When a girl pretends to be pregnant in order to get her boyfriend to propose or otherwise stay with her, prevent divorce or just to get attention.

2.
The state of pretending to be pregnant when you are, in fact, not pregnant.
Beyonce was pretegnant with Blue Ivy, at which point her surrogate mother was ACTUALLY pregnant.

A good way to get your noncommittal boyfriend to propose is to be pretegnant.
