Early Pregnancy: Unique Ways to Find Out If You're Really Pregnant

Updated on May 12, 2011

A little something different...

If you can't tell already, I really enjoy hubbing about traditional topics in a non-traditional way. It's fun, entertaining, informative and it is my hope that it will always bring a smile to your face.

Now... if you are anything like me, when you first get that inkling that you might be pregnant, you start to scour the world for ways to find out if you are pregnant, before you get a positive on a pregnancy test. Those little sticks are great, but they usually just don't get us an answer soon enough!

So I've compiled a few interesting ways that you can test to see if you are pregnant before you get that positive pregnancy test. Not all of them are fail safe, and have been wrong in the past, though I've known many whom have used them with great results.

The cards will know...

Tarot cards are a wonderful tool when it comes to trying to read into things we can't know in another way. You can ask them every question in the world and they will always give you the right answer. The only problem is, the reader can often make an error in interpreting the cards.

My favorite spread for questions like these is a Yes/No spread.

Shuffle your deck in your hands and think about your question: "Am I Pregnant?"

Ask the cards to show you three cards to answer your question. The more upright cards you get, shows a yes. The more reversed cards you get, means no. So if you get two uprights and a reversed, that's a yes!

Some really affirmative cards to get while asking this question:

~The Empress

~Ten of Pentacles

~Queen of Pentacles

Ask the pendulum

If you've ever done dowsing or scrying, you might find this one particularly fun. If you haven't done them before, you can have even more fun learning how to do so!

All you need is a simple pendulum. You can purchase one at any occult store, or you can make your own from a number of household objects that are probably just sitting around. My favorite is a piece of string and rock. Simple yet effective.

Once you have your pendulum, you will need to calibrate it. You can do so by asking it to show you a yes, in most cases it will go clockwise for a yes. Then ask it to show you a no, to which is will usually spin counter-clockwise. If it swings back and forth only, that is usually a maybe and a swinging left to right is usually a "try again later" or "rephrase your question".

Lie down on a flat surface and hang the pendulum over your belly. Ask it "Am I Pregnant?"

Give it a moment to get going and remember not to swing it on purpose!

Once it gets to swinging, note which direction it is going. You'll need to remember how your pendulum calibrated for you, but for general purposes, if it swings clockwise, that's a yes!


Good ole psychics! They have put themselves out there in the world to answer those seemingly unanswerable questions. So why not give one a ring or a ping and ask them what they see?

Just remember, most psychics have varying abilities in the word of clairvoyance. Some might see that you were recently pregnant and not notice that the egg didn't take, which could give you a false positive. Others might see that you will be pregnant soon, but rush to quickly in giving you an answer, creating another false positive (for the moment).

Just don't blame the psychic. If they say you are and you're not, ask them for details! Being a psychic myself, I've had many people come to ask if they were pregnant, and the minute I got a yes or no answer out, they left the conversation immediately before waiting for a detailed explanation. This can put a damper on things, especially if my reading was that you are pregnant but that you won't be in a few months... Always stick around for the details and remember, psychic or not, all humans are prone to error!

Smelling test...

One of the most common early symptoms of pregnancy, is an aversion or sensitivity to certain smells. So an interesting way to see if you're pregnant, could be to give yourself a smell test.

You'll want to start out with some smells that are already pretty strong - garlic, coffee, car exhaust.... Then go for the more subtle - sugar, flour, wet cat food.... Try out all sorts of things. Make a note of how strong each one smells to you. A really positive indicator of pregnancy, would be if you smell something you regularly smell and it makes you throw up!

If you get nothing at this point, either you're not pregnant, it's to early to tell or you just don't have an aversion to the smells you tested with. Keep smelling things as you go, maybe you'll know after a few days!

    This was a fun read. I'm currently about 8 days late. I did take a hpt about 4 days ago and it said a negative. For the fun of it I did the pendulum and it says yes I'm pregnant, also said yes to it being a girl. Lol if I don't start by this weekend I'll take another test. ;)

    These certainly are unique ways to determine pregnancy! I can vouch for the smell test. With both of my pregnancies, my sense of smell, which is already pretty strong, became even stronger. My husband thought I was nuts. :)

    Voted up and awesome. Well done!
