The reenactments are something to behold but that's not what I'm amazed by. These women have none of the regular symptoms of pregnancy. No weight gain, no morning sickness, no cravings . . . nothing. By the time these babies are born they are generally underdeveloped; and how could they not be? But for the most part, these babies end up being healthy, happy, fully developed little humans. All of the moms say that this baby is an absolute gift, no matter how unexpected. Which is amazing and wonderful. I think this is a feat of the human body but mostly I just don't get it.
Anybody able to explain this phenomenon of the body?
