What is the probability of showing signs of pregnancy but not being pregnant?

Quite likely: Signs are just signs; for example, bloating, indigestion, certain foods, certain infection (viral or bacterial)...All can give the signs and symptoms of pregnacy. And ironically some ladies do not have any signs of pregancy until close to delivery. I have one young lady gave birth whild was in the bathroom; she never knew she was pregnant! but ruling out pregnancy is quite easy and not costly. ...Read more

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'm 27 days late and I have not started all of my pregnancy test come back negative could I still be pregnant I'm showing a little sign of it ?

Pregnancy unlikely: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

Conception was about 3 days ago and my girlfriends showing signs of being 
pregnant also she took a pregnancy test and it was positive is it too soon
?

Earlier than that: If a pregnancy test is positive it would be w-a-y to soon 3 days after conception: she got pregnant earlier than 3 days ago, at least 11-12 days before, theoretically maybe longer than that. When was her last normal period? Good wishes. ...Read more

I'm started spotting 5-7 days past ovulation and showing no signs of starting. What could be the cause? Is pregnancy a possibility?

I'm started spotting 5-7 days past ovulation and showing no signs of starting. What could be the cause? Is pregnancy a possibility?

We never say: Is impossible butbleeding at this point, from a pregnancy this cycle, is not happenning. The implanting blastocyst would be microscopic in size. Intermenstruial bleeding is what you are having, its not unusual but check a pregnancy test of concerned. Good luck. ...Read more

My ob told me I have a pending miscarriage. I'm not showing any signs of a miscarriage and am still having pregnancy symptoms. IS he wrong?

My ob told me I have a pending miscarriage. I'm not showing any signs of a miscarriage and am still having pregnancy symptoms. IS he wrong?

Probably not: It depends on how he made that determination. Most likely, he is following BHCG levels and they are not rising appropriately or falling. you need to spas, him to explain why he said this. If he called it a threatened miscarriage, though, it doesn't men for sure you will. Again, you need to ask him for more information. ...Read more

I've recently just did a pregnancy test.  It said I wasnt. Yesterday,almost vomit because the smell of popcorn.Howcome I'm showing signs of pregnancy?

Errors possible.: Hello, Home pregnancy tests can be very reliable. However there is a possibility of a false negative. Try another test and follow the instructions closely. If the result is still negative & you still have symptoms, see your doctor, a Planned Parenthood Center, or a Health Department Clinic. They can do another urine test or blood test to check. Use protection, avoid alcohol, drugs ,till sure. ...Read more
