However, Zona says that when she goes to doctors and they perform tests, they always tell her she’s not pregnant.
Zona claims she has what is known as a cryptic pregnancy. “Cryptic pregnancy is a pregnancy that you do not show the HCG levels. Either at or around 20 weeks, it may show up, or through the whole entire pregnancy,” she tells Dr. Phil on Tuesday’s episode
. “Now with the cryptic pregnancy, your HCG levels are so low that the babies don’t even get bones until they’re 2-to-3 years old in the womb.”WATCH: Young Woman Says Mom Claims She’s Been Pregnant For Almost Four Years
