Pseudopregnancy (also known as pseudocyesis) is a rare condition in which a woman believes she is pregnant and often she experiences pregnancy symptoms such as an enlarging abdomen, lack of menses, morning sickness and enlarged breasts. This condition may occur in women who have been longing to be pregnant or in the context of anxiety or depression. Although there isn't an obvious explanation, there are even rarer cases in which a woman with pseudopregnancy has a positive pregnancy test.
