Hi my gf is over two weeks late and test showed up negative. She is showing no sign of pregnancy. What are the possibilities?

Irregular periods: There are lots of reasons a persons period can be late. If there is a chance you could be pregnant then you should repeat a home pregnancy test. If it is negative then waiting a few weeks to see if it returns is reasonable. If it does not then it is time to visit your friendly obgyn doctor to discuss irregular periods. ...Read more

I took another pregnancy test like i was told to here, it's showing a very slight positive, you can barely see the blue line, what dose it mean?

I took another pregnancy test like i was told to here, it's showing a very slight positive, you can barely see the blue line, what dose it mean?

It depends.: It depends on how long after intercourse you took this test. If it was 2 days, do it again in a week. If 2 weeks, and you did it before, and it was the same, it most likely means you aren't pregnant. You should be getting another period soon, which would confirm this. If you don't, you still could be not pregnant, and it could be some other reason, at which point, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

How many months of pregnancy do you start showing?

How many months of pregnancy do you start showing?

Is she or isn't she?: Be careful who you ask! many of us who were not pregnant have been asked if we were :). So it is risky looking at someone's belly and assuming she is pregnant unless she announces it. If asking on behalf of oneself, an expectant woman might notice a fullness in the second trimester. But trying to estimate how far along is best done with ultrasound estimates of the number of weeks of gestation. ...Read more

I'm on my 4th pregnancy and at 5 weeks im showing is this normal ?

Hard to believe : At "5 weeks" of pregnancy, you are just one week past your missed period. You have a 3 week-old embryo, which is about 1/5 inch long and weighs less than a gram. Your HCG urine pregnancy number is likely from 1000-10, 000 and Progesterone level around 15. You may have symptoms of breast tenderness and nausea but as for "showing" ...There's not much to "show." close friends may guess, though. ...Read more
