Pregnancy Signs & Symptoms

Am I Pregnant?Not all women experience pregnancy symptoms at the same time. Some start experiencing certain symptoms right away, while others take longer, and others never experience anything at all.


Pregnancy Tests: Seeing If You’re Pregnant

Pregnancy TestingTaking a pregnancy test can be an experiment if you’re unsure about the process. Before you go out and purchase a pregnancy test, learn about what could go wrong, what could go right and everything in between.

Bloating

Bloating happens to lots of women right before their periods, but it also is an early pregnancy sign.

Missed Period

This is usually the most popular symptom a woman has. Sometimes, during implantation a woman will bleed lighter and for a much shorter period of time, usually a day or two. So if this happens, and your menstrual cycle has not kicked in to high gear, you may be pregnant.

Pseudocyesis (False Pregnancy)

Pseudocyesis, also known as false pregnancy, phantom pregnancy, or hysterical pregnancy, is a form of somatoform disorder—i.e., a psychosomatic condition—that causes a woman to believe she is pregnant despite medical evidence to the contrary.
