Common: Unfortunately, these symptoms can be very common in pregnancy. As the baby grows inside you, your blood supply is being shared, so you can naturally get tired, and you also will crave more food to provide nutrition to the growing baby as well.

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. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

What do you advise if I was diagnosed with pregnancy diabetes. I am always hungry and losing weight.?

Possibilities: Hi. While gestational diabetes is most likely type 2, I've seen many type 1s diagnosed during a pregnancy. Have your OB check type 1 autoantibodies. If positive, you have type 1. Jump on control (either an endocrinologist or HROB who's comfortable with type 1). Type 2 GDM usually isn't losing weight. Good luck! ...Read more

I am three days late, just started spotting. Lately I have been nauseated, moody, tired and always hungry. Test came back negative. Am I pregnant?

Pregnant?: Spotting is not inconsistent with pregnancy, but try a serum HCG test, which is much more accurate than home pregnancy tests.
