    Olympic weightlifter gives birth while training

    Elizabeth Poblete, 22, did not know she was pregnant, and called for a doctor when she felt unwell a week ago while hoisting weights in the gym in Sao Paulo, where she lives.

    She then gave birth to a premature baby, who was doing well and whom she named Eric Jose after she got over her shock, according to a report on the news website Globo.com.

    How can a woman go six months of being pregnant and now have any idea. I just don't get that.

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.

    It happens fairly often actually, although more often with teenagers. At 6 months many women do not show yet, and as an elite athlete her periods may have stopped due to her intense training regimen anyway (also common), although ovulation usually continues, so pregnancy is still possible.
