Homemade pregnancy test are an excellent way to know if you're pregnant or not even when you're at an area where clinically proved professional maternity test kits are not accessible. Or perhaps you don't have any time to go out and have run out of money to buy test kits.

The tests may give you accurate result if you execute these tests correctly with your morning hour’s first urine sample. All the tests which use urine to check your maternity status are in fact based on human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG ) amount present in your urine.

Signs That Point Out You’re Pregnant

Was it just a couple of weeks ago that you and your partner hit the bed? V omiting and nausea in the morning? Probably. You might have seen some changes in your bod that left you with the question, “Am I pregnant?” Here’s to tell you if you’re bearing a child.

  • Nauseous or shortness of breath. If you get queasy or winded up short in breath after a few walks or going up in a flight of stairs, chances are, you are carrying a little munchkin. Your growing baby may have put some pressure in your lungs.
  • Feeling tired all of the sudden. Sleepy and tired? Your hormones are acting up. This will continue throughout your first trimester and will gradually stop by the fourth month.
  • Swollen breasts. If your jugs are torturing you with pain, take a look at them. Are they getting bigger? Their soreness brings about changes in your body like the darkening of your areolas and the pronouncement of your chest.
  • Missed a period. Perhaps this is the number one sign women can tell that they’re pregnant. While the red tide sometimes gets late, if it doesn’t show up for two weeks now, gather your pee in a cup and do homemade pregnancy test. Take note: If you do get the red tide, check how heavy it is and its duration for days. You might be either having your period or are experiencing spotting.
  • Food cravings. Hitting the fridge lately? Suddenly you want to eat crab even though you didn’t want it before. Now, your favorite beef steak is making you feel queasy. If you start to notice that you’re developing some food issues, you could be pregnant.
  • Mood swings. You suddenly get upset when your hubby didn’t fix his part of the bed, get annoyed by having so many people around you, or get all weepy because your officemate’s child is going to have her first day at school. Emotional turnaround? Heck, you’re pregnant, woman.

How Do Homemade Pregnancy Test Work?

Homemade pregnancy test try to detect the amount of HCG produced upon the formation of the placenta by mixing your morning urine with particular mixtures. HCG is a hormone only created when you’re pregnant.

Since its presence can be found in your pee, medical equipment or homemade methods can tell that you’re with child by examining how your urine reacts to certain ingredients.

Homemade pregnancy test works only after three weeks and more after the date you did the deed.

What Are The Chances Of Having The Best Results?

How correct are homemade pregnancy test?

  • Early morning first urine has a maximum level of HCG, so the odds are high to get exact results from homemade pregnancy test if you execute these tests morning hours with the first pee sample.
  • Drink plenty of water the night before and urinate more in the morning. High amounts of the liquid will give you better results, while a minimal amount can have unclear results.
  • Wait at least 10 minutes or longer for the results. The reaction will take no longer than half an hour.
  • You can repeat the same procedure or try other homemade pregnancy test for a sure result.
