Have you felt off lately and can’t quite pinpoint what it is? Early pregnancy symptoms can be subtle, and some women experience multiple symptoms at a time.
If you are experiencing a missed period or nausea, these are just a couple of the early symptoms that may point to pregnancy. We can help you clarify whether you’re pregnant and your next steps.
Early Pregnancy Symptoms
Here are some of the most common types of pregnancy symptoms, according to the Mayo Clinic. Always follow up with an ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy details and see if there is a viable heartbeat present.
A Missed period
One of the first signs of pregnancy is a missed period. While missing your monthly cycle can point to pregnancy, if your cycles aren’t regular, this symptom can be misleading.
Are you tired all the time? Pregnancy causes many hormonal changes in the body, and blood volume increases by 30-50%. The placenta is developed while all the vital organs are created from scratch. It’s a lot going on, and this can cause great fatigue.
Nausea & Vomiting
Are you nauseous, vomiting, or both? The levels of hCG increase dramatically as pregnancy progresses. These pregnancy hormones often cause nausea and morning sickness.
Do you need to pee more than usual lately? As the uterus expands in pregnancy, extra pressure can be put on the bladder, causing women to use the restroom more than normal.
