Signs Saying You are Pregnant

1. Swollen and tender breasts Soreness or tingling in breasts is one of pregnancy’s most common symptoms. Early in pregnancy breasts will fill out and change shape as they prepare to produce milk. Breasts may become very tender and sensitive for a few months as a result.

2. Darkening areolas For many women, hormones can cause the areolas, the circles around nipples, to widen and darken during pregnancy. This occurs as the body prepares itself for breastfeeding.

3. Urinary frequency or constipation When you’re pregnant, your uterus presses directly on the bladder leading to more frequent urination. The added pressure and intestinal changes may also cause constipation. 

4. Fatigue Many women feel very tired early in pregnancy as it takes lots of energy to create a baby

5. Nausea or Morning sickness Nausea or the morning sickness is one of the most common side effects of pregnancy. 

6. Smell Sensitivity Many women have a heightened sense of smell during pregnancy. This symptom is one of the most common early signs that you could be pregnant.

7. Elevated basal temperature Normally in pregnancy, there  is an increase of about one degree that lasts for more than two weeks after the “dip” in temperature that indicates ovulation.

8. Missing period The most obvious indicator of pregnancy is a missed period, but a missed period doesn’t always mean a baby is on the way.

9. Unusual hunger Pregnant bodies are working hard to grow that baby, and need more extra calories a day.

10. Headaches The frequency of migraine headaches can increase with pregnancy. 

11. Mood swings Many women experience emotional mood swings throughout pregnancy. It’s natural to go through a variety of emotions as hormones are adjusting and the body is changing.

12. Feeling faint or dizzy Shifting hormones, combined with the heart beating faster to pump more blood through the body can cause blood pressure to gradually decrease early in pregnancy. As a result many women experience periods of dizziness or feeling lightheaded.

13. Metallic taste in mouth Some women complain of an odd “metallic” taste in their mouths during pregnancy.
