55. We have no idea what was going through this girl's mind.
As some one else noted, how could someone be that pregnant and no one notice; let alone someone going through a first time labor?

As for the comments above about abortion and parental notification, how does anyone here know that the girl ever admitted to herself that she was pregnant?
