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 All, I'm new here and am hoping someone can answer my question. Am I pregnant? I had a miscarriage / D&C on March 16, 2012. I had my first period (about 1 month later) on April 19, 2012. I took a pregnancy test today and it shows a positive result! I'm a bit paranoid from my last experience. Is it possible for me to still of the HCG levels in my system from my last pregnancy or am I pregnant??? Thanks for your help!!!!
