Sick?: If by sick you mean things like coughs, clods and sore throats, the answer is that these are seldom of any harm to your baby. These are usually common viral infections that your body fights off quite nicely. Some less common viral infections can be a problem. Check with your caregiver when you are sick. Nausea/ vomiting of pregnancy will not hurt the baby unless you become very, very i'll from it. ...Read more

I'm have been feeling tired recently, still bloating;if i take a test will it show any results of pregnancy?Or after miss period?Also high fever night

Maybe. Maybe not.: A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and the test is not needed yet. ...Read more

Hard to tell: 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. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more
