A late period. Sore breasts. Unexplained nausea. Unusual exhaustion.
If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, it might mean you’re pregnant. Unfortunately, these are also symptoms of other medical and health conditions. The only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test.
Common Pregnancy Symptoms
Late or Missed Period
This is often the first tell-tale sign of a pregnancy, especially if your period is usually very regular. It’s best to wait at least a week after the date your period was supposed to start before taking a pregnancy test. This will provide the most accurate results.
Swollen or Sore Breasts
Tenderness in your breasts is the second most common early symptom of pregnancy. This happens because your body is producing more progesterone than normal as it prepares for and supports the pregnancy.
If you’re experiencing more fatigue than normal or at weird times during the day, especially in conjunction with some of these other symptoms, it could be a good clue that you’re pregnant. Again, it doesn’t indicate that on its own, but this is a sign of pregnancy as your body goes through a lot of changes.
Food Cravings or Aversions
Another very common sign of pregnancy is either food cravings or food aversions, especially if you’re craving foods you’ve never liked or really hating foods you’ve always loved. The surge in hormones can cause this change and it can feel unsettling, but typically passes after the first trimester (or at least lessens).
