I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant is one of many TLC reality series and one of the best reality dramas. The documentary-style show follows the true stories of women who didn't know they were pregnant. The women featured on the show are all different shapes, sizes, ages, and from all different walks of life. There's no recipe for determining which women might fall victim to becoming pregnant without ever knowing it. The dangers and complications that can arise from unexpected pregnancies are extreme, and can sometimes even be deadly.

Most I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant episodes usually involve a woman who definitely does not appear to be pregnant. She usually gives birth under bizarre circumstances. Some of the women featured on the show were told by medical professionals that their chances of ever conceiving were so low, that the possibility wasn't even on their radar. Some suffered multiple miscarriages before finally conceiving and carrying nearly to term without even knowing it.

Whatever the reason, finding out you're having a baby while in labor is sure to be a pretty crazy experience. If you're interested in true stories of women who didn't know they were pregnant, or just want to read about some crazy birthing stories, then check out this list and vote up the craziest I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant episodes.

The Episode:

25-year-old Meredith and her boyfriend of six years were excited to find out she was pregnant. After being diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease, Meredith thought she might not ever be able to conceive. Unfortunately, about two months into her pregnancy, she began to have unusual spotting. She rushed to the hospital, where she was told she had miscarried the baby. After losing the baby, Meredith became depressed and started drinking, smoking, and eating poorly. Seven months after being told she had a miscarriage, Meredith started experiencing back pains that escalated into full blown labor. She gives birth on her bedroom floor to the baby she spent seven months mourning.

What Makes It So Crazy:

Not only did Meredith know she was pregnant initially, but she was even told she lost the baby by a doctor. So, she continued her normal life (assuming she was no longer pregnant), only to give birth seven months later on the floor of her bedroom. The craziest part of the whole thing is that the baby was born still encased in the amniotic sac. So, not only were the parents faced with an unknown labor and delivery, they also had a home birth under rare medical circumstances.

Craziest Quotes:

"What she thought was a kidney stone, was actually a baby, still encased in the amniotic sac."

"I didn't think it was alive. It was still in the sac, it wasn't moving."

The Episode:

24-year-old Jasmine didn't think there was any way she could be pregnant. After a birth control failure one night, she took the morning after pill, and didn't think about the experience much after. She had no side-effects, but starts missing her period. She sees a doctor who advises her that she was probably missing periods due to her obesity. Months later, she experiences abdominal pains so severe she is forced to call for an ambulance. She is taken to the hospital where she undergoes an emergency C-section due to the baby coming out feet first. While attending to the baby, the doctor looks over to see another tiny arm protruding from Jasmine's uterus. She was actually pregnant with twins, despite having taken the morning after pill.

What Makes It So Crazy:

Jasmine took the morning after pill in order to prevent pregnancy from a short-lived relationship. The pill didn't work and Jasmine got pregnant anyway, carrying not one but two babies, without ever knowing she was pregnant. She discovers she's pregnant when an emergency room doctor sees two small feet and 10 toes protruding from between Jasmine's legs. And the doctor doesn't realize it's twins until the second baby basically waves from the uterus.

Craziest Quotes:

"What I saw was an arm sticking out of the uterus."

"There's more than one?!"

The Episode:

In July of 2007, a dangerous tornado tore through the Midwest. 20-year-old Kayla was experiencing a storm of her own, as she found herself suddenly stricken with cramping so severe she could barely stand it. Her friend rushed her to a local clinic to discover that Kayla is not only pregnant, but already in labor. Because of the high risk nature of Kayla's delivery, she must be transferred to the nearest hospital equipped for her case, two hours away. 

What Makes It So Crazy:

After finding out she's pregnant and in labor, Kayla is whisked into an ambulance to be transferred to the nearest hospital two hours away. The ambulance has to battle 60 mile-an-hour winds, torrential rain, and a full-fledged tornado warning. Kayla gives birth in the ambulance with EMTs who had never delivered a baby before, just before arriving at the hospital.

Craziest Quotes:

"There was so much water underneath the tires that the ambulance was sliding around in the water."

"The tornado had just passed through one of the towns we drove through."
