Whether you’re trying to get pregnant or it’s the last thing on your mind, it can sometimes be difficult to tell if you actually are. There are many symptoms associated with pregnancy, especially in the early stages, and many of them can be caused by a wide range of health conditions. The odds of being pregnant increase with the more of these symptoms you’re experiencing at once.
The following are a few of the early signs of pregnancy you should be on the lookout for.
Cramps can be a major indication that you are pregnant, but they are also a common symptom of having your period? How can you tell the difference? Well, if you missed your period that should be one sign. On top of that if you’re still getting cramps, it could be caused by a fertilized egg implanting in the wall of your uterus. The cramps can feel almost identical to the type you get during your period.
Fatigue and Soreness
Unusual fatigue and soreness is also an early sign of pregnancy. While of course these are symptoms of a lot of things, coupled together and with a few other signs there is a good chance you may be pregnant. Hormone levels change in the body once you become pregnant, which could drastically alter your sleeping schedule. As for soreness, you may be feeling most of the pain in your breasts if you’re actually pregnant. That’s because pregnancy often leads to breasts growing bigger and tenderer.
Other Signs of Pregnancy
Other early signs include unusual cravings for food, frequent urination, and nausea. If you’re experiencing any or all of the symptoms for more than a few days, you may want to visit a health care professional or at least take a pregnancy test.
