9 Pregnancy Symptoms You Should Know

This sign of pregnancy are classified from the most important that will confirm that you are pregnant, to the less important sign.

1. Your basal body temperature stays high

If you have been watching your body temperature carefully and you see that your temperature
has stayed elevated for 16 days or more, you are probably pregnant.

2. A missed period

This is the most common symptom, if your period doesn't arrive on time there is a chance that you are pregnant, but if you are not regular and don't keep track of your cycle you will not take that seriously, but you can know the early pregnancy symptoms like nausea and breast tenderness that will signal pregnancy before you realize you didn't get your period.

3. Frequent urination

during pregnancy the amount of blood and other fluids in your body increases, which leads to extra fluid being processed by your kidneys and ending up in your bladder.
This symptom starts in the first trimester and will continue as your pregnancy progresses.

4. Abdominal bloating

A bloated feeling that is caused by hormonal changes in your early pregnancy may let you
feel snugger than usual at the waistline, even early or when your uterus is still quite small.

5. Increased sensitivity to odors

You may find that certain food or aromas are suddenly completely repulsive to you.

6. Nausea or vomiting

This can be a problem for some women about a month after conception, but some women
do start to feel it a bit earlier.

7. Implantation bleeding

You may experience a small amount of vaginal bleeding around 11 or 12 days after conception
and this is caused by the fertilized egg burrowing into the blood-rich lining of your uterus.

8. Fatigue

This is one of the early pregnancy symptoms; I think it's the hormonal change that contributes to the feeling of sleepiness

9. Tender, swollen breasts

An other early signs of pregnancy are sensitive, sore breasts like before your period, this will diminish after the first trimester.

The Solution: a home pregnancy test

This is not the most effective method to detect that you are pregnant until at least 12 to 15 days after the fertilization, so, if you need a more accurate way to detect an early pregnancy symptoms you can use the clinical blood test which can confirm the fertilization early as 6 to 8 days.
