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 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 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
