Remember the brouhaha over the story of a woman who didn't know she was pregnant? Well this is sort of like the exact opposite: doctors performed a C-section to find that the woman wasn't pregnant at all!
The woman reportedly appeared at the hospital with her husband asking for a C-section. A resident in charge made the pregnancy diagnosis and doctors agreed to surgery after trying to induce labor for two days. [...]
When they saw an empty uterus, they "closed her back up," Geszler told ABC News.
The medical condition is pseudocyesis (false or hysterical pregnancy) And yes, the woman can physically look pregnant, complete with extended abdomen and all.
I wonder how her husband felt.
