How soon can you tell if you are pregnant? Have you been feeling a little crampy lately? More tired than usual? Do you just have a feeling that there may be a baby on board? Is your period just plain MIA? My OBGyne wants to put your mind at ease with 5 early signs of pregnancy to lookout for.
5 Early Signs of Pregnancy: The Classic Cues
Are your breasts really bothering you? One of the early signs of pregnancy many women experience are breast changes. They can be felt as soreness, tenderness, fullness, heaviness or a tingling sensation.
Spotting and Cramping
Some light spotting and cramping can be one of the first signs of pregnancy. You may feel crampy as you normally would when you are about to get your period, but then it doesn’t happen. This light spotting, known as implantation bleeding, tends to be lighter in color than a normal period and doesn’t last quite as long. The cramps you may feel are similar to menstrual cramps.
Feeling Very Tired
Is all you can think about while working is how you want to take a nap? Your body may be telling you that you’re pregnant if you’re feeling fatigued and your energy is completely wiped out.
You Feel Nauseous
Feeling some morning sickness or vomiting? Some women may experience nausea and a feeling similar to motion sickness as an early sign of pregnancy.
You Crave Certain Foods or Avoid Them
If you’re pregnant, you may find yourself running in the other direction when it comes to certain foods that never bothered you before. Or you may begin craving something specific. Your food aversions or cravings can all be chalked up to hormonal changes that occur during the first trimester of pregnancy.
If you are pregnant, you could have one of these symptoms or all. Talk with your obgyn about them to make absolutely sure. You don’t want to be left guessing any longer!
