Umm... her reasoning is a little flawed...
Faking pregnancies is not a new phenomenon. Women have faked pregnancies all through history, but reasons we may not understand and definitely shouldn’t judge. Heck, in the Middle Ages, pregnancy was seen as a woman’s primary role and without the medical knowledge we have now, it’s easy to see how any woman might feel pressured to fake a pregnancy.
There is an even a medical condition that can cause a woman to think that she is pregnant even when she’s not. It’s actually really interesting because in some cases, believing she is pregnant so intensely can literally make the body produce physical symptoms of pregnancy, including fatigue, breast soreness and even a growing belly.
Morale of the story? You never know why a woman might say she is pregnant even when she’s not. Which is especially true in the case of this young 17-year-old high school student who recently revealed that she faked a pregnancy for over six months straight.
She’s not the first person to ever to fake a pregnancy, but this is quite an interesting reason.
