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.

  1. For Mel and Sarina: If you have used birth control methods you can’t be pregnant. All the symptoms you mentioned surely have other explanations. If the doubt persists, try having a test. Just do it in order to eliminate all the worries. It helps a lot.

  2. Tiffany, if you haven’t had any sexual contact with your boyfriend you can’t be pregnant. At your age there may appear hormonal disorders which should be of course discussed with a doctor. But, I repeat, these have nothing to do with the fact of you being pregnant.

  3. Priya, try going to a doctor. There are many hormonal changes that happened to your body (because of the abortions you had) and your health estate should be checked by a doctor. Every body is different and also the reactions to all kinds of surgical interventions. It may also be your case. Hope hearing good news from you!

  13. Hi,
    I had unprotected sex on december 17th. He pulled out. I got my period 2 weeks later, but I have not really been feeling well. Ive been dizzy, and tired. My back has been aching also. My boobs have gotten bigger. Is it possible to be pregnant even though I have had a period?

  14. Jela, every pregnant woman should go periodical to the doctor for consultation. In this way the baby’s evolution is under specialised control. The doctor can also tell you how many months has your baby and also, if it’s a boy or a girl just by doing an unpainful echography. Good luck!

  25. Hi Ashley! It might be possible you are pregnant again, especially if you haven’t used any protection methods. If these symptoms persist a week from now, you should go to a doctor. You are either pregnant, either you have some hormonal disorders which should be treated by your doctor. Good luck!

  35. I started my period somewhere around sept 23rd and stopped on the 27th. I was using the Nuvaring as birth control and took it out the week i had my period, I was late by a week putting it back in and during that week i had unprotected sex about four times. Within the past few weeks I’ve been feeling dizzy and nauseous, but i haven’t actually thrown up. I’ve also been extremely tired and bloated and have had dull headaches. Also, during intercourse I’ve been getting extremely wet, which i’ve heard could be a symptom of pregnancy. My breasts have been a little bit more sore than usual but it isn’t anywhere near unbearable or anything. Do you think i could be pregnant?

  36. i had sex a week ago, and i dont know if i could be pregnant or not.. i have been peeing alot but i think it might be all in my head, i also noticed my nipples have been hurting alot? my boyfriend used a condom but we had intercorse for over an hour? .. help please

  37. Hello, I had stopped taking BC about a month and a half ago, almost 2 months ago. Last month I felt nothing out of the ordinary. This month, I feel nausea (I have not actually vomited, but it comes up into my throat threw ‘burp-like’), frequent headaches, extremely tired (my friends are noticing), I had light cramping for about 3-4 days about 5 days ago, sore nipples (but bearable), very wet, etc. I had sex unprotected several times around the first week of October and I found out not long ago that was my fertile period. I am not for sure what time my period is suppose to get here but I am guessing Monday-Thursday. I took a pregnancy test on Wednesday (14th) and this morning (17th). Both negative. I am planning on taking another test if my period is late but I feel so different.. And I wasn’t “planning” on getting pregnant.

    Do you think I still have a chance of a positive coming up?

    Thanks!

  38. I had unprotected sex 5 days ago. since then I have had gas like none other and small amount of cramping down there. my discharge is greater now too – white and thicker. my last period was on the 1st of October. i am worried I might be pregnant. I know you can’t have symptoms of being pregnant this fast – right?? Or can you?? Those are my only symptoms besides heartburn…which could be something else. i just feel bloated and I really hope it is all something else and I am just stressing….HELP!

  39. Hey Question: me and my boyfriend had sex today (sep 24) and i start my period next week on the 1st of october but the condom busted but i didnt nutt but he did…chances about me being pregnant what can i do?

  40. Hi.. i dont know if im pregnant.. my last period was 3 weeks ago.. but my breasts have been super sore for the past 2 weeks my lower back kills and im sleeping by 8pm everynight the past couple of weeks and im moody and want to eat all the time.. is it to early to take a pregnancy test and if so should i be worried that im pregnant?

  41. My husband and I had sex about 2 weeks ago (I don’t take any birth control right now). I got “my period” 3 days ago, but it started off with very heavy, brown discharge. The following day it seemed to get back to normal (heavy red bleeding). However, on the third day of “my period”, I had nothing but light spotting, as if the bleeding went away. Normally I have a week long period with heavy red bleeding until it progresses to light brown/red bleeding. I was just wondering if this situation was normal?

  42. Hey Victoria! I’m very glad that you and your boyfriend are now closer than before. Regarding your question, if your period is missing more than 2 weeks you should take a pregnancy test. This is the maximum time any girl should wait before taking a test or going to the gynecologist.No reason for panic in your case, I dare to say. Hope hearing good news from you.

  43. Thx so much! lol he is always there for me but he just didn’t know or anything so ya lol I asked him ago later and he’s like “well either way I’ll be by your side the whole time.” And he gave me a big hug. so it IS possible that the emotions and stress may be causing this?? I did not know this.

    Okay so about after 2 weeks after TODAY? or like two weeks like as in two weeks ago that he slipped? lol (I’m so confused) lol Thank you so much! Now I know to go here for advice too thx!

  44. Hey girls! This message is for all of you who ask me if your pregnant after you have been giving me some symptoms. The facts that you are having stomach aches, your breasts hurt and are bigger, you have nausea don’t always represent the that you are pregnant (as I’ve also said in an article posted on this blog). Anyway if you have doubts try some pregnancy tests. That’s all I can say. Only after a gynecologist consult one can establish a pregnancy. As I can’t do that, I can’t give a correct answer to the question: am I pregnant or not? All I can say is DO ONLY SAFE SEX and you won’t be put in the situation of asking always whether you are expecting a baby or not. Kisses from T4G!

  45. Hey Victoria! It’s less probable to be pregnant if you’ve had only anal sex. Stress and the emotions you have been passing through may be the cause of the fact that you have been missing your period.If this situation continues, after about 2 weeks try going to a gynecologist. He will know how to treat this hormonal problems. Also try explaining to your boyfriend that the problems you have are his problems too. He doesn’t have to be next to you only on good moments. “Anything possible” is not an adequate answer. Good luck.

  46. Hey! Uhhh my boyfriend and I wanna wait to have sex right? but like we do like ummm Anal but like he slipped once and it was like maybe 2 weeks ago? anyhow I asked him like a day afterwards if it’s possible that some of “him” got into “me” and he’s like “anything’s possible. Why?” and I told him and he said, “I’m sure it’s nothing. Don’t worry.” but I’m (probably) missing my period. I can’t remember if I had it early last month (end of month) or if it’ll be late. Plus my boobs seem a bit bigger but they don’t ache. I noticed that there’s somewhat stretchmarks on my boobs this morning in the shower. I’m scared… I can’t tell my mom or anyone because well… I don’t want my boyfriend to get in trouble. PLEASE HELP!
