Is there any way to tell if your pregnant without a conventional preggo test? adult content

i have taken two now and they both come up invalid. the first one i peed on the stick, and thought ok maybe i didnt get enough on it. the second time i peed in a cup and dip it. made an appointnent but cant get in for almost 2 weeks! im dying to know now lol and i dont really want to go buy another test so i thought maybe someone had some old wives tales or something.

  • you could wait 9 months and see if you start having really strong cramps, lol. just kidding, i don't know of anything but that's the 1st thing i thought of before i clicked on your question.

  • nah the tests are the best way. poor you.... i always peed ina cup and dipped the stick that way i wasnt fucking around with sticks and inconclusive answers. takes less time to get an answer too lol

    I love the clear blue tests that give you a digital read out - pregnant or not pregnant.

    i would suggest buy one more box. get a party cup - one of those plastic ones for beer (i like to laugh at during possibly life changing moments) pee in it then dip the stick in it.

    always take the test in the AM though... thats best... once again so you dont waist a test

  • Not as far as I know. Have you tried using your first urine of the morning? My pregnancies never showed up on tests unless I did that and even then it was very faint lines.

  • i've heard if you dream about fish it means you're pregnant... that's all i can think of though

  • There's the old wives tale that if you inject a rabbit with a woman's urine you can tell if she's pregnant. If the rabbit dies, she's pregent. That's not true though. But I do have a friend who swears by a similar thing. Before she knew she was pregnant with her last 2 kids, she had touched and fed rabbits and the rabbits dies a couple days later. lol

    Seriously though, I know the waiting is hard, but I would wait a couple days and test again.

  • Go to the dollar store. They're only $1 and can be just as accurate.

  • @ Digiscrappermom OMG! I have never heard that before but I had 2 rabbits and they both randomly died right before I found out I was preggo. What an odd coincidence.
