Are You Wondering if You’re Pregnant?

When your period is late, and you’re experiencing some weird symptoms, you may be wondering if you’re pregnant. Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?

Early Pregnancy Symptoms

According to experts, the following symptoms are the most common signs of pregnancy. Are you experiencing any of these?

  • Missed period – This is usually the first sign of pregnancy, but you can have a change in your monthly cycle for other reasons.
  • Tender, swollen breasts – Hormonal changes can make your breasts feel larger than normal and sensitive.
  • Nausea, with or without vomiting – This is often called “morning sickness,” but it can happen at any time, day or night.
  • Increased urination – During pregnancy, your blood volume increases, which causes your kidneys to process extra fluid that ends up in your bladder.
  • Fatigue – A rapid rise in those early pregnancy hormones can cause you to feel more tired than normal.

Other symptoms of early pregnancy can include:

  • Moodiness
  • Bloating
  • Light spotting
  • Cramping
  • Constipation
  • Food aversions or cravings
  • Nasal congestion

You May Not Be Pregnant

Every woman’s pregnancy is unique. Some women experience every pregnancy symptom immediately, and others may not experience any for months.

Many of these symptoms can be caused by other health issues. For instance, nausea, fatigue, and vomiting can be caused by the flu. Needing to use the bathroom frequently could be a bladder infection.

If your periods are generally irregular, many of these symptoms are similar to a period about to start.
