On Saturday, a sailor on board the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower visited the aircraft carriers medical department, complaining of stomach pains.
The ships doctors would soon discover why: The sailor was pregnant.
Hours later, she gave birth to a 7-pound baby girl....
...Urban would not say whether there are standard repercussions for a servicewoman failing to self-report a pregnancy....
Infant diapers, baby formula and an incubator were flown out to the carrier on the day of delivery,

I’m not going to say I told them so, but I told them so.
This must have been one fat active duty sailor that nobody could notice she was pregnant.
Women on boats. What could go wrong?
Did she weigh 300 lbs.?
It’s not like she was on the ground in combat. She was at sea. Not to belittle the Navy’s contribution but to say she was “fighting ISIS” is a bit of a stretch.
Awww, isn’t that just the sweetest thing
Like Matt Lauer admonished Trump about. Nothing will happen when you put women in the military in the same area as male servicemen.
Infant diapers, baby formula and an incubator were flown out
Welcome to your new Navy and newest fighting vessel—the USS Love Boat.
Shouldn’t all females in the military be required to have birth control implants? Otherwise, this risks the lives of others as they operate at lower efficiency while pregnant, disturbs morale and gives them a way out of duty.
When are they going to thrown an on-board baby shower for her?
“fighting ISIS”? That’s a bit over the top.
How fat does a woman have to be to successfully hide a pregnancy? And wouldn’t that DQ her from service?
P.S. Just how fat are sailors allowed to get these days?
YES! Next question
While 90+% of pregnancies are obvious and known, there is that small portion that are a real surprise! The cable channel, TLC, has a long-running series, “I didn’t know I was pregnant” and using that as a search term in Bing gives a lot of hits!
So, without further facts, this might be one of those cases. BUT, is this not a strike against such coed crews in other places, like subs? The whole idea behind the SSBN concept is unseen and unheard. Surfacing for a baby’s cry kind of breaks that security1
T’was an immaculate conception.
They want a way out of duty but equal pay. The man has to carry the sack but they want equal pay. They want a promotion purely for “diversities” sake and the paycheck as if it was earned the same way men get it
