If you have had positive pregnancy tests GO TO THE DOCTOR! Babies (and their moms) don't do well with no or little prenatal treatment! On second hand if you are pondering if you are pregnant or something of that nature.. you can go by the time of conception if you know when it was and just count it up. Or you can go from your last period. Most women conceive / are fertile from about 10-14 days after the first daay of their last period. So if you count it that way you should be pretty accurate. Despite the 9 months cliche' a pregnancy actually lasts for 40 weeks or 280 days which turns out to be 10 months but since there are 5 weeks in some of the months the duration of the 40 weeks is stretched over 9 months. If you don't want to calculate it yourself go to any of the baby web sites such as baby center or baby zone and they have pregnancy calculators.... you just have to know your due date or time you conceived. It also gives you week by week pregnancy info on you, your body, and your baby's health and development! Hope this helps! Pam

If you have loss of pregnancy symptoms but have no bleeding what could be wrong?

What other symptoms are you experiencing and how far along is the pregnancy? If it is early in the pregnancy you may notice your temperature going down as a symptom that the pregnancy is not viable. If you are far enough along you may need to see a doctor to help your body let the pregnancy go. Your body will not always naturally shed the pregnancy (called 'spontaneous abortion') on its own. There are two ways the doctor can help you. If the pregnancy is not viable and is very early there is a pill you can take that will basically make you get a very heavy period. If you too far along they will do a D & C which means they physically scrape out your uteras and remove the pregnancy that way.
