Signs You’re Pregnant
Common early signs of pregnancy, according to the Mayo Clinic may include:
- A missed period
If you missed a period, you might be pregnant. This symptom can be misleading if you have an irregular menstrual cycle, as irregular periods may be frequent for you.
- Frequent urination
Finding yourself going to the bathroom more frequently? The increased blood in your body during pregnancy caused your kidneys to process extra fluid which then ends up in your bladder.
- Tender, swollen breasts
Do your breasts feel abnormally sensitive and sore lately? This is a sign of pregnancy and the discomfort will decrease after a few weeks as your body adjusts to hormonal changes.
- Nausea with or without vomiting
Everyone is familiar with the daunting morning sickness that comes with early pregnancy. You may feel this often, one to two months after you become pregnant. Some women may experience nausea earlier and some none at all. Pregnancy hormonal changes likely play a role in this symptom.
- Food aversions
Noticing foods smelling super strong lately? When you are pregnant, you are more sensitive to certain odors and your sense of taste may be different as well. These food preferences can be due to many different hormonal changes.
The hormones in your body in early pregnancy could cause you to feel emotional and weepy. Mood swings also are very common.
Fatigue and feeling overly sleepy are very common to experience in your early pregnancy. The increase in the levels of the hormone progesterone during early pregnancy could attribute to this symptom.
