Ovulation: Great question. The only way to know for sure that your ovulating is that you get pregnant. Any and everything else is nothing but circumstantial evidence. I think the most compelling argument that a woman is ovulating is that she has fairly regular periods, pain and cramping or discomfort in the middle of the month and sticky clear mucus, a rise in libido which means mother nature is no fool. ...Read more
I'm worried my period is actually an early miscarriage. Are there any sure signs that would help me tell one way or the other?
Beta hcg test: If your period is at the right time, why are you worried that you were pregnant/miscarrying?

Palpable > 12 weeks: Abdominally you can just feel the top of the uterus above the pubic bone @ 12 weeks gestational age.

After 20 weeks you can measure with a tape measure from pubic bone to the top of the uterus. Weeks = cm so @ 32 weeks, you should tape out to 32 cms. I hope that helps. ...Read more
Does checking pregnency through clear blue are accurate or is there any other way to know accurate result?
Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception.
