Reminds me of the tales of peasant women who worked in the fields, gave birth, then went back to work. Does this make her son "the son of the regiment"?
《shaking head》Those Fijians, man, I'll tell you what...lived with a few of them for a few months in Iraq. They were tasked with security of the camp where I was at. Good people.
Definitely, Keith! The military equivalent of the old Byzantine porphyrogenetis.
Both Mrs B (who knows) and I find it hard to believe that women don't know they're pregnant. Perhaps more rigorous medical tests before deployment?
How does a female old enough to join the military not know when she is 8.8 months pregnant?
As noted, the gunner in question is ethnic Fijian. Many Fijian women are not skinny minis. Take a women who is well above a size 16 (US), has no morning sickness, why should she think she's preggers.
Wow that is some story! Hope that the baby is fine and healthy is all that you could wish for.
