Signs And Symptoms Of Pregnancy

To help you distinguish between being pregnant and just thinking that maybe, possibly, you might be pregnant, take a look at our signs of pregnancy and pregnancy symptoms sections or try our on-line pregnancy test. If you're still not sure but you have a pet, then take a cue from them. As Sensing Pregnancy explains, pets are often intuitive when it comes to pregnancy.  Some common early pregnancy symptoms might be morning sickness, tender breasts, frequent urination, tiredness, moodiness, and food cravings.  If you have any of these symptoms you might want to think about taking a home pregnancy test.

hi guys, im a newbie, i'm currently trying to conceive with my other half, i came off the pill at news yrs, had my last withdrawal bleed and then my normal monthlies came back right away as they should be, they were light to start with then got heavier, the last two have been very heavy (as i used to be pre-pill) but month i'm just over a week late (very unusual for me), have most signs and symptoms but currently keep getting negative pregnancy test results, however on the test strips I have the standard horizontal line to show the test has worked but one or two vertical lines which start off pink and then fade away after the 5 mins have passed, any ideas what's going on, anyone else experienced the same?? thanks Em x
