What are possible alternative causes for Chadwicks sign Hegars sign Goodells sign Braxton Hicks or Ballottement?

Ballottement indicates an increase of fluid over the patella at the knee joint - this has more to do with an injury or infection and nothing to do with pregnancy. Braxton Hicks or practice contractions are uterine contractions not usually felt until the second trimester or third trimester of pregnancy - the only cause of Braxton Hicks is pregnancy. Chadwick's sign is a bluish discoloration of the cervix, vagina, and labia caused by the hormone estrogen, its presence is an early sign of pregnancy. Goodell's Sign is a softening of the cervix and vagina - an indication of pregnancy. Hegar's sign is a softening at the cervix (lower end) and the fundus (top of) the uterus - an indication of pregnancy. While similar conditions may have alternative causes - Braxton Hick's, Chadwick's, Goodell's and Hegar's are all found in pregnancy.

No. There is no such thing as a general sign language. In the US and English-speaking Canada, American Sign Language is used. Mexico uses Mexican Sign Language, which is not related to the sign languages of other Hispanic countries.For example: An American deaf person speaking American Sign Language can't understand an English deaf person speaking British Sign Language because the two sign languages are not related at all.Here is a list of 124 major sign languages and sign language families in the world:Adamorobe Sign LanguageAlgerian Sign LanguageBamako Sign LanguageBura Sign LanguageBurkina Sign LanguageChadian Sign LanguageDogon Sign LanguageEritrean Sign LanguageEthiopian sign languagesFrancophone African Sign LanguageGambian Sign LanguageGhanaian Sign LanguageGuinean Sign LanguageGuinea-Bissau Sign LanguageHausa Sign LanguageKenyan Sign LanguageLibyan Sign LanguageMalagasy Sign LanguageMauritian Sign LanguageMofu-Gudur Sign LanguageMoroccan Sign LanguageMozambican Sign LanguageMbour Sign LanguageNamibian Sign LanguageNanabin Sign LanguageNigerian Sign LanguageRwandan Sign LanguageSierra Leonean Sign LanguageSomali Sign LanguageSouth African Sign LanguageSudanese sign languagesTanzanian sign languagesTebul Sign LanguageTunisian Sign LanguageUgandan Sign LanguageYoruba Sign LanguageZambian Sign LanguageZimbabwean sign languagesAmerican Sign LanguageArgentine Sign LanguageBolivian Sign LanguageBrazilian Sign LanguageBribri Sign LanguageBrunca Sign LanguageChatino Sign LanguageChilean Sign LanguageColombian Sign LanguageCosta Rican Sign LanguageOld Costa Rican Sign LanguageCuban Sign LanguageDominican Sign LanguageEcuadorian Sign LanguageGreenlandic Sign LanguageGuatemalan Sign LanguageGuyanese Sign LanguageHonduras Sign LanguageInuit Sign LanguageJamaican Sign LanguageJamaican Country Sign LanguageKajana Sign LanguageKeresan Sign LanguageMaritime Sign LanguageMayan Sign LanguageMexican Sign LanguageNavajo Sign LanguageNicaraguan Sign LanguageOld Cayman Sign LanguageQuebec Sign LanguagePanamanian Sign LanguageParaguayan Sign LanguagePeruvian Sign LanguagePuerto Rican Sign LanguageProvidence Island Sign LanguageSalvadoran Sign LanguageTrinidad and Tobago Sign LanguageUruguayan Sign LanguageUrubú Sign LanguageVenezuelan Sign LanguageAfghan Sign LanguageAlipur Sign LanguageAmami Oshima Sign LanguageAuslanBan Khor Sign LanguageBhutanese Sign LanguageBurmese sign languageCambodian Sign LanguageChinese Sign LanguageEnga Sign LanguageGhandruk Sign LanguageHawaiʻi Sign LanguageHong Kong Sign LanguageHuay Hai Sign LanguageIndo-Pakistani Sign LanguageJakarta Sign LanguageJapanese Sign LanguageJhankot Sign LanguageJumla Sign LanguageKata KolokLaotian Sign LanguageKorean Sign LanguageMacau Sign LanguageMalaysian Sign LanguageMongolian Sign LanguageNa Sai Sign LanguageNaga Sign LanguageNepali Sign LanguageNew Zealand Sign LanguageOld Bangkok Sign LanguageOld Chiangmai Sign LanguagePapua New Guinean Sign LanguagePenang Sign LanguagePhilippine Sign LanguageRennellese Sign LanguageSolomon Islands Sign LanguageSamoan Sign LanguageSelangor Sign LanguageSingapore Sign LanguageSri Lankan sign languagesTaiwanese Sign LanguageTibetan Sign LanguageThai Sign LanguageVietnamese sign languagesYogyakarta Sign LanguageYolŋu Sign Language
