An Oregon man who claims he is pregnant sparked skepticism from those who live around him.
In a first-person article for April's Advocate magazine, Thomas Beatie says he is five months pregnant.
In the article, Beatie says he used to be a woman. He says he had breast reduction surgery and took hormones to become a man, but he says he kept his female reproductive organs.
Now Beatie claims he is expecting a little girl.
Neighbors of Beatie and his wife, Nancy, say they haven't noticed any baby bump. They did notice a television crew following them around, but they haven't seen him for days.
People who work next door to Beatie's t-shirt shop greeted the news with laughter.
Beatie told a Portland, Oregon television station that he was unable to comment on his situation for a week and a half.
The Advocate, based in Los Angeles, California, is a magazine focusing on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues.
As a foot note, there has been no confirmation that Beatie is pregnant and next week is April 1st.
