    Following on from PrayerfulHope's thread (9 clues you could be pregnant) I thought I'd add another clue . . .

    Chadwick's Sign
    During pregnancy, chadwick's signs, the vaginal tissue and cervix (which are generally a light pink shade) may darken and take on a bluish or purplish tinge. This colouration is caused from the increased blood flow to the vaginal area, leading to engorgement. This visible symptom may be present as early as the 6th week of pregnancy, although 8-10 weeks along is more typical. Impending menstruation may also occasionally cause this.

    So with that in mind grab a mirror and getting looking ;)

    I've read that before, but never tried to look for it. Even if it's a good sign, I don't know that I want to see parts of me turning blue or purple. It just SOUNDS like bad news! LOL
