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

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 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 2 weeks, and you did it before, and it was the same, it most likely means you aren't pregnant. You should be getting another period soon, which would confirm this. 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

Hard to believe: At "5 weeks" of pregnancy, you are just one week past your missed period. You have a 3 week-old embryo, which is about 1/5 inch long and weighs less than a gram.

You may have symptoms of breast tenderness and nausea but as for "showing". ..There's not much to "show." close friends may guess, though. ...Read more

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.

I've had 2 pos pregnancy tests, my dates show 9wks but I'm showing lot. My symptoms have waned. I've had 3 loses, dya think I've miscarried?

Ultrasound?: It sounds like you're pregnant. If you had a recent ultrasound and it showed a heartbeat, that's an excellent sign, as risk of miscarriage drops when heartbeat present. Sometimes symptoms (breast tender, for example) can wane and is not necessarily a sign of miscarriage. If you're worried, though, call your doctor and ask for an ultrasound, not unreasonable given your history. Good luck! ...Read more

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
