7 Top Pregnancy Symptoms
Here are the top pregnancy symptoms to look out for if you think you could be pregnant, according to the Mayo Clinic:
1. A missed period
Did you miss your period? A missed period could be a clear sign you’re pregnant. If you have irregular periods, wait it out and see if you continue not to have a period. Confirm with a pregnancy test.
2. Increased urination
The amount of blood in your body increases during pregnancy, causing your kidneys to process extra fluid, some of which ends up in your bladder. This may be why you feel like you’re in the bathroom a lot more right now.
3. Nausea with or without vomiting
Nausea and vomiting could point to pregnancy. It’s very common in the early days of pregnancy due to hormonal changes.
4. Tender, swollen breasts
Hormonal changes can also cause your breasts to swell or even become extra tender (like on your period).
Always tired? Fatigue is a common pregnancy symptom due to the progesterone hormone levels rising quickly during early pregnancy.
Mood swings and emotional rollercoasters are typical for pregnancy, as your hormones are up and down.
Bloating occurs as hormonal changes are happening in your body. Progesterone slows digestion, which can trap the gas in the intestines that may cause abdominal bloating.
Still Unsure if You’re Pregnant?
It can be difficult to know if you’re really pregnant. Learning about the symptoms can be helpful, but it won’t confirm a pregnancy. You will need to take other steps to be sure that you are pregnant, including:
- Getting lab-quality pregnancy testing
- Receive a limited ultrasound
Our center offers free, urine lab-quality pregnancy testing so you can begin confirmation. If you receive positive pregnancy testing at our center, we also offer a limited ultrasound so you can determine your pregnancy options and be sure of your pregnancy details.
