- “The Rabbit Has Died” is a lesser used phrase to denote finding out one is pregnant.
- During a test used in the 1930s, the “Rabbit’s Test,” a rabbit was injected with a potentially pregnant woman’s urine. If the woman was pregnant, the rabbit would begin displaying signs of pregnancy itself.
- This test required killing the rabbits to visualize the ovaries, hence the term “Rabbit Done Died”.
