  • What do you mean possibly pregnant?? If she's 26 weeks wouldn't she know??

  • she plays a lot of sports so a late or missed period, being tired, and everything is almost normal for her. she doesnt gain much weight since she eats healthy and excercises every other day. so she just noticed that she might be pregnant and it'd be her first. she doesnt know much about pregnancy.

  • If she were that far along, she would KNOW she is pregnant...

  • Well for one... she would start showing a little bit by now, regardless of how in shape she is.
    two... at 26 weeks pregnant you would deffinantly get a positive pregnancy test
    and three... Some women can feel their baby move as early as 16 weeks

    My guess she isnt pregnant. But If I were her Id go see a doctor.
