Think you might be pregnant? Congratulations may be in order if you have any of the following 12 pregnancy symptoms.
The more pregnancy symptoms you experience, the more likelihood you’re pregnant. So let’s go over some of the most well-known pregnancy symptoms.
An increase in cervical mucus happens when your uterus thickens. This can happen almost immediately.
Implantation bleeding – For women who are in tune with their body, or they’re trying to conceive, this could be one of the first symptoms you may ever see.

Missed period – This is the most common sign for women everywhere.
Your breast may feel sore, tingly or tender and this can happen as early as 1 to 2 weeks after ovulation.
This may happen as early as 1 week after ovulation and it’s usually as result of an increase hormone called progesterone that results in you feeling exhausted.
Morning sickness can happen at anytime. Day or night, once a day or multiple times a day.
Along with morning sickness comes food cravings and aversions. You may find certain smells turn your stomach upside down and into knots while other times you’re craving a specific candy bar at 2am bugging your husband to go to a gas station. Not that I have ever done such a thing.
You may experience anywhere from dull to chronic back ache as well as mild to moderate head aches all throughout your pregnancy. However a promise – it’s so worth it in the long run.
At about 6-8 weeks after conception, you may find yourself making more and more chirps to the bathroom day and night.
Now this is the one that you find husbands talking the most about. Unfortunately, there’s an increase in our hormones almost like a flood if you will, that can leave us feeling a little bit all over the place and sometimes it’s hard to know what to do with all these emotions.
There’s an increase in the hormone progesterone and it causes food to pass more slowly through our intestines which can result in constipation.
Now this is a symptom that the majority of us don’t expect but standing for long periods, standing up too quick, going up the stairs can make you feel a little woozy and lightheaded and that’s because of your uterus. As it swells, it compresses the arteries in your legs, dropping your blood pressure, causing you to feel a little woozy.
You may experience all the symptoms or you may experience some of the symptoms but don’t rely on just the pregnancy symptoms. Always go follow though with taking home pregnancy tests. Until next time ladies! See you later. Bye!
