here's a mini-quiz that will tell you if you're really becoming
the intuitive princess that you think you are!
IS YOUR PREGNANCY MAKING YOU
by Jacqui Deevoy
It's said that women become more intuitive - psychic even! -
when they're expecting a baby. So are your hormones
turning you into a pregnant Mystic Meg? Complete our
specially-devised mini-quiz and find out...
1. Now you're pregnant, do you
dream more than usual?
a) Yes - in glorious, occasionally gory, technicolour detail!
b) Not more often, but the dreams are definitely more vivid
c) No, you dream more or less the same as you did before
2. These days, when the phone
rings, what happens?
a) You answer it of course!
b) You think about the caller because you know who it is and
they spring to mind before you even answer
c) You cringe: that ringing noise really jangles your nerves
3. Since you've been pregnant,
* Seen a ghost or
* Noticed an inanimate object move without anyone
* Had a dream come
* 'Known' that something was going to happen shortly
* Had the feeling that a friend or relative is
ill or in trouble, only to discover that you're correct?
4. Do you ever get the feeling
that you know what someone else is thinking?
a) A lot of the time - especially in recent months
b) No, never
c) Occasionally, but then you've always been a bit telepathic
5. What effect would you say your
pregnancy has had on your mind?
a) There's no doubt that being pregnant is distracting, but your
brain's functioning pretty much the same as it always has
b) Your memory's gone completely
c) You're in a world of your own - sometimes it's hard to get
anything practical done at all!
Now work out your scores...
1) a = 3 b = 2 c = 1
2) a = 1 b = 3 c = 2
3) Score 1 for every 'yes'; 0 for every 'no'
4) a = 3 b = 1 c = 2
5) a = 1 b = 2 c = 3
If you scored 13 or over, your pregnancy has definitely
enhanced your powers of ESP (Extra-Sensory Perception).
Regardless of whether you were the psychic type before you were
pregnant, you certainly have more than your fair share of spooky
experiences these days! Being psychic can be useful, but certain
aspects of it can be a hindrance. Use your powers (newfound or
not) wisely though and life'll be a whole lot easier.
If you scored 9 - 12, you're pretty psychic, but you may
have always been this way. Your pregnancy has definitely
affected your brain - you may be more forgetful and you're
definitely more sensitive. It's heightened your psychic ability
too, but perhaps not enough for you to pay too much attention to
it. You may not be a big believer in ESP but chances are,
pregnant or not, you make use of your natural intuition without
If you scored less than 9, you've never really been
especially psychic and your pregnancy hasn't brought about any
major changes in this area. You haven't much faith in the powers
of the mind, but if you want to allow your pregnancy to bring
out your psychic ability, you must first learn to accept that,
although you may not have personal experience of it, ESP does
exist. Once that's done, your psyche will be more open to
