Don’t guess.: Take a test.  they are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.

Possibly: Need additional information to answer this question fully. But to start, it sounds like you're saying you were pregnant, how long ago? 16 days since you're period was due... Is the pregnancy test still positive? There are a lot of reasons to be 16 days late, and if you were pregnant, and miscarriage wasn't confirmed, then, yes, you could still be pregnant. Consider re-asking question.

Did you take: A pregnancy test and it was positive? If not you might want to take a pregnancy test and check it.If you know you were pregnant and are now bleeding get it checked. It is not uncommon to have hormonal imbalances with irregular bleeding but it should not start all of a sudden at 32. You should probably see the doc.

A 39-year-old member asked:

Is it safe to be standing all day while pregnant?

Yes: Pregnant women should be physically active, exercise and in most cases can continue their normal work routine. Standing may be uncomfortable but not dangerous. Leg stockings help decrease swelling. Pregnancy support belts help with back pain. Women with preterm labor or a short/incompetent cervix should check with their doctor for specific restrictions.

No: There is no known 'safe' amount of cigarettes to smoke during pregnancy. Nicotine and other toxic chemicals present in cigarette smoke have been shown to adversely affect pregnancy.

Common in Pregnancy: Many pregnant women complain of memory loss or feeling distracted. No one really knows why but theories include sleep deprivation and hormonal changes. Some studies show there is some memory loss in pregnancy and others show there is not. Just write down to do lists and stay organized. There is a great iphone app called "where's my car" maybe you should try it? I love it.

Yes: The vagina and cervix secretes a thin fluid(mucous) to make penetration of the sperm easier at the time of ovulation.
