I Feel Fine. So How Am I sure I'm Really Pregnant ?

Some women may "feel" pregnant before a pregnancy test will be positive, while others may have no symptoms or may feel like their period is coming. It can be different for each woman and can also be different for each individual pregnancy.

Some common early pregnancy symptoms are:

  • Feeling nauseated
  • Implantation spotting/bleeding. (A very light bleed or spotting around 6-10dpo)
  • Frequent urination
  • Increased appetite
  • Hot flushes
  • An increase in cervical fuid
  • Tender breasts
  • Lethargic
  • Backache
  • Sensitive smell
  • Constipation
  • Irritability
  • High temperatures past your typical luteal phase length (time between ovulation and menstruation)

Charting your temperatures on an ovulation calendar can give you a better understanding of your cycle and alert you if you have gone beyond your typical luteal phase length. If your temperatures stay elevated beyond 18 dpo (days past ovulation) there is a good chance you may be pregnant.

Some women receive a positive pregnancy test earlier than when their period is due, while others may not receive a positive until well after their period is due or until they are further along in their pregnancy.

If your period is late, you have a good idea of when you ovulated and your pregnancy test is negative, it is recommended to seek your doctor's or general practitioner's advice.

Note that some of these symptoms can also be associated with symptoms felt when menstruation is approaching. The only true way to detect a pregnancy is to get a positive pregnancy test.
