What Are Early Pregnancy Symptoms?

Think you might be pregnant? At-home pregnancy tests are very accurate, but only when taken the day after your missed period. While waiting on your period, here are some symptoms of early pregnancy to be on the lookout for. 

What To Watch For

Every woman’s body will react differently to a pregnancy. Some women report very few symptoms, while others are extremely sick for months. Having your radar up for those early pregnancy signs will simply lead you to take a pregnancy test to confirm or dispel your inklings. 

Tender Breasts

Tender or swollen breasts is one of the first physical signs of early pregnancy. Not every woman will experience tender breasts, but if your bra is feeling a bit uncomfortable these days, you may want to take notice. 

Frequent Urination

Another early symptom of pregnancy is increased urination. When a woman conceives, her body begins producing a lot more blood than usual which pushes extra fluid into the kidneys. 

Nausea Without Vomiting

One of the most stereotypical signs of pregnancy is vomiting. We’ve all seen movies where expectant moms smells something unpleasant , and it sends them running to the bathroom. While vomiting itself isn’t common in early pregnancy, nausea is. If you’ve found yourself sick to your stomach more frequently, you may be pregnant. 

Plan Ahead

If pregnancy isn’t something you planned on, waiting to get your period can be nerve-racking.  Know that you have time to make any decisions about your future and pregnancy.
