Oh, now, lots of people will deny their pregnancy for a while until they're farther along. You can't fault them for that, or at least I can't.
I'm glad you said something about Phaedra's theatrics though. I've never had a baby and didn't want to sound ignorant, but aren't you pretty much numb? Her reaction to her son was horrifying. First "oh, gross" and then "he looks Asian" well how lovely.
