In some cases stress can. In other cases it can be that fact that you might be worrying about it and therefore are creating some symptoms not knowing that you are, that in return is related to the stress of worrying or wondering.

Sometimes PMS symptoms can be a lot like pregnancy symptoms.

Taking Birth Control pills also causes symptoms of pregnancy when you first start taking them because your body is adjusting to the hormones.

A hormone inbalance can make you think that you are pregnant. I have had it many times. I was tired, breasts sore, nauseous,heart burn, smells making me sick, but a negative test. Stress caused me to have this as well as not taking my pills regularly.

Lots of times a woman who has already had a baby will recognize little things before she has missed a period. Not always though, as each pregnancy can be completely different. Otherwise a first pregnancy is usually found only after a period or sometimes two are missed. Pregnancy causes hormone levels to rise and give woman the signs of pregnancy. Most woman who aren't trying to get pregnant don't notice the early symptoms and often there are no symptoms in the first weeks.
