* Speaking of [[SoapOpera soaps]], they often do this if they want a child's birth to occur during a sweeps period or special occasion (Christmas, etc). Ex. ''Series/OneLifeToLive'''s Luna gave birth in May, despite announcing her pregnancy the previous December, meaning she was either already 3 months pregnant when she made the announcement, or that she gave birth prematurely.

She and her husband were estranged most of that year and even if she'd conceived the night they reconciled, she still couldn't have been more than two months along [[/note]], or that she gave birth prematurely.

* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has this happen with [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Bra/Bulla]], who is magically delivered by [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Whis]] in order to ensure that her father, Vegeta, who wanted to be present for her birth, could participate in an [[DeadlyGame extremely important tournament]]. The anime plays it relatively tastefully, with Bulma lying in a room and the baby being carefully delivered. In the manga (as pictured above) it's played as a gag, with the baby abruptly popping out while everyone else is eating. Bulma [[WeirdnessCensor isn't really bothered in either version]], although given her status as the universe's single biggest WeirdnessMagnet, it's not too surprising.

* It is natural for alien hybrids in ''Film/{{Species}}'' to mature inhumanly fast. In the second film, they do it so quickly, they quite literally go out with a bang.

* Combined with MisterSeahorse in the ''RoundTheTwist'' episode "The Big Burp". Pete becomes pregnant by holding hands with a dryad after peeing on her tree. After an accelerated pregnancy, he gives birth through his mouth while [[ChainedHeat handcuffed to his worst enemy]].

* Played with in ''Manga/KouchaOuji'', there was a pregnancy that lasted not even a month. It's because the whole thing happened in the Tea World where time flows about 10 times slower compared to the human world while the mother was a human so her body's own time was still bounded to its true course. So technically while the pregnancy was extremely fast to the Tea World and its natives, the pregnancy itself actually processed on normal speed from a human's perspective.

* In ''[[Literature/DreamPark The California Voodoo Game]]'', a loa-spirit in the tournament adventure impregnates [[spoiler: Mary-Martha]] and its offspring grows to full term over the course of a few dozen hours. Subverted in that the semi-divine fetus changes its mind at the last minute and decides to stay put, inverting this trope into the LongestPregnancyEver (possibly permanent).

* Elizabeth in ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' is supposedly the miracle child of Columbia's prophet Zachary Hale Comstock, and is said to have only spent seven days in Lady Comstock's womb. [[spoiler:What actually happened was that the sterile Comstock kidnapped his own AlternateSelf's daughter from another timeline.]]

* The DS-only sequel to ''{{Okami}}'', ''Okamiden'', stars Chibiterasu, Ammy's son, and Susano and Kushi's son. Not so remarkable? The second game takes place ''nine months'' after the end of the first.
