Doubts seem to linger that Bristol Palin was really pregnant in the fall of 2008. Palin Deception of which I was a regular reader and still use for reference did a very detailed post on this subject.
I must admit when I first heard the news that Bristol was pregnant, I thought no way. Much too convenient that she is 5 months pregnant thus proving she couldn’t have given birth on April 18, 2008. I kept expecting the announcement of a miscarriage but it never came.
The birth was announced in a strange way, though. The news came from a relative in another state who reportedly received word via an e-mail. Different dates for the birth were reported. Then there was the prolonged absence of any photographic evidence that the baby had actually been born when stated. Tripp Johnston wasn’t seen publicly until the February 18, 2009 interview with Greta Van Susteren.
So what do I think all this means? Bristol faked the pregnancy? No.
I do believe Bristol was indeed pregnant, just not 5 months pregnant, in September 2008.
Think about it. Rumors were swirling that Bristol was Trig’s mother, not Sarah. What better way to dispel that notion than to announce that Bristol was 5 months pregnant? Just pregnant enough that she couldn’t have given birth on April 18, 2008.
There has been a lot of speculation about these pictures from September 3, 2008.
There is obvious padding of the chest region. Some think that Bristol was lactating and the pads were to prevent leakage. My thoughts are that the padding was to make her appear more pregnant than she was at that time. After all the talk about how Sarah didn’t appear pregnant earlier in the year, they wanted to emphasize Bristol’s condition.
So where is all this leading?
My thoughts are that Bristol gave birth to the first baby known as Trig probably in late February which corresponds with the missing pages of Sarah’s travel schedule. The first few days were touch and go plus Sarah was waiting to see if McCain got the nod before announcing her pregnancy. When McCain sealed the nomination the fake pregnancy was a go and the rest is history.
Bristol decided that she would try to get pregnant again after her ruffled ear baby was replaced. In Going Rogue, Sarah says that Bristol was a little mother. That she was always wanting to babysit, very nurturing and that she wanted Sarah to rent her a baby for her 8th birthday. Bristol was probably heartbroken when her first born was taken from her. I would bet that Bristol had planned to name that first baby Tripp but Sarah had a different name in mind.
She probably became pregnant again in late May. Although, I firmly believe that the ruffled ear baby was born much earlier than April 18, 2008, even if that birth date is correct, Bristol could still have gotten pregnant again in late May. Click here to visit a page where women are discussing how soon they got pregnant after giving birth. If she did get pregnant in late May, she would have been 3 months pregnant when it was announced on September 1, 2008.

Halle’s dress is loose but you can see her baby bump. The dress Bristol was wearing in the pictures above was plainly too tight. I think it was deliberately chosen to make Bristol look bigger than she really was.
Tripp could have born at the end of January 2009 or prematurely in late December 2008. Here is a link to some risk factors for preterm labor and birth.A previous pre-term delivery which I believe Bristol had is listed.
If Tripp was born prematurely that could explain why he wasn’t seen until February. A premature infant would not have helped quash the rumors that Bristol was the real mother of Trig. It would only have added fuel to the fire.
