    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Pregnancy symptoms mean nothing if you are not pregnant. Those are all generalized symptoms that could easily be attributed to other causes.

    The only way to for sure know if you are pregnant is either by ultrasound or pregnancy test. If you believe you are pregnant then you should take an HPT or make an appointment with your doctor for a blood test.
