Early signs of Pregnancy

Even though many women do not get to know until the first 4-6 weeks that they are pregnant, there are signs which could give a signal of your pregnancy.

A Missed Period

A missed period can be sign of pregnancy. Many women have their period after the normal 28-day cycle. But for others who usually bleed after 28 days regularly can go for a pregnancy test.


For many women, nausea happens from the first month but for some it happens later in the pregnancy. Often Nausea, which is referred as morning sickness can also happen in noon, evening or night.

Food Aversion

It’s common for women to have food aversions while pregnant. Many women feel repulsive of the smell by the smell of a coffee or a sandwich. You may notice that certain foods that you usually enjoyed make to repulsive.


Feeling tired and fatigue is a common sign of the first trimester during pregnancy. It continues for a couple of month then ebb later on. Increasing hormones in the body can be the likely cause of feeling tired and fatigued.

Mood Swings

It’s common to experience mood swings in pregnancy. It may partly because of the hormonal changes that affect neurotransmitters. Experiencing heightened emotions, both good or bad, depression or anxiety is common for a mother-to- be.


During the first few weeks of pregnancy, many women feel abdominal bloating, similar to the bloating feeling experienced during periods. Your clothes may feel tightened in the waist even if the uterus is still small.

Frequent Urination

Shortly after conceiving, a chain of hormonal change occurs in the body. This increases the rate of blood flow in the kidney which results in frequent urination. As the pregnancy advances, the volume of fluid increases in the kidney. As the baby grows, it creates more pressure on the bladder and the frequent urination continues throughout the 9-month cycle.

Tender and Swollen Breasts

Rising levels of hormones also causes breast tenderness and swollen breasts. The change is much like the tenderness you feel during the periods. The discomfort is likely to decrease as the body adjusts gradually to the hormonal changes.

Light Bleeding

Light bleeding or spotting is very common to happen during pregnancy. It might
happen because of the fertilized egg settling into the line of the uterus. But a
heavy bleeding with pain is a serious concern and one must visit a doctor as early
as possible.
