Am I pregnant? The test can tell

The Big Question: Am I Pregnant?

Pregnancy has lots of early signs that some women claim to recognise almost from the moment sperm meets egg. Others may not realise they are pregnant for the first few weeks, until their first missed period or even later.

Every mum-to-be is different and just because you have one symptom doesn't mean you are definitely pregnant. Similarly having no signs doesn't necessarily mean that your attempts to conceive have been unsuccessful.

Check your symptoms here:

If any of these ring true (or even if they don't!) taking a pregnancy test is always worth the peace of mind!

Hi there,

I have a girl who is 3 next wednesday and earlier this month we decided that the time now just about right to give our little girl a brother or sister to play with.

So for the last ten days or so I have been wondering if I am or not and because this is my second I know what the signs are. I have been feeling slightly nauseous. I have been getting cramps which I don't usually ever get so I'm thinking that we may be already on our way but don't want to get too excited. If I get the soreness in the nipples I will know for sure cause it isn't something you can ignore. I won't waste money on a pregnancy test this time I will just go to my doctors in a few weeks and get the test to confirm and hopefully I can get the go ahead to go to the antenatal clinic. Do you realise that I will look very silly if i'm not preg now oh well only another 10 days before I will probably know or not!

look forward to speaking to you all

Hi Ali,

I just found out the other day that I am pregnant, and the only things i'm feeling is nausea and cramping, so i'd say it's a good possibility that you could well be pregnant already. I guess it is a waiting game though for now for you, but i'll be keeping my fx'd and wish you the absolute best of luck

thanks all,

My daughter has given me the cold now so I can't tell if I'm still nauseous but I have been getting a tingly feeling in my nipples. I'm not taking any decongestant just incase. just taking it easy and with my daughters birthday next week that should help me to stop thinking I'm I or aren't I.

take care 4 now

I've been trying to get pregnant for 3 years now. I hate the waiting game, maybe cos it has not come positive as yet. I am very hopeful this month though. My periods are due in 4 days. Should be looking out for any signs or should just wait. Remember, I hate waiting.
