Early Signs of Pregnancy

Spread the love

If you are wondering if you are pregnant the only way to be sure in the early weeks is to do a pregnancy test, however there are early signs and symptoms which may give you a clue that you have conceived!

Every woman is different and every pregnancy is different so no two women will experience exactly the same signs and symptoms of early pregnancy and nor will a woman’s future pregnancies be the same as her first. Some women experience all or most signs and symptoms and some only one or two, and to varying degrees.

The early signs and symptoms of pregnancy can be similar to the symptoms you may experience immediately before and during your period so it can be easy to confuse these early signs with expected menstruation.

Top ten early signs and symptoms of pregnancy!

  • Sore or tender breasts
  • Feeling unusually tired
  • Feeling nauseous
  • Feeling oversensitive – a bit moody or grumpy
  • An unusual or metallic taste in your mouth
  • A heightened sense of smell
  • A craving for certain foods or an aversion to foods or smells you usually like
  • A need to urinate more frequently
  • An increase in vaginal discharge (but without itching, soreness or odor)
  • Spotting of blood or what seems like the beginning of a light period

All of these signs and symptoms can be attributable to reasons other than pregnancy, however if you do experience some, or all of them, and find that your menstrual period is late then it may be that you are experiencing the early signs of pregnancy!

A home pregnancy test designed to detect early pregnancy will be able to confirm your suspicions, and sometimes it is only when you find that you are pregnant it makes sense of the unusual symptoms and sensations you have been experiencing.
