It always amazes me too, as babies do move inside your uterus when growing and I can't imagine that you can't feel this! I think some women go into total denial, especially if the baby is unplanned. Most women do not menstruate when pregnant as menstruation is caused by shredding of the uterus lining ( which can't happen when you are pregnant) They may have other bleeds (from cervix infection for instance ) but this won't be regular and monthly. In overweight women the growth of the uterus may be less obvious ( how the doctor diagnosed this as an appendix also sounds a bit incredible unless he did not even examine her properly!)
