How soon can you tell?

Discussion in 'Pregnancy' started by ticatica, Mar 28, 2011.

  1. This may sound ridiculous but....3 days after what would have been conception, I think I might be pregnant. This isn't planned so it's not wishful thinking. I had a miscarriage over a year ago and I can only liken how i'm feeling now to that previous time....nauseous, a bit crampy and tired.

    Is 3 days too early to tell?
  2. I've no idea to be honest - I guess it depends how quickly the embryo implants itself - although the hormones would already be starting to change.
    It will be interesting to see if you are - and very impressive knowledge of your body!
    Fingers crossed for you.

    The more expensive pregnancy tests claim to detect HCG, the 'pregnant' hormone, up to 5 days before your period is due (if you use concentrated urine eg first morning urine)... I was 6 weeks pregnant by the time I found out but it was a slightly unusual situation.
    If your periods are regular you can test a few days before you are due, if not wait a couple of weeks from when you thought you would have conceived and do a test! Superdrug used to do BOGOF on first response, I must have bought at least 50 over 11 months when trying to conceive - hubby doesn't know this [​IMG]
    Our bodies play tricks on us- all those months desperatel trying ( and many women try for much longer) I was convinced I had sore boobs, felt sick etc and nothing, then when I finally did conceive I had no symptoms apart from feeling a bit tired. Hope you get the result you want x
