hi,usually what happens is that when a woman wants to get pregnant,she really gets her mind and soul into it.her emotions are fillled with longing so deep she forgets to relax and live everyday normally, usually this anxiety can lead to 1. getting no periods 2. over eating= weight gain 3. stress(you try to find comfort in wanting to love something/one) 4. you are experiencing your emotional waves and feel secure taking it out on your man with the pretense your pregnant and having mood swings, that way your less guilty of what you say. 5. we need to be loved and understood.
try to forget about how bad you want it and you will get that baby. good luck.

A big sign is missing your period. Other possible causes of missing your period are travel, fatigue, stress, illness, extreme weight gain or loss, going off the pill and breastfeeding.
Morning sickness is also another biggie. It usually occurs 2-8 weeks after conception. I started feeling slight waves of nausea around the time my period was due, obvioously it didn't arrive because I'm 13 weeks pregnant! Other possible causes of nausea are food poisioning, emotional stress and a variety of illnesses.
Frequent urination is another sign some women have. It usually rears its ugly head as early as 2-3 weeks after conception. Other possible causes are urinary tract infection, stress or diabetes.
Tingling, tender and swollen breasts is a very common pregnancy symptom. It can occur as early as a few days after conception, I know that was the case for my two pregnancies! Other possible causes are birth control pills and impending menstruation.
Another sign is darkening of the aerola (area around the nipple) and elevation of the tiny glands around the nipple. This usually happens later in the first trimester, although I noticed it around the same time I got a positive pregnancy test, when my period was due. Other possible causes of this are hormonal imbalances or the effect of a prior pregnancy.
A big sign for me was blue and pink lines under skin and later on abdomen. For me, I found that my breasts were the first to look like a road map with blue veins, about 5 days after conception. After that my thighs, hands and feet started to show veins as well. Later on, purple veins appeared under my armpits, on my eyelids and on my cheeks - I have very light skin. This usually occurs later on in the first trimester. Other possible causes are hormone imbalance or the effect of a prior pregnancy.
Food cravings can drive pregnant women insane! They usually appear in the first trimester. Other possible causes include poor diet, stress and impending menstruation.
A big sign for me, was tiredness. I used to almost be an insomniac, and about a week and a half after conception, I struggled to keep my eyes open past 8.00pm.
I also started to have 'grumpy pregnant lady' mood swings!
I'm going to include the link to a trying to conceive forum that I think you might find useful. It's full of supportive women with boundless knowledge about these issues. I learnt so much there that I doubt I would have learnt otherwise.

Normal weight gain is 25-35lbs but like everyone has said every woman and every pregnancy is different. I gained 70lbs, which was absolutely ridiculous. I was not overeating or anything. I later found out in my 7th month that I had gestational diabetes, which contributed to my massive weight gain.
I have lost 31 lbs so far and trying to lose the rest.

Here's the best advice I heard:
1) take folic acid
2) develop a habit of eating well and exercising
3) live on one income
By eating well and continuing to do light exercise during your pregnancy (e.g. walking, swimming, yoga, etc.) you can improve the health your baby, make labor easier, and also make the pregnancy so much more comfortable. But don't overdo it - too much exercise and too few calories can actually suppress ovulation and make it difficult to get pregnant.
I watched what I ate while pregnant and ended up losing all the weight I'd gain within the first week postpartum, which was great because I'm now 4 months postpartum and my body is just feeling solid enough to start a regular exercise routine. If I'd been worrying about feeling fat all this time I would have driven myself crazy and probably not let myself rest as much as I needed to!
By arranging your lifestyle so that you can live on one income (assuming that both you and your partner currently work) when the baby comes or if something unexpected happens or if you decide that you want to become a stay-at-home Mom, you can afford to do it. Either way, whether or not you "stay home" you will have extra money saved up that you can put toward emergency savings, a college fund, or a romantic trip for just mommy and daddy when your baby is old enough.
