Well... depending on how you mean noticable there are a few answers to this question. If you mean noticable as in having symptoms and beginning to wonder if you are pregnant.. ON AVERAGE symptoms begin between 4 and 8 weeks. Most noticable would be morning sickness of course but not all women get morning sickness and some don't even have symptoms. If you mean noticable as in "showing" I would say for a small or average sized women 4+ months is noticable and usually requires maternity clothes. For a larger woman it just depends when other people will notice it. I am a bigger gal and although I noticed stuff around 3 and 4 months like my jeans getting uncomfortable... other people probably thought I was just getting fat.. I would say by 6 months it is unmistakable though. Unfortunatley, symptoms of pregnancy can be mistaken for flu symptoms, cold symptoms, premenstrual symptoms, and stress symptoms or vice versa. The problems of relying on symptoms to "know" or even hope is that they can often be confused with some of the other things I just listed... there is only one way to be sure... buy a test as soon as you can. If you can't wait that long go to your Dr. and have blood test. But I warn these can become expensive. (Mine was $90) and that is a lot of money for it to be 50/50. While the $90 is totally worth getting an early positive to me I also think it is too much money to get a negative test back.... good luck... Pam AKA greenidparalegal

What is the difference between the pregnancy symptoms caused by stopping the pill and actually being pregnant?

Hi, You will sometimes receive pregnancy symptoms when taking BCP because of the hormones contained in BCP. This is very normal and the symptoms usually decrease after 3 months. In regard to real pregnancy symptoms, the only difference is you will not be on BCP when you're having pregnancy symptoms. If you're taking BCP and you experience pregnancy symptoms, the only think you can do if you suspect pregnancy is to see your Doctor for a blood test to confirm or rule out pregnancy. Missed period Positive pregnancy test Feeling sick/actually being sick Really tired/exhausted Hungrier or loss of appetite Food cravings Food/smell aversions Headaches
