Am I pregnant? Here’s how to find out for sure
Think you might be pregnant? The only way to know for sure is to take a test, but our bodies can start to give us signs that we've got a baby on-board from as early as the first week of pregnancy.
The top five signs that women experience during pregnancy are nausea, needing to wee more often, headaches, darkening skin around the nipples and either cravings or aversions to particular types of foods, so if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms then head to our full am I pregnant? guide to get more information on pregnancy signs and symptoms. If you’ve got all the signs of pregnancy then you’re probably thinking of taking a test, but when should you do it and is it really as simple as weeing on a stick?
Our pregnancy test overview covers key questions such as when you can take a test, how a test works and whether home pregnancy tests are 100% accurate. For example did you know the best time to take a test is early in the morning and that drinking a lot of fluid before a test can make it less likely to detect the hCG hormone which indicates your pregnant.
Once you confirm you’re pregnant our due date calculator can help you work out when your bundle of joy is due.
