Do you think you might be pregnant? In many cases, women notice signs and symptoms to indicate pregnancy before it’s time to take a pregnancy test.

Here are seven common signs and symptoms:

1. A Missed Period

One of the most indicative signs of pregnancy is missing your period. When you become pregnant, your body produces hormones that cause ovulation and your period to stop

Once you’ve missed your period, it’s time to find out if you’re pregnant. Visit Anderson House for a free lab-quality pregnancy test.

2. Nausea with or without Vomiting

No one is certain why pregnant women experience nausea and vomiting. However, the most likely suspect is an increase in hormones. 

Sometimes, nausea strikes in the morning or at random times. It can last a few weeks or months or not occur at all. 

3. Increased Urination

The amount of blood in the body increases during pregnancy. In turn, the kidneys process extra fluid—more fluid means more trips to the restroom.

4. Fatigue

Women can feel sleepy or tired during early pregnancy. While the exact cause isn’t known, experts suggest an increase in the hormone progesterone levels could be to blame. Because of this, you may feel you need more naps. 

5. Food Aversions and Cravings

Pregnant women sometimes crave certain foods. Other foods can make them feel sick. 

It is okay to indulge sometimes as long as you eat healthy most of the time. Cutting some foods out of your diet is also okay if they make you sick. 

6. Tender, Swollen Breasts

The increase in hormones in pregnancy causes breasts to feel sore and tender to the touch. This symptom will likely decrease as the pregnancy advances. 

7. Moodiness

Once again, hormones are the culprit. They can cause emotions to swing back and forth or cause you to feel unusually emotional or weepy. 

Other pregnancy symptoms include bloating, light spotting, cramping, constipation, and nasal congestion.
