I am having no pregnancy symptoms and no pregnancy signs. Could I still be pregnant?
A: Even without any pregnancy symptoms and no pregnancy signs, there is still a chance you you are pregnant.
- If you think you could be pregnant but you have no typical pregnancy symptoms or signs, there is still the possibility that you are pregnant. Do a pregnancy test to find out for sure.
The absence of typical pregnancy signs and symptoms is not a reliable indication that you are not pregnant or that there is a miscarriage. And the temperature would not tell you anything about miscarriage, either. A 'missed abortion' is a miscarriage without any bleeding or cramps. You would not know about it unless you have an ultrasound showing no fetus or no fetal heartbeat. Early in pregnancy, a missed abortion would be diagnosed by an hCG level that would fall or not rise appropriately. Most miscarriages where women bleed and pass the fetus and placenta usually start as a 'missed abortion' -- the fetus is dead for some time until you start to bleed. You don't have to have symptoms to carry a healthy baby. Most women actually do not have typical pregnancy symptoms and most will go on and deliver a healthy baby. Specifically, after 9-10 weeks when there is a normal decrease in the pregnancy hormone hCG.
