Find answers to your unique pregnancy issues

Here at we've created a guide just for you, to help you navigate this new experience. You can find information on everything you've always wanted to know about pregnancy tests, signs of pregnancy, pregnancy health, early pregnancy, your first pregnancy, and much, much more. We offer you all the pregnancy help you need to stay in the pink of pregnancy health.

Are pregnancy tests reliable? Are some better than others? Which one should you choose from among the myriad choices lining the drugstore shelves? When is it time to use a pregnancy test? We have the information you need to make an educated choice.

But before you run out to your local neighborhood drugstore, take a look at these articles and consider whether your money is well spent in purchasing a pregnancy test at this point in time. Many women, especially those women who have suffered the heartache of infertility, 

stock up on pregnancy tests, and develop what amounts to a pregnancy test addiction. If you are spending much too much time peeing on a stick and then watching for that telltale happy blue line, it may be time to step back and take a look at your symptoms, first.

Pregnancy Symptoms

How can you distinguish the signs of pregnancy from ordinary symptoms of fatigue or a tummy ache? You've missed a period. Is it too early to think about getting a pregnancy test or calling for an appointment with your physician? We have compiled a great deal of information on the topic of pregnancy symptoms. Check your symptoms against the information in this section: nausea (check!), sore breasts (check!), fatigue (check!), peeing all the time (double-check!). You may just be in early pregnancy.

But the symptoms are sometimes so vague it's hard to know. Everyone is fatigued after a hard day and everyone gets a mild intestinal upset with gas from time to time. People even become dizzy when they stand up too fast. It's possible to get your hopes up for no reason though some symptoms seem to be pretty clear-cut. Varicose veins, for instance, are a strong sign that a pregnancy has taken hold, especially when you've had no previous problems with veins. Funny how you never thought you'd be so happy to see those ugly, knobby blue veins. Of course, regular, everyday morning sickness is the oldest, most reliable sign (next to missed periods), that you may have conceived.

We have created a pregnancy calendar to lead you through all three trimesters of pregnancy, so you know just what will happen at each stage of this exciting event. By using our pregnancy calendar as a guide, you'll know exactly when your baby grows fingernails and hair. The pregnancy calendar helps you learn about the new life you harbor inside and makes him seem a lot less like an unknown stranger and more like someone near and dear to you.

What about the complications of pregnancy? Do you lie awake at night worrying about the unthinkable complication that could turn your world inside out? Have you had some symptoms that concern you? Are you worried that it's time to seek medical advice? You've come to the right place to get pregnancy help.

Pregnancy Problems

Pregnancy is exciting, but it's also a bit scary. There is such a high learning curve and so many areas in which things could go wrong. How do you know how to distinguish the pain of an ectopic pregnancy from the normal pelvic pain you might feel as a result of pregnancy hormones softening the pelvic ligaments? You hate to call your physician for no reason because you fear he may become annoyed with you. But how do you calm your mind? After all, an ectopic pregnancy is an emergency of the first degree.

In our pregnancy guide, we cover a wide range of topics relating to pregnancy complications. We tell you the signs and symptoms to watch for and let you know when your symptoms are nothing to worry about. We also help you understand when you must seek emergency care. We have articles describing the risk factors for the various pregnancy complications so you will know how vigilant you must be and what you can do to reduce your risk for pregnancy complications.

By seeking medical care at the right time, you are taking the right steps toward a successful pregnancy outcome. Armed with the information you need, you are in a position to get through this time in your life with flying colors.

Hey there! I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome two years ago. However, it didn't really bother me cause I wasn't planning on getting pregnant, didn't have any weight problems or anything like that. Today, I realized that I am late with my period ( which is pretty usual thing), but I took a pregnancy test which wound up to be positive. I didn't believe my eyes, I was so shocked, so I bought 3 more tests which had the same result. Now, I am really confused, I'm 24 years old who was told that I won't be able to get pregnant unless I take special medications that will balance out my hormones. In spite of everything, I'm pregnant! What are the chances of having normal pregnancy and giving a birth to a normal child? Who can help me?! Please!!!

I am just wandering if anyone else has experienced what I am going through right now. I am a mother of three, and was planning to get married next month, and getting pregnant later this summer. But I think maybe my wish for another child has came earlier than I expected. I have been on the pill, so I wasn't really trying to get pregnant. But I did forget to take my pill two days in a row, right after having sex. But about a week ago, I noticed that I was doing some of the same things that I did when I was pregnant with my other three children. It started off with drinking coffee every day 3 or 4 times a day. I am not really a coffee drinker. I have to really be in the mood for it. But, for some reason, when I am newly pregnant, I will crave it. Then I got to thinking about it, and my last period was only about 4 days, and very light. Usually it lasts for 6 or seven days, and heavy until the last two days of it. Then, starting about a week ago, I have been having to pee a lot, which normally, I pee 3 to 4 times a day. But I have been going to the bathroom every hour. Also, I have had tender breasts, an enlarging abdomen, fatigue, cravings, extreme irratability, and I am always hungry, but nausiated at the same time. Even certain foods make me nausiated just from the way they smell. Usually, I only eat two times a day, and I don't even get hungry until I'm up for a few hours. But I have been waking up hungry. Also, after I eat something, I am either still hungry, or hungry within 30 mins. to an hour after eating a meal. That is not like me at all. I have recently lost 82 pounds, and my stomach had shrunk, so I couldn't eat much at all. Another thing is, I have been ready to go to bed at 8:00 at night, when normally, I don't go to bed until 1 or 2 in the morning. I have done three hpt's and the first two were neg, and the third one was positive, but with a faint line. I went to the Dr. last Fridayand had a blood test done, and it came back negative. The third test was positive after I had the blood test done. I really feel like I am pregnant. After having three children, I know what my body feels like. I have even felt flutters. My breasts have even changed. They have rounded out more and my nipples look like they are ready for breastfeeding. (I breastfed my 3 children). They have also gotten darker and bigger. I am experiencing all the things I have before, so I'm pretty sure that I am. But it is hard to tell without knowing for sure from the doc that I am. My belly even looks like I am pregnant. it is perfectly round. And my fiance took pics of it 5 days ago, and we have noticed that it has gotten bigger since then. After I lost wieght, by belly went away except for the skin that was hanging from being so big and losing wieght. I was just wandering if anyone had any advice for me. I am very confused because the hpt with my children always came up positive as soon as I took it. Can anyone let me know what they think about all of this? And I have not gained any weight, but I never do when I am newly pregnant. I usually lose a few pounds. So, I have an expanding belly without any weight gain. I'm just so confused...
