Is there a doubt that you are pregnant?
Some of the early pregnancy symptoms may show up once you have missed a period or couple of weeks later. It is seen that 7 out of 10 women show these symptoms by the time they are six weeks long after missing the period. If you see any of these symptoms then take a pregnancy test to confirm it.
- Aversion to Food
It is common for newly pregnant woman to feel repelled by the aromas of certain food items like fried food, coffee etc. This must be due to the side effects of rapidly increasing amounts of estrogen in the body. Surprisingly some of the food you love the most may be the ones you are averse about.
- Big Mood Swings
Pregnancy is the time when you have big mood swings, mainly because of the flush of hormonal changes that affect neurotransmitters. Every woman has a different response to these changes. Some may feel sad, hopeless and depressed while others will feel overjoyed, hopeful and emotional both good and bad. Everyday there will be several phases where one mood takes over another and is quite natural.
- Bloated Abdomen

- Frequent Urination
Once you are pregnant another symptom that reveals it is the urge to urinate frequently. This symptom will become more severe as the pregnancy progresses.
- Constant Fatigue

- Tender Breasts
