Imagine if Doctor Google told you exactly what you wanted to hear? You spend hours googling your pregnancy symptoms only to be disappointed by the answers.

You question: Does swollen breasts mean I’m pregnant? (actually reads more like: ’swollen breasts, tender nipples, pregnancy?‘)
Dr. Google answer:
Tender breasts could also be a sign of your period.

That’s not the answer you want to hear. When you ask Google a question, you are looking for a positive answer. You don’t want to know that IUI has a low success rate or that you will have major side effects from fertility medication. You want Dr. Google to tell you that your symptoms sound like a pregnancy, your husband can conceive without any sperm and that the dark red stain in your underpants could still be implantation bleeding.

It’s sort of like the rest of your life, you ask questions hoping for a positive answer.

To your boss - “Am I still getting that promotion?”
To your partner“Don’t you just love our wedding centerpieces ?”
To your mother“Do you like my new salad bowl hair cut?”
To your friend - “Did you like my new recipe for stuffed folic acid casserole?”

The correct answer should be: “Yes. You are definitely pregnant this time.”
