Whether you’re trying to get pregnant and you want to know what to expect, or if you’re worried you might be pregnant and want to know how to spot it, we’ve put together a timeline of the early signs of pregnancy, to help you. The timings given here are just approximations and may vary from person to person due to individual differences. If you think you may be pregnant, a pregnancy test is the most reliable method to be sure.
For women who have a regular menstrual cycle, the first sign of pregnancy is usually a missed period or a period that is much lighter than usual. If you experience a missed period, health professionals recommend that you take a pregnancy test. A missed period is one of the most reliable indicators of pregnancy, other than a positive test result.
Tender breast can be similar to how your breasts may feel before a period. The breasts may be slightly larger, more sensitive and the nipples may be more prominent.
Women commonly report and increased sensitivity to taste and smell. You may also experience cravings for certain foods, changed which foods you like, and have a metallic taste in your mouth.
Morning sickness may begin about six weeks after your last period. Unlike what the name suggests, morning sickness can occur at any time of day, not just in the morning. Morning sickness can be a feeling of nausea and/or vomiting.
You may feel the need to urinate more often than normal during the day or night.
Tiredness and feelings of exhaustion are common during pregnancy. This feeling may have effects upon your emotions and morning sickness.
