Pregnancy Signs

Know what the common signs of pregnancy are.

Missed Period

A missed menstrual period is usually the first sign of pregnancy for many women. Sometimes a small amount of implantation bleeding occurs and can be mistaken as a period and pregnancy is not suspected or confirmed until a second period is missed.
It is unusual for pregnant women to continue menstrual periods though it has been known to happen. For mothers who already have given birth, leaking breast milk may signal subsequent conception.

Frequent Urination

As the levels of progesterone increase, your bladder muscles relax.

Nausia

Can often begin about the same time as a missed period. Although it’s known as morning sickness, the sensation can occur at any time of day, all day, or night.

Increase in Blood Supply

This will occur throughout your body. You may notice tiny blood vessels in your face or a reddening of your palms. You may also have less sensitivity to hot and cold.

Sinus Congestion

The mucus membranes in your nose may swell, causing difficult breathing and snoring.

Tender & Swollen Breasts

Breasts become fuller, more tender and may tingle or throb.

Fatigue

It is common to feel tired during the day with constant yawning. You may also have trouble motivating yourself.

Bloating

As the levels of progesterone rise softening muscles in your womb and intestine, bloating and constipation are likely.

Pelvic Sensations

Some women experience sensations in the pelvic area.

Darkening of Areola

A darkening of the areola, the area around the nipple, is common. Women who have been pregnant before may notice a drop or two of milk at the nipple.

Metallic Taste

A metallic taste in the mouth is caused by hormonal changes.

Emotions

You may feel emotional or tearful for reasons that seem unexplained.

Instincts

Many women say that they know instinctively when they have conceived
