Are you pregnant?

The signs of pregnancy can include; missed period, feeling sick, vomiting, having sore or larger breasts, feeling dizzy or more tired than usual.  It is possible to be pregnant and not experience any of these symptoms.  If you think you might be pregnant, it is a good idea to take a pregnancy test if your period is more than a week late.

The length of a pregnancy is measured from the first day of your last period.
