How to make your body feel like a pregnancy test

The brain and the nervous system are like the engine of your body, says Dr. David Rutter, the author of “The Power of Habit.”

If you’re pregnant and your body is not functioning as it should, your nervous system can take a beating, Rutter says.

If you have a bad reaction to your pregnancy test, for example, that’s an indication that your body may not be able to function at a normal level.

Rutter recommends that women wear the test at least 30 minutes before taking it, and keep it in a place where they can see it.

If the results come back negative, Ritter says, you need to call your doctor.

“You need to have a full evaluation, and then make a decision as to whether to continue or to discontinue the pregnancy test,” he says.
