Hmm - doesn't say if it is a passenger or a crew member. Whoever it is, hoping mom and daughter are fine.

Since Carnival's policy does not allow woman to cruise who are more than 24 weeks pregnant, either she lied about how far along she was or the baby is very premature and I hope s/he is doing well.

Just saw the previous post and didn't consider that it might be a crew member. I would think, though, that Carnival's policy on pregnant crew members would be the same.

Yep, Iv seen lots of women on here who say they hardly show, enough they can still hide it, so they just dont declare it that they are pregnant. It could be someone who was further along and not showing enough to make them ask her if she was pregnant.

Or early?? I wouldnt think it would be crew, as they wouldnt be working that far along I wouldnt think?

wow to have that happen on your ship.... its still shocking.

Wonder if she had cruise insurance to cover medical evac?
Wonder if it's valid if she lied about her pregnancy?

Wonder if she's one of those women who didn't suspect she was pregnant?

Those pics of the baby - the baby is almost full term. Hair and all.

So either the mom didn't know or she lied.

That baby doesn't look like a preeemie http://cgvi.uscg.mil/media/main.php?g2_itemId=888268

They said they took baby, mom, and her mother off the ship. I would assume it was a passenger.

LOL. Me too. My neice was born three months premature, so we tossed that phrase around quite a bit. "She's gotta finish cooking." She's five now and smarter than her parents.

Sometimes due dates are off, it can be hard to pinpoint sometimes if a woman is unsure of her dates, or if they didn't do an ultrasound. sometimes people fib, I actually personally knew a gal who was unaware she was pregnant until the day she delivers. Ship happens! They are just fortunate the Doctor was in!

The only problem is the christening. Without thinking they broke a champagne bottle on the baby.

That is much more than 24 weeks. I don't know of any doctor that would misjudge 30 something weeks for 24.

But then again, she may not have "known".
