12 Ways To Spot a Pregnant Woman Even Before She Starts Showing

By Devan McGuinness |

There is a true uniqueness to pregnancy that can’t quite be matched during any other time in life. I think that is probably one of the reasons I love it so much — there is nothing you can truly compare it to. There are some similarities to other things in life, but generally pregnancy is a totally unique experience.

Now, it’s usually easy to spot a pregnant woman by what she looks like — the growing lady lumps and baby bump being the two biggest ways. Turns out, there are ways to spot a pregnant lady by how she acts and what she does too — all pretty unique to when she is growing a baby.

You may notice she looks at the toilet paper after a pee (either for blood or the mucus plug).

    I can’t say that I’ve ever been in a situation where I’ve watched another person check the toilet paper after they urinate. Is this something that is common that I’ve missed out on?

    This is one of the stupidest pieces Babble has ever published — as inane as it is bland.

  4. Marz says:

    Yeah, I’ve got to agree with other posters. Why would a pregnant woman who isn’t showing need two towels? Who sees someone else look at her used toilet paper? What early pregnant woman worries about her perineum or would be swollen enough to need slippers at work? These just don’t make any sense considering the topic of the article, and they’re not even funny.

    After reading this I agree this is some of the dumbest stuff I have ever read…and a little insulting. This had to be either written by a man or a woman who has never been pregnant or around anyone who has…makes no sense at all…especially since this is all supposed to be how to tell “before she is even showing.” If the writer was educated at all they would know that for one the mucus plug doesn’t come out until near the end of pregnancy and also if shes not showing yet why would she otherwise not bend over to pick something up? Also the other descrepencies that were mentioned by previous posters. Smh
