How do you know that you are pregnant?

How do you know that you are pregnant?Some say that every woman knows when she’s pregnant because of a certain sixth sense she posses. But if you’re not so lucky to be aware when you are pregnant and an assumption is all you have, “listen” to the signs that your body gives you even before having a pregnancy test or going to the gynecologist. Which are these signs?

The first one is well known by each of us: the delay of menstruation. Many of us believe that if the menstruation still exists we are surely not pregnant. This idea is often incorrect. It is very possible the menstruation to exist for two-three months in little quantities than usually and the pregnancy to have already appeared.

Buy a pregnancy test

One of the clearest signs that you are pregnant is a visible change of your breasts; they become even bigger than they were before the period of menstruation and they ache. Most women confuse this ache of the breasts with the one they have before menstruation comes. In order to avoid this kind of confusion you should know very well your body.

The urination is frequent at the beginning (in the first four months of pregnancy) and this represents another important sign that you are pregnant.

Even if you aren’t that kind of person who eats all the time this doesn’t mean that an unjustified hunger and an emphasized appetite can’t represent a pregnancy sign. Remember! Don’t rely on this fact as the continuous hunger can appear because of stress too. The moment this symptom is accompanied by others you should start wondering “Am I pregnant?”

Another frequent sign of pregnancy is a constant, unjustified estate of fatigue. This fatigue appears because of the quantity of progesterone hormone present in a high level into your body.

A certain sensation of flatulence can also represent a cause of worry for those of you who aren’t prepared to have a baby. This symptom isn’t present only when it comes to a pregnancy as a certain digestive problem can also be the cause.

The nausea and frequent pukes are frequent in the morning although this doesn’t mean that they can’t appear during the day too.

If you observe that weird smells such as the one of gasoline or blacking begin to attract you, this is an unfailing sign of pregnancy. Most pregnant women also admit that they can’t stand the smell of coffee or tea.

Beside of having a darker color than usually, teats begin to be very mellow and sensitive at any touch. The sensation is similar to the one you have before the menstruation appears.

Your body temperature has been higher than usually for more than 18 days? That’s an unfailing pregnancy sign. This temperature chance is due to the presence of the hCG hormone in your body.

If these signs are present in your case too you should go immediately to a drug store and buy a pregnancy test. It’s the easiest method to find out whether you’re pregnant or not.

    We’ve heard people who take the pill with no problems can still become pregnant (about 10%)
    My tummys keeps getting little pains like period pains but they have only started today (a week after with no actual blood coming out just the pain)
    What does this meen?
    Has it got anything to do with being pregnant?

  14. Hi.This month my cycle came nine days early. It came three days earlier last month. My cycle went off on the 8 and i had unprotected sex on the 9 and 10. He came in me both times. Im like freaking out because I think i may be pregnant. I’ve been have server lower abdominal pains at times like a real bad cramp. Is this an indication that i may be pregnant?

  15. Hi, Im 24years old, married, and my problem is, I’m worried if im preggy or not. I missed my menstruation flow for 12 days. On the 8th day i missed it, I decided to take a pregnancy test and the result is, it has two lines but the other line is light. I try it again the next day morning and same day afternoon, they’re the same result. After 5 days(and that’s now), I have my period..I’m just worried about it..I need an advice.. Thanks

  16. Srry for posting so much…my bf and I had unprotected sex on 7/11/09 and it is 7/24/09 today and I still haven startd my period and this month is almost over I have wetness down in dat area its slippery and lotion like and I feel bloated and my breast are sore umm can I b pregnant I’m 16 I’m not scared to be or ne thing I jus want to knw if its signs yu knw jus want to make sure b4 I by a hpt so umm plz write bak on dis I cud relly use yur advice thanks

  17. I am 20 years old and my boyfriend and I have been try to not have sex but on the 21st we fooled around and he stuck it in for literally a second and then later fingered me. I am taking birth control but I missed my pill the night before the day that this happened. I was supposed to get my period yesterday and I’m freaking out because there is no indication that I’m going to start. Normally I get cramps and other little signs that I’m going to start and right now there’s nothing. I’m so scarred and maybe I’m being stupid and paranoid but is it possible that the stuff came out of his penis in that short amount of time and by him fingering me it could have pushed it along up in there? I feel silly because I’m sure it’s nothing, at least I hope, but I need an answer before 5:00 tomorrow. If I don’t get my period by that time plan b will still have a chance of working but I hate to spend 45 bucks or whatever it costs on something that most likely wasn’t needed in the first place. Please hurry!

