Do you think you’re possibly pregnant? Maybe your periods are irregular, so it’s hard to know. In this blog, we share the 7 top pregnancy symptoms to look out for, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Always go about pregnancy testing to be sure and follow up with an ultrasound to determine how far along you are and more. We can help with both of these steps.
1. A missed period
If your period is later than normal, you could be pregnant. If you normally have irregular periods, try to wait it out and see if you continue not to have a period. Either way, a pregnancy test will help you know for sure.
2. Tender, swollen breasts
You could be pregnant if your breasts feel extra tender or swollen. This symptom happens due to hormonal changes and will most likely decrease the longer you are pregnant.
3. Nausea with or without vomiting
Are you experiencing unusual nausea with or without vomiting? This could point to pregnancy, as this is a very common early pregnancy symptom due to hormonal changes. While some may experience this symptom, some women don’t at all.
4. Increased urination
You may be running to the bathroom more frequently than normal. 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.
Are you extremely tired and drained? Fatigue is another pregnancy symptom, as the progesterone hormone levels rise quickly during pregnancy.
Like around that time of the month, moodiness is normal when pregnant. The amount of hormonal changes can cause your emotions to go up and down. Mood swings are very normal.
You may wonder if you are bloated or pregnant. Sometimes bloating happens as hormonal changes are happening in your body. Progesterone also slows digestion, which can trap the gas in the intestines that may cause abdominal bloating.
