In brief: Psychological

In most patients with psudocyesis, the official name of false pregnancy, the symptoms are created psychologically.
Breast tenderness, nausea, fatigue and sometimes fetal movement are used. This generally is conscious looking for secondary gain from family members or unconscious in a true psychiatric condition. It is not a common disorder.

In brief: Late period..

The most common symptoms are a late period, bloating, fatigue, and breast tenderness.
Most often, this is due to the ovulatory hormone, progesterone.