  18. Hi I’m Marina
    As I said b4 my boyfriend and I had intercorse and now I’m wet down der and it comes out of no where is dis a sign of pregnancy I need advice so sum one plz write bak to me on dis

  19. Hey girls! Sorry for the delay of my answers… hope you’re not very upset on me because of that! Thank you very much for your appreciation and I wish I could have enough time to answer you all immediately.

    First of all, I’ve observed the great impact of the article “How do you know that you are pregnant“. Many of you have the symptoms mentioned by me in the article and it may be that you are pregnant (although it isn’t a certainty in many cases). As you know, the best way to find out for sure what happens to your body is to go to the doctor. I know it’s is not a pleasant thing to do but it gives you the most correct answers when pregnancy tests can’t do it.

    Julie, you shouldn’t lose confidence in yourself because you think your breasts are not big enough. There are some physical exercises that can be done in order to reshape them, although I can’t guarantee you that it will make them look bigger. Absolutely, surgery is not an alternative always.I’ll write an article on the importance that sport has on reshaping our body.

    Keep in touch.

  25. I’ve been having multiple signs of being pregnant and I’ve taken several tests but they all say negative. I have one child but didn’t even know I was pregnant the 1st time til I was 2.5-3 months along and my mom actually called me out on it…I had no idea and never got sick. About 6 weeks ago my bf and I had unprotected sex a few times and he never pulled out. I woke up twice last week with this weird metal taste in my mouth which I recently read can be a sign and have had some clear discharge along with being unusually horny everyday. I’ve also had cramping in my upper abdomen and some back pain. I know the obvious answer would be a blood test but could any of this just be stress???

But i wasnt sure that i could get pregnant as i only have a period every 6 months or so… can anyone help me???
    im very confused!

  29. HELP Please, im 17 years old. about three weeks ago i started feel like i might be sick almost every day. not all day, but sometime during the day. ive started peeing more often, ive been moody, and it seems like ive completely lost my appetite. my first thought was that i was pregnant but my breasts dont hurt at all, nor have they gotten any bigger.

    ive also seemed to lose weight instead of gain weight! i took a pregnancy test 2 days ago and it was negative. however my period is irregular so im not sure if it was really the first day of my missed period or not, all iknow is that i was supposed to start this week.

    im not on birth control, and my boyfriend and i only use condoms maybe half the time.

    i know the test up negative but i FEEL pregnant. can anyone tell me maybe why else i could be feeling this way? other than being pregnant. or are these strictly pregnancy symptoms?

  30. I have been on a pill that keeps me from getting my period for about a year and a half now. Lately I have been feeling many of the signs of pregnancy. The test came up negative but something is telling me something isnt right in my body. Since I dont get my period i dont really know what to do about it. I 18 and scared, i just finished high school and am supposed to go to college in a month. What do I do?

  31. hi,my period is regular always on the 1st of the month..but this month i miss my period..i already do the pregnancy test but negative am i test too early? and i do feel lazy and i always sick i got no appetite to eat

  32. also, i didnt mention, but i was pregnant a few years ago (although nothing came of it) and i am having similar symptoms as i did back then, but i took 3 pregnancy test back then and they all came back neg. even though i was over 6weeks. it wasnt til i went to the doctor and even they had to do 2 tests to make sure it was positive.. so i dont trust tests.

  33. hi.. just a bit of advise please..
    I got the depo injection back in april, i started bleeding for a month after it and then it stopped and ive had nothing since, the doctor told me this was normal (but its never happened to me before). Now, i feel weird, ive been feeling sick in the mornings, sometimes being sick, i cant stop urinating, im sooo tired, and you mentioned body temperture well im roasting constantly… i even wake up during the night sweating.. basically i have every symptom you mentioned in one way or another.. could i be pregnant even though i got the injection.??
