Could my mom be pregnant? She's 50 she still gets her period but sometimes twice in a month, she hasn't really had any symptoms but she is gaining weight in her stomach, she always had a big stomach though, but today she said to me that she couldn't zip through one of her jeans. She had a miscarriage when she was around 35, but she didn't even know she was pregnant at the time.
Buy her a home pregnancy test, put it in front of her, and ask her to take it.
Be prepared for her to not be pregnant and instead be gaining weight (the more likely yet not 100% guaranteed scenario).
Bottom line - you are not in a position with her to judge or push her on this.
Your concern for your mom is touching; however, stating what seems like the obvious, she should be seeing a doctor. Has she made an appointment? No? Why not?
