Pregnancy symptoms can feel different for each woman. While some women can experience severe nausea, other women can go through pregnancy with little to no apparent symptoms.

If you’re reading this, you’re likely waiting to find out whether or not you’re pregnant. You may have noticed some signs and symptoms you aren’t used to experiencing.

Keep reading to learn whether they could be related to a potential pregnancy. Here are seven common pregnancy signs and symptoms:

1. A Missed Period

When a woman becomes pregnant, her body produces hormones to stop ovulation and the shedding of her uterine lining—this chain of events results in a missed period.

A missed period is often a sign to take a pregnancy test, and you can receive no-charge pregnancy testing at Colorado Springs Pregnancy Center.

2. Nausea with or without Vomiting

Also known as “morning sickness,” women can feel nauseous at any time of day or night. It typically starts within one to two months of pregnancy, but some women can feel it even earlier, and some not at all. Pregnancy hormones likely play a role in nausea.

3. Tender, Swollen Breasts

With pregnancy’s hormonal changes can come tender, swollen breasts.

Some women may have sensitive or sore breasts and may even notice nipple changes. Nipples can become larger and darker during pregnancy.

4. Fatigue

Women can feel tired, fatigued, or sleepy during pregnancy as their bodies undergo many changes. No one knows the exact cause of fatigue, but the rapid rise in the hormone progesterone could contribute to it.

5. Increased Urination

Pregnant women can find themselves running to the restroom more or waking up in the middle of the night to relieve themselves. During pregnancy, blood volume increases, causing the kidneys to process more fluid, which ends up in the bladder.

6. Moodiness

With all the hormonal changes, women can feel unusually weepy or emotional and experience mood swings.

7. Bloating

Hormonal changes can also cause feelings of bloating, similar to what a woman might feel during the beginning of a monthly menstrual period.

Other Early Signs and Symptoms

There are more than seven common pregnancy symptoms; women can also experience light spotting (implantation bleeding), cramping, constipation, and food aversions.

Could You Be Pregnant?

If you are sexually active and haven’t had your period yet, there’s a chance you could be pregnant, whether you show signs or symptoms or not.

It’s best to take a pregnancy test instead of relying on symptoms alone. You can receive pregnancy testing at no cost to you at Colorado Springs Pregnancy Center.
