To use the mustard seed powder method, fill a bathtub with hot water and add two cups of mustard seed powder to the bath. Soaking in the diluted mixture for twenty minutes and then showering after (to rinse off the yellow powder) will give a good indication if you’re actually pregnant or not. You just need to wait a couple days after your bath to see if your menstrual cycle comes on. If you don’t get your period after a week or two, the chances of you being pregnant are pretty high.
6. Vinegar and Tuna Juice
Although quite a smelly test to conduct, mixing vinegar and tuna juice can give you a pretty accurate indication if you are indeed pregnant. To perform this do-it-yourself home pregnancy test, take 1/4 cup tuna juice and 1/4 cup vinegar and place in a container to leave sit overnight. First thing in the morning, you will want to collect your urine and add it to the tuna/vinegar mixture. The combination of different acids and chemicals in the three very different liquids will make the solution turn a different color. If the solution turns bright green, you are more than likely expecting. If, on the other hand, the solution turns orange or yellow it is likely that you are not.
7. Pine Sol
Not just good for cleaning around the house, pine sol also acts as an agent that will help you determine at home if you are pregnant or not. To use this tried and true test, collect your first morning urine in a clean plastic container with enough room to hold both your urine and about a 1/4 cup of pine sol. You should let this mixture sit for ten minutes. If after this time there is a change of color in the mixture, it is more than likely that you are pregnant. If there is no change in color and the liquid stays the same, the chances of you being pregnant are slim.
8. Soap Water
If you’ve got soap around the house, you can easily conduct a do-it-yourself pregnancy test at home. Although not as effective as some of the other at home solutions, a soap water test can be a somewhat helpful tool to indicate pregnancy. To use this method, collect your urine first thing in the morning in a clean jar or test tube if you have one available. Next, add a small amount of a soap lather solution directly to the collected urine. If this mixture begins to bubble up, there is a chance you may be pregnant. This method has worked for some, but is not the most preferred as many that have used it have not always gotten the most accurate results.
9. Hydrogen Peroxide and Tylenol
This test is usually a pretty good indicator of a positive pregnancy. To use this test, collect your urine into a bowl or other container first thing in the morning. After this, add a tablespoon or so of hydrogen peroxide to the urine, as well as a couple tablets of Tylenol. If your urine turns blue after adding these substances, this is a good indication that you’re expecting a baby. If there is no change in the color at all, it is more than likely you aren’t pregnant.
These above mentioned methods have worked for thousands of women and many have been used for hundreds of years. Although these methods provide accurate results most of the time, it is wise to always follow up a do-it-yourself home pregnancy test with either a store-bought pregnancy stick test or a visit to the doctor. Having a baby can be one of the most exciting times of one’s life, and it is wise to be 100% sure that you’re pregnant so you can take the best possible care of yourself the entire time you’re expecting.
It’s also wise to take good care of yourself and get plenty of exercise when trying to conceive to lay a healthy foundation for the next nine months to come. Having a baby can be one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life, and using these at-home methods to test for the presence of your bundle of joy is one of just a few ways to find out if you are indeed expecting.
