* An episode of ''Series/{{FX}}'' had criminals try robbing a gold depository, and threaten to shoot a pregnant woman.

They eventually discover that she wasn't pregnant using thermal imaging, but only after the newsreporter said it wasn't necessary and could be told by how she was walking.
* On ''Series/DesperateHousewives,'' Bree uses a fake belly to convince her friends she's pregnant rather than admit that it's really her teenage daughter who's pregnant. She even passes the child off as her own for a bit but when Edie finds out and tries to blackmail her, Bree confesses the truth to her friends, who forgive her.

* Also true for some baby thieves; unable to have children of their own, they fake pregnancies and then kidnap a baby at about the right time, fooling people around them into thinking the new child is actually theirs. There have been a few cases where it gets much worse, and women have [[{{Squick}} murdered and cut open actual pregnant women to steal their unborn children.]]
