Mothers with experience in previous pregnancies are often able to appreciate the movement earlier than first timers! These first subtle kicks are known as "quickening." The sensation is described as being like popcorn popping, goldfish swimming or butterflies fluttering! Enjoy! ...Read more

3 wks. I've been exhausted. My stomach/lower abdomen is harder than normal. Get sick from certain foods. Gas bubbles. Frequent urination. Pregnancy?

Hard to guess: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. Can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If not pregnant, a doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Labor involves regular contractions you can time with your watch every few minutes. Best wishes ...Read more
