You might be freaked out over the fact your period isn't here on time, or maybe you're waiting anxiously for results because you and your husband have been trying for a long time.
Here Are Some Signs...
Regardless of whether you're hoping to be pregnant, or praying that you aren't, you're most likely looking for early pregnancy signs. Here are seven telltale signs you should keep your eyes out for.
1. You're spotting when you shouldn't be.
One of the first signs you might notice is cramping and either light bleeding or spotting. This is called "implantation bleeding," and occurs when the embryo implants into a woman's uterus. When this happens, little blood vessels in the area where it attaches can be disrupted, and can cause a woman's discharge to change to pink, red, or brown discharge. Not every woman will undergo this symptom of pregnancy.
2. Your boobs are really sore.
When you're pregnant, your breasts start growing pretty quickly, which means they are undergoing a lot of changes and as a result, might be feeling pretty painful and swollen. You can thank estrogen and progesterone for your boobies being sore.
3. You've been moody AF.
If you find yourself crying a lot over nothing, or over something really stupid, you're not going crazy. You're most likely just pregnant. Thanks to, once again, our hormones, we might be feeling extra emotional. Stress or fatigue from the pregnancy might also be making you more prone to mood swings.
4. You're super tired all the time.
When you're pregnant, chances are you'll go through a period of extreme fatigue. Your body is undergoing a lot of changes and is building a life support system for your little baby. This can take a toll on your energy levels, and if you've had the extra emotional exhaustion added in on top of everything else, it's no wonder you feel like sleeping for days.
5. You feel nauseous and want to throw up at times.
Nausea during pregnancy is normal, and while some women don't get morning sickness ever, some women do, and typically about one or two months after conception. However, some women get nausea and morning sickness as early as two weeks into their pregnancy. About 70 percent of women will experience nausea at some point and could be the fault of either a spike in estrogen or increased stress and fatigue.
6. You notice a whole lot more discharge.
When you first become pregnant, one of the earliest signs aside from implantation bleeding is changes in your discharge. You might notice thick white or milky white discharge when you first become pregnant, and you'll notice a whole lot of it in your panties. It's called leucorrhea and typically lasts through the first two trimesters.
7. You're dealing with changes in appetite.
If you notice food cravings or food aversions, this could be an early pregnancy sign. These cravings and aversions happen because of hormones, but also cravings can signal vitamins that you might be lacking. For example, if you're craving tuna, you might be low in omega-3 fatty acids. Eat what you crave (within reason).
