You might wonder if there are early signs of pregnancy that can tell you if you are pregnant, even before taking a pregnancy test? But Yes, there are several early signs of pregnancy. A pregnancy test kit confirms whether you are pregnant by detecting your human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), which is a hormone produced during pregnancy in the urine. Most pregnancy kits can do this from the fourth or the fifth week of pregnancy, which means you can get a BFP (big fat positive) within a week of missing your period. But for some women, physical indicators such as a “gut feel” or others are the early signs of pregnancy — some are listed below – Then they might get conceived.
You are here then I think you might have felt that you’re pregnant. So, let’s look at these early signs of pregnancy that most women feel.
Early Signs of Pregnancy
Periods happen like clockwork every 28 days but have yet to appear even a week after the expected date. , you could be pregnant if there is barring any other ovarian concerns
You might think the period has started, then it ends which is known as “implantation bleeding”. This arises when the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterus. You might also feel mild cramping.
Feeling so Tired
Pregnancy fatigue is a thing. You may experience it even before you realize that you are pregnant. You may wonder if you are ill, as you have never, ever felt this level of exhaustion before. Chances are, it’s just pregnancy hormones making their presence felt. This sense of constant tiredness eases off during the second trimester but usually returns in the third.
Your Breasts are Sore
Breastfeeding is still a long way away, but your breasts have already started to feel full, heavy, even a little sore. They may also have started to swell. Your nipples may feel tender to the touch. It’s like PMS, but more.
You feel Queasy
It’s not full-on the morning (and noon, and night) sickness yet, but your sense of taste has changed, and you feel a constant sense of nausea. This is probably caused by pregnancy hormones as well.
You keep wanting to Pee
Find yourself running to the loo more often? This could be a sign. During pregnancy, your body pumps more blood than usual, causing your kidneys to process more fluid, increasing the fluid in your bladder and causing you to look for the toilet more regularly.
You’re Bloated. And Constipated
Bloating and constipation could also be early signs of pregnancy. Similar to how it is before you have your period, these are caused by hormone changes.
True story: a friend got up from bed one morning and promptly fell. Her blood pressure had dropped because of pregnancy hormones, so she got dizzy and fell when she stood up. At that time, she had no idea that she was pregnant. If you suspect that you may be expecting, move slowly when getting up from a lying or a seating position.
Strong sense of smell
While this is not medically proven, many expectant mothers report a heightened sense of smell when pregnant. Consequently, they also have an aversion to certain foods and drinks. It’s been speculated that this is nature’s way of telling pregnant mothers to avoid ingesting food which could harm the fetus.
Whether you’ve been trying to conceive for a month, a year, or more, you are probably hopeful and excited at the thought that you could be pregnant. If you are experiencing any of these early signs of pregnancy, there is a chance that you do have a bun in the oven. Fingers crossed, and all the best!
