Pregnancy symptoms can include: lack of period, tender swollen breasts, light cramps and possibly spotting at time of implantation, nausea and / or vomiting, feeling tired, insomnia, urinating more often, being more emotional etc. If you don't get your period when anticipated, recommend that you take a pregnancy test. Take care. ...Read more

Yes: Sure, they probably have their minds on something funner. Children don't have a long attention span, and would rather listen to fun things than instructions, anyway. If you want their attention, get at their eye level, gently square their shoulders to yours, and speak to them eye to eye.
