Chrissy Metz Shared Body-Positive Tweets During Last Night’s Episode Of 'This Is Us’

  Chrissy Metz Shared Body-Positive Tweets During Last Night’s Episode Of 'This Is Us’ "Your weight does not define you!"On last night's (always) emotional This Is Us, Chrissy Metz's character dealt with an awkward moment viewers related to: not being able to fit into a booth at a restaurant. During a scene in which Kate joined Toby for a client meeting, a waitress brought the group over to a booth. Toby, trying to minimize Kate's discomfort, asked the waitress if they could be sat at a different table because this one had a draft. When she told him the other tables were reserved, Kate spoke up, saying she couldn't fit into the booth and joking that she should come with a warning for creating uncomfortable moments.

What does a ‘ stealth ’ or ‘cryptic’ pregnancy mean? It means a pregnancy a woman is unaware of. The TV show “I Didn’t Know I was Pregnant ” features women who didn’t realize they were expecting until they delivered an eight-pound baby in the loo. Surprise ! How is that possible?

A cryptic pregnancy occurs when a pregnant person doesn't realize they are pregnant until they are several months in. Cryptic pregnancies aren’t common, but they’re not unheard of, either. Television shows like MTV’s “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant ” showcase extreme examples of this condition.

Detroit woman Dawn Dodge was in for a surprise during her shift at Leo's Coney Island restaurant on Saturday. Fox 2 reported that she went into the bathroom with cramps and came out with a newborn baby, whom she named Collin.

Dodge had been suffering from cramps for months, but believed she was incapable of getting pregnant because she was in pre-menopause. However, just to make sure, she had taken a pair of pregnancy tests in September, both of which came out negative, she told the outlet.

She was concerned that the swelling and cramps she was feeling were symptoms of a tumor in her abdominal area. Before her shift started at the restaurant, she went to the lavatory to freshen up. Once in there, her cramps began to worsen. She thought that the growth was being purged from her body.

"I put my hand down there and I thought a tumor was coming out, but it wasn't a tumor—it was a little boy," she told the station.

"I was looking at this little guy and I was scared."

Dodge called out to her co-workers when she realized what had happened, and they quickly called 911. Emergency response showed up and took both mother and child to the hospital.

The baby weighed in at 5 pounds, 11 ounces.

Dodge is the sole breadwinner in her household. She also cares for her sick mother. Her cousin has set up a GoFundMe to raise money to help her out.

According to the Washington Post, one study indicated that approximately one in every 2,500 women go into labor without realizing that they are pregnant, in a syndrome called "stealth" or "cryptic" pregnancy.

Cryptic pregnancies are more commonly found in women who are unusually tall or unusually heavy, as the expansion of the uterus to house the developing fetus is easier to miss.

Um, So...What Does It Mean to Dream About Being Pregnant? .
If you're trying to get pregnant, that's one thing, but what if you're nowhere close to that phase of your life? Allow me to explain. First of all, relax. Dreaming that you're pregnant doesn't mean you are actually pregnant. The pregnancy dream is actually pretty common. As Deirdre Barrett, PhD, a psychologist and author of The Committee of Sleep, told Women's Health, “Pregnancy can be a metaphor for other kinds of creativity." So dreaming that you're going to have a baby often means that you're growing.
