With a tubal, there would be intense pain, and by 3 months she would have had symptoms because the size of the baby at this point would have ruptured her fallopian tube. So I seriously doubt it is a tubal pregnancy.
Also, you are incorrect that an ectopic pregnancy doesn't show up on a pregnancy test. It does. The embryo is developing and therefore the pregnancy hormone HCG will be present.
I do not think your friend is pregnant. But if she hasn't had a period in three months when she has otherwise been regular, she needs to go to the doctor, insurance or no. She could have an STD or other illness that has affected her cycles.

I kind of doubt that your pregnant, it sounds like you might just have a long cycle. Your last one was at least 30 days, since you said you didnt have one all of Feb, so it would make sense that you wouldnt have one for at least 30 days after the beginning of the last one. You calculate your cycle lengh by counting days, from the first day of your period to the day before your next one. Good luck!

A big sign is missing your period. Other possible causes of missing your period are travel, fatigue, stress, illness, extreme weight gain or loss, going off the pill and breastfeeding.
Morning sickness is also another biggie. It usually occurs 2-8 weeks after conception. I started feeling slight waves of nausea around the time my period was due, obvioously it didn't arrive because I'm 13 weeks pregnant! Other possible causes of nausea are food poisioning, emotional stress and a variety of illnesses.
Frequent urination is another sign some women have. It usually rears its ugly head as early as 2-3 weeks after conception. Other possible causes are urinary tract infection, stress or diabetes.
Tingling, tender and swollen breasts is a very common pregnancy symptom. It can occur as early as a few days after conception, I know that was the case for my two pregnancies! Other possible causes are birth control pills and impending menstruation.
Another sign is darkening of the aerola (area around the nipple) and elevation of the tiny glands around the nipple. This usually happens later in the first trimester, although I noticed it around the same time I got a positive pregnancy test, when my period was due. Other possible causes of this are hormonal imbalances or the effect of a prior pregnancy.
A big sign for me was blue and pink lines under skin and later on abdomen. For me, I found that my breasts were the first to look like a road map with blue veins, about 5 days after conception. After that my thighs, hands and feet started to show veins as well. Later on, purple veins appeared under my armpits, on my eyelids and on my cheeks - I have very light skin. This usually occurs later on in the first trimester. Other possible causes are hormone imbalance or the effect of a prior pregnancy.
Food cravings can drive pregnant women insane! They usually appear in the first trimester. Other possible causes include poor diet, stress and impending menstruation.
A big sign for me, was tiredness. I used to almost be an insomniac, and about a week and a half after conception, I struggled to keep my eyes open past 8.00pm.
I also started to have 'grumpy pregnant lady' mood swings!
I'm going to include the link to a trying to conceive forum that I think you might find useful. It's full of supportive women with boundless knowledge about these issues. I learnt so much there that I doubt I would have learnt otherwise.

First Response Early Test is always reliable and accurate and shows results much earlier than any others. Clearblue Digital is a very close second as it is great to see the word "pregnant" and have no doubt! x

She's scared, that's why she's behaving like this.
She's carrying a child and with that brings huge responsibility. She also thinks you don't love her and that's going to make her even more unsettled at this very delicate time. She thinks she's on her own and unloved with a baby on the way - I'm not saying that she's right, I'm just saying that's how she feels.
I don't know what caused the split... was it that you were a reluctant father at first? We all have our doubts and that's perfectly natural. But what she needs is for you to reassure her that it's all going to be ok.
All you can do is be patient with her; keep reassuring her how much you DO love her, how excited you are to be a dad and raise this family together. Don't get impatient with her... just keep letting her know you love her and want to be with her, not out of duty to the baby, but because you love her!
Good luck xx
