The 9 Earliest (And Less Known) Symptoms That Show You Are Pregnant

Honestly the absence of a period is the most obvious sign that your are pregnant. Or maybe the early morning sickness is the most common symptom predicting a possible pregnancy… However you might not have the morning sickness and  definitely not skip a period and still be pregnant.

Now keep reading and discover the signs that indicate a wonderful little human is growing in you, without necessarily screaming mummy….

1. Increased gas

For some women (not all), this symptom is noticed in the first days of pregnancy.  Sometimes it will last till the end of that pregnancy.

2. Tenderness or pain in the breasts

The confusing thing about this symptom is that it can also occur just before your period comes, but be on the safe side and do a pregnancy test once the soreness lasts for more than 72hours.

3. Heartburn

Acid reflux is common during pregnancy. If certain foods that were fine before suddenly cause acid, you could be pregnant.

4. Feeling full everytime asides the acid in your tummy could be a pointer. If you aren’t aware that this is an early symptom of a pregnancy, you’ll likely miss it and not notice your pregnancy until you miss a period.

5. Purging

Especially early in the morning or once you wake up. This for all the reasons in the world, I don’t know hwy it happens, but it’s an early sign. You might purge for days, but take note.

6. Frequent urination

Usually people will say this happens in your 2nd trimester, but you must know that your bladder starts to become weak once you take in. A little human might just be growing in you if this happens to you.

7. Noticeable change in your body temperature

Whether you get hotter or colder, you will notice that what used to be comfortable now is not. You either need more air or for the AC to be reduced.

8. Liquid Retention

If your wedding ring gets stuck on your finger and your pants get tighter, it may be a symptom of pregnancy. But, similar to the soreness in your breasts, this symptom is also common a few days before your period comes. If you are anxious to conceive, this can cause false expectations (and disappointment)

9. Tiredness/Fatigue

Lack of energy and sometimes insomnia are one of the earliest symptoms that your body is using the energy you have for something different – yes you guessed right (creating a life)
