Not to be confused with ButWeUsedACondom, but it's likely to be a result. Contrast with MySecretPregnancy, where the mother knows, but keeps it a secret from the world at large.

* In many eras, sex education was non-existent or pathetic, and some young women simply ''didn't know'' the details surrounding pregnancy and its cause.

Sometimes the LawOfInverseFertility hits so hard that the woman doesn't even realize she's pregnant, often not until the ScreamingBirth (and sometimes not even then). Cries of "ButICantBePregnant" and "how could I have missed this?" ensue. For whatever reason, when they ''do'' notice before giving birth, it isn't the lack of [[NoPeriodsPeriod periods that tips them off]], but rather the morning sickness and WackyCravings. It seems that heroines just don't keep track of their monthlies. Cue BabiesMakeEverythingBetter!

*There's a grammar joke that goes like this:
-->Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex (OhCrap)
**The joke being that the periods after each "sex" are ''menstrual'' periods.

* Even for young, healthy, well-educated women, pregnancy can end up a surprise. Sometimes implantation of the embryo can cause minor bleeding and the woman can mistake that for her regular period. Read the [[note]]Roughly once a month, a woman's body builds a lining on the uterus to defend against the possibility of pregnancy. Human pregnancies are more invasive than most, a trait shared with other primates, some bats, and the elephant shrew. The shedding of this lining is menstruation (you may have noticed dogs and cats don't menstruate; in fact they and other placental mammals reabsorb the lining. So do human women, just not all of it). The embryo implants in this lining by using enzymes to dissolve a portion of it just a little bit. This can cause some spotting that, except for the amount of material, would be identical to menstruation.[[/note]] for more details. Or possibly the woman, like most women, leads a busy life and doesn't necessarily keep close track of her periods, relying on [[HystericalWoman the warning signs]] to keep from making a mess.

* In ''Literature/DancingOnTheEdge'', it's mentioned that protagonist Miracle's mother wasn't aware she was pregnant for several months since it barely showed until the later months, and since she, as a dancer, she was already very thin and implied to be anorexic she wasn't tipped off by her missed periods.
