To be pregnant or Not to Be Pregnant
We may never know what goes on in our bodies sometimes~~;~~ one minute we feel good about ourselves only for nature to come around and knock us out coldly without a blurting sirens sound effect accompanying its entrance.
False pregnancies, also known as pseudocyesis or phatom pregnancies, happen when there is an illusionary belief by people (not necessarily females) who strongly wants/feels in themselves an idea/presence/illusion/vision/image/concept/shape/form/fictional characterization deemed alive(a foetus) within them whiles actually though they would want it so much it isn't still true yet. Yes! You read right- phantom pregnancies can occur in anybody - two-spirited individuals inclusive!
The Symptoms & Tell-Tales
It’s no hilarious newsflash that almost every symptom seen during actual human-bearing functions imitates phantom ones too thereby making misdiagnosis prevalent among health care providers who lack expertise diagnosing the condition /patients themselves suggesting their possibility of a pregnancy. But to narrow down the symptoms we are looking for, there is no one size fits all rules or regulations as such but here are some of the features to look out for:
I know what you're thinking, "who wouldn't be breathing heavy if they felt like there's an extra life inside them?" Relax; It happens even when it's all in your head - well technically speaking.
When having pseudocyesis, patients might notice their breath changing (getting heavier/thicker) during short courses walk particularly upstairs and can get tender/nipple discharge ++ due to prolactin release.
Another way indecisive breathing could come into play with "pregnancy" is that others might monitor theirs closely meanwhile not exactly experiencing real foetal height.
Now this has got to be primary tell-tale indicating phantom pregnancies- abdominal expansion! If someone else confirms that your waistline getting larger compared tp previous measurement /periods then its either items consumed therein body(babies gat nothing do with those gain/ bloating matters huh?!), false pregnancy or obesity maybe?
Random people have been believed to fake pregnancy just on account of attention and being mother-martyred awarding themselves each time was informed how cute “their bump” looked without knowing fully health implications surrounding phantom births.
Recollect! Even if carrying several multiples while reading these few lines would not causing bloat/tummy issue so keep calm and focused on other possible clues herein this article Get checked by medical staff whenever necessary &possible
In case you didn't catch it before now- hormones change period(ly). The rise/growth/disappearance/fluctuation/fall/increase/depletion either too fast/too slow/mostly inexplicably giving a hint ????of illness –only for it to be a symptom of psychological distress associated with phantom pregnancy.
When affected, anxiety levels shoot and sometimes trigger depressive episodes- routine check ups might reveal the imminent diagnosis. hormonal changes in persons experiencing pseudocyesis resemble those of normal pregnancies( although not using same time scale /scale/ intensity) as it span from HCG release up linearly
If you can feel them, see them or worse still having dreams depicting little kicks by sticking out legs abruptly when dozing off at your work desk- sorry to say but chances are slim that these movements happening within your head... Nevertheless symptoms like this which are obvious signs should encourage testing???? even if misleading feelings keep preventing one’s judgement ????##
Phantom Labour Pains
It's ironic that during actual labour there could be up to 36 hours of non-stop excruciating pain ????and yet some people pretend they experience phantom pains just because they assume it is an indicator for what is most likely not physically occuring inside their body!
False pregnancy cases may come along with classical cramping/pain/discomforts similar to active labour processes as tummy grows - this too while confusing health experts who cant ascertain but provide wrong diagnoses including real emergency ones due how authentic workers wrongly declare onset labour process uninvolved????
Phantom/schrodinger-like characteristics asymptomatic after proper check-up diagnosed would help rule nursing mother among numerous risks posed mental illiteracy, misdiagnosis/over-diagnosis alleviated. Speak up whenever necessary whenever hints pointing towards this condition arise (including behavioural issues) ask friends professional counsellors pastoralists clinical psychologists psychiatric nurses etc for confidential support -avoid stigmatization. Don’t let obstinate neighbours/community play down legitimate concerns – It occurs frequently much more than we think now allow stigma inhibit us our opinions! Above all- Don't forget to #stayHappy#livelong while navigating through all of this phantom pregnancy shenanigans.
