This is a GREAT resource. IT goes over all of the symptoms: spotting, cramping, breast changes, fatigue, nausea, missed periods, and the lesser recognizable symptoms.

Truth’s about Pregnancy Tests:
Web MD comes through again they give a LOT of off hand knowledge about pregnancy tests and how they work. However; they don’t answer a lot of questions such as one I saw on the QnA earlier: “Can I take a pregnancy test even though I’m bleeding?”
YES you can take a home pregnancy test while you’re bleeding. You can be pregnant and still have a menstrual cycle. There are often directions available on the box of the home test as to how to test while you’re menstruating but you can certainly call the 1-800 number on the box.
As for brands of Pregnancy Tests – they’re not all created equal but they for the most part certainly are all highly accurate.
Yes, most drugs and alcohol can affect the pregnancy test accuracy.
If you suspect you are pregnant after taking a pregnancy test and you have a negative home test. It is always acceptable to go and follow up with a doctor. False positives and negatives; while rare do happen.
