Common EarlyPregnancy Symptoms

The thought of facing an unplanned pregnancy can be overwhelming, but you aren’t alone! Before you start worrying about the possibility of being pregnant, make sure you’re actually pregnant. The most common pregnancy symptom is a missed period, but there are some other signs you should watch for.

Some early signs of pregnancy include:


When you’re pregnant, hormonal changes can cause bloating. Some say it’s similar to how you feel before starting your period.


The hormonal changes of pregnancy can make you feel exhausted and tired, even after getting a good night’s sleep.

Food cravings or aversions

During pregnancy, it’s not uncommon for women to be more sensitive to odors, such as food. Hormonal changes can also impact appetite or how you taste the food.

Frequent urination

When you’re pregnant, your kidneys begin to process more fluid that’s being produced by your body. This can cause your increased need to urinate.

Mood Swings

If you’re experiencing more dramatic emotions than usual, this could be due to the increased hormones in your body during pregnancy.

Nausea or vomiting

This is also referred to as morning sickness, but it can happen at any time of the day. Typically, this symptom begins around one month into your pregnancy.

Tender or swollen breasts

This can be one of the earliest signs of pregnancy, as the hormonal changes can make your breasts feel sore, fuller, and sensitive.
