Added DiffLines:

* ''Comicbook/{{Concrete}}'': neither Concrete nor Maureen, the biologist who studies him, even suspect he's pregnant until [[ChestBurster his back cracks open and there's a smaller him inside]], despite him getting symptoms similar to humans like morning sickness and being even moodier than he normally is. Justified because not only is Concrete's body alien, but the baby was a result of asexual reproduction (though said reproduction was triggered by human sexual thoughts), Concrete's body is still in many ways a mystery, and everyone thinks of Concrete as being male as he was once a man.

* This trope was played tragically straight in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', where Guts and a now insane Casca only discovered that she was in her beginning stages of pregnancy after she miscarried their child under the severe trauma that she sustained from the Eclipse [[note]]A few fans believe that Casca might have known she was pregnant before she went insane and either never got the chance to tell Guts or [[MySecretPregnancy didn't want to tell him]] out of consideration that he would stay with the Hawks out of duty instead of pursuing his dream[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

* Minor example in the DistantFinale of "Fanfic/BrotherOnBrotherDaughterOnMother". Eleya mentions in her InternalMonologue that she only discovered she was pregnant with her and Gaarra's fourth after he had left for a five-year mission. She's forty at this point so they may not have thought she could get pregnant again.

* A teen magazine once had a real life story about an 18-year-old girl who hadn't gotten her periods yet. She'd had a boyfriend and hadn't used protection while sleeping with him because she didn't know that ovulation happens before the actual period comes. One day, ages after she and the boyfriend had drifted apart, she got some pretty strong stomach pains on and off. Thinking it was her first period, she just stayed on the toilet and ended up delivering a baby boy into it. The baby was okay, but her mother had to take care of him for a few weeks before the girl snapped out of her denial and started taking care of him herself.

She'd had a boyfriend and hadn't used protection fairly regular basis.

* In ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Peter looks up one of his old girlfriends, who's turned ugly and obese in the intervening years. [[BlackComedy Then a baby splatters out from between her legs]], much to their mutual surprise. Though she then calls to her husband/boyfriend/lover/something offscreen "I ''was'' pregnant!" Implying that she did suspect, or was at least open to the possibility.

* Used in ''EggBelly'', when Setsuna gets pregnant by a girl. [[spoiler: (Apparently, Pactio sex can give even same-sex couples a child.)]] The scene where the doctor tells her this is hilarious.

* When they're near menopause, women's periods can become erratic, making them more difficult to track. Couple this with the fact that menopause takes time and doesn't occur at the same age for every woman, and older women can have an unplanned child whose college years will coincide with their own retirement. Similarly, some younger women can have health issues that make fertility unlikely or erratic.

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': Due to her mess of insecurities, Asuka flipped out when she discovered she was pregnant and had tried to hide it from Shinji (She even went as far as to ''starve herself'' in a misguided attempt to induce a miscarriage). He only found out after a rat got into their trash and he stumbled onto a positive pregnancy test Asuka tried to hide. To say he was surprised would have been an understatement.
** Incidentally, Asuka avoids the usual markings of trope, as what tipped her off to her condition was missing one of her periods.

* In the late 1990s, a woman made the Seattle news after she went to the hospital with terrible stomach pains and delivered a healthy 6-pound baby girl. As her periods had always been light and irregular, and she continued to spot throughout the pregnancy and had no baby bump at all, she had no idea she was pregnant until she gave birth.
