Early Signs of Pregnancy

Pregnancy signs are unique to each woman. At the same time, however, there are a set of common early signs of pregnancy that women can use to determine if they might be pregnant.

Should you have any of the following early pregnancy signs, consider taking a home pregnancy test or seeing your physician to determine if you are pregnant.

Common Early Pregnancy Signs

Here are some of the most common early pregnancy signs that a woman will experience after becoming pregnant.

Bleeding from implantation - This is one of the early signs of pregnancy and it can occur within the first 6 to 10 days after conception. Implantation happens when an egg is fertilized. It refers to the egg embedding itself in the endometrium or  lining of the uterus. Once implanted, the egg, destined to become the embryo, will have access to the blood supply of the mother where it will draw nourishment from in the coming weeks and months. The implantation process may lead to bleeding and spotting.

Missing your regular menstruation period - One of the most significant and most obvious pregnancy signs is a missed menstrual cycle. Although this is an early sign or pregnancy it's not foolproof as not all women have regular menstrual periods. However, if you have a regular menstrual cycle and suddenly miss your period - you may want to take a pregnancy test. Conversely, having your period does not automatically mean that you are not pregnant as many pregnant women still have periods, although they occur with less bleeding. It's also worth mentioning that other factors such as bulimia can cause missed menstrual cycles.

Tender Breasts - If you notice that your breasts have become tender or swollen or that they are "tingling", this may also be a very early sign of pregnancy. They may be so sore and sensitive that it hurts to even touch them. Like implantation bleeding, this can occur within the first ten days after conception. The tenderness and the swelling of the breasts occur as the body's hormones prepares the breasts for milk production and breastfeeding.

Constipation - A great number of pregnant women, almost 50%, will experience constipation during the later part of their pregnancy due to pressure exerted on the rectum by the growing fetus. It can also be one of the first signs of pregnancy, however. Conception causes an increase of progesterone in the body which slows the movement of food through the digestive tract. This is to give the body more time to extract nutrients from the foods. In some women, this helps to set the stage for constipation problems.

Fatigue - Are you usually full of energy but lately feel yourself becoming more tired than usual? Are you finding it harder to just get out of bed? Making babies requires a ton of energy from the body's resources. Within a week's time of conception, if you're only taking in your usual amounts of food, but still performing your normal everyday activities, you may begin to feel run down or fatigued.

Morning Sickness - At one time or another over the course of their pregnancy, almost every woman will experience a bout of morning sickness. A small body kicking around near your belly will have that effect. This will not, however, be one of the early signs of pregnancy for most women although it will be for some.

Dizziness - One of the earliest signs of pregnancy is dizziness caused by not eating enough food or not drinking enough water. From the very beginning, as the fetus begins to grow, it takes blood sugar from your body as to use as fuel to grow. If you aren't eating enough, this can lead to your feeling faint because of low blood sugar.

Food cravings - One of the most common early pregnancy signs that a newly pregnant woman will feel. Mostly triggered by hormonal changes, you'll find that you have intense cravings for certain foods - French fries, pizza, ice cream, and so on - usually fattening stuff.

Changing Tastebuds - Another early symptom of pregnancy is that you suddenly find your tastebuds changing. Foods that you usually like, you don't have a taste for now. Foods you avoided in the past, now you suddenly have a craving for them.

Fewer Headaches - Are you prone to headaches but find that they have suddenly disappeared or lessened in intensity? Estrogen is central to a successful pregnancy. One of it's roles is to regulate the production of progesterone over the full term. Estrogen and progesterone also interact with "headache causing" chemicals in the brain. Pregnancy causes higher levels of estrogen to be in the blood stream which causes higher levels of serotonin in the brain, which helps to regulate and eliminate the pain messages caused by the normal headache. Hence, an early sign of pregnancy may mean less headaches.

More Headaches - Conversely, another early pregnancy sign if more frequent headaches. Headaches my be triggered by hormonal changes taking place in the body.

Frequent Urination - The frequent urge to urinate is not one of the first signs of pregnancy but it does typically begin to occur about a month and a half after conception. As your uterus expands it exerts pressure on your bladder creating the sensation that you need to urinate.

Aroma Hypersensitivity - When a woman is in the early stages of pregnancy, she may notice that she is becoming hypersensitive to aromas - foods and others. They may be so sensitive that it causes them to throw up or become nauseated when a smell doesn't quite agree with them.

Mood Swings - As more and more of the new hormones begin to course through your body it's not that unusual that you would begin to experience mood swings, And many women do. You may find yourself crying for no reason or feel that you have all the symptoms of PMS.

Bloating - Bloating can be an early sign of pregnancy. Hormones are again the problem. As the increased progesterone envelopes your body it slows down your digestive processes and leads to gas and bloating. Of course, bloating could also mean nothing more than that your period has arrived.
