10 Signs That You Might Be Pregnant

1. A missed period
Consider trying a pregnancy test if your usually regular period is late.  This is the surest sign of pregnancy in a woman of childbearing age who usually has regular periods

2. Morning sickness
As early as a couple of days after conception you may begin feeling queasy.  However, mostly morning sickness (nausea and even vomiting in some cases) only hits you a few weeks after conception

3. Tender, swollen breasts

When you are pregnant, your breasts will become increasingly tender to the touch, similar to the way you feel before your period, but only more so.  Once your body grows accustomed to the hormone surge, the pain will subside a bit

4. Fatigue
Fatigue and exhaustion is common in pregnancy.  High levels of the hormone progesterone can make a day at the office feel as if you have run a marathon

5. Frequent urination
Once the embryo implants it begins to produce the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin, which stimulates the bladder

6. Food cravings
In food cravings are accompanied by any other symptoms on this list, start counting the days from your last period

7. Darkening of your areolas
Conception might be indicated by the skin around your nipples getting darker in colour.  It may, however, also indicate a hormonal imbalance unrelated to pregnancy

8. Implantation bleeding or cramping
About 8 days after ovulation, you may experience a slight staining of a pinkish or brownish colour, also called implantation spotting, as well as some cramping

9. Altered sense of taste and smell
You might notice your sense of taste and smell change.  Suddenly you may no be able to stand the smell of cooking meat and you can’t bring yourself to eat food that you usually loved

10. Home pregnancy test
A blue or pink line in the test window…however faint, may confirm what you’ve expected when the test is performed at least on the first day of a missed period.  Congratulations!  Make an appointment with your doctor or gynecologist and read more on our site on what pregnancy entails
