Phantom Pregnancy?

A Canadian woman said she was expecting quintuplets, but when she and her boyfriend went to the hospital for the babies to be delivered, doctors said the woman wasn’t pregnant at all. Dr. Ashton explains that pseudocyesis, often called phantom pregnancy, happens in about one to six cases in 22,000 births. Women with the condition can gain weight, experience morning sickness and lactate, even though there is not a fetus.
