Keep reading to learn some potential signs and symptoms of pregnancy. 

Is Your Period Late?

The most common symptom of pregnancy is the realization that you have not had your period. 

Every month, your body builds up the lining of the uterus to prepare for pregnancy. If a pregnancy does not occur, the lining of the uterus sheds, causing what is known as your period.
If your period does not occur, it is a sign that you might be pregnant. 

Have Your Hormones Gone Crazy?

With pregnancy comes an increase in hormones, which can cause all kinds of changes in your body. Some of these include: 

  • Breast Tenderness
  • Heartburn
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation

Do You Feel Like Your Mood Is Out of Control?

Do you cry a lot? Do you go from sad to happy and back to sad in no time at all? This could be a sign of pregnancy as well. The culprit, once again, is the increase in hormonal activity

Having Trouble Keeping Food Down?

About one to two months into your pregnancy, morning sickness may kick in. While this can be challenging, symptoms typically improve by the middle or end of the second trimester.

Even if you don’t feel like eating, the nausea is helped by keeping your stomach a little full. Crackers, dry toast, and other bland foods are good to keep on hand.

If the sickness gets really bad, call your doctor. There are some medications that can ease the symptoms. 

Have to Run to the Bathroom?

Do you need to urinate more often? Your body increases its fluid level during pregnancy, and your kidneys are working harder. The extra fluid your kidneys process will end up in your bladder.
