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.

Cervical Mucus

More cervical mucus

An increase in cervical mucus happens when your uterus thickens. This can happen almost immediately.

Implantation bleeding

Implantation BleedingImplantation 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. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here This can take place anywhere between 6 to 12 days past ovulation and usually you will experience a little spotting and then color of tan to light pink.

Missed Period

Missed period

Missed period – This is the most common sign for women everywhere.

Breast changes

Your breast may feel sore, tingly or tender and this can happen as early as 1 to 2 weeks after ovulation.

Fatigue and tiredness

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

Morning sickness can happen at anytime. Day or night, once a day or multiple times a day.

Food cravings and aversions

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.

Headaches and back ache

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.

Frequent urination

At about 6-8 weeks after conception, you may find yourself making more and more chirps to the bathroom day and night.

Mood swings

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.

Constipation

There’s an increase in the hormone progesterone and it causes food to pass more slowly through our intestines which can result in constipation.

Dizziness

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!

    Hi I have PCOS, I’m on Clomid and I used ovulation test and got a positive about a week ago. Now I’m on day 22 and been having bad cramps and headaches. I also been just getting so tired to the point i’ll just fall asleep when sitting here in mid day. Is this just side affects from the pills?

    Heya, I’m anxious to know what’s going on with my body, any suggestions or advice would be appreciated!
    My last normal cycle finished on the 4th of July, my partner and I had intercourse frequently and I’m not using any birth control. I noticed 2 weeks ago now (2 weeks after my cycle finished) there was light red spotting, something I have never experienced as I’ve always had heatlthy cycles. The spotting was light and none painful and only lasted the day.
    1 week ago I had clear discharge (which is odd because there was a lot, to the point where I felt I was wetting myself) theres no irritation or odours whatsoever. I did a home pregnancy test and it was negative, I’m now late for my period and I’ve experienced mood swings, bloating, mild cramping, no blood/period, food cravings (as well as can’t stand strong smells), my appetite has increased, nausea all day everyday, headaches and lower back pains, dizziness, more sexually aroused, emotional and always tired (can sleep in which is usually very hard for me).
    I seen my doctor today and the urine was negative and she suggested blood test because its so early, she was smiling and seemed confident, but I would like more opinions as I would love to know if im blessed enough to conceive or if my body isn’t working right.. PLEASE HELP? :)

    Please help. I’m not on BC and usually have regular menstrual cycles (30 days or so and lasting 3-5 days). For the first time EVERY (I’m 30 years old), I had 1 day of bleeding regularly and very very faint to no blood after that! It just stopped entirely after two days. I did have unprotected sex with my husband about 12 days prior to the day of bleeding. I’m experiencing continuous light headedness but have taken 3 tests and they’re all negative! PLEASE HELP.

    I thought I may be pregnant (for the first time) because I started to have really sore nipples about 7 days after my husband and I last had sex (during my ovulation) and leave been more fatigued and sensitive to smell; which are symptoms I never had before. This morning I woke up and found heavy bleeding and a little cramping in my lower abdomen. I’m about 6 days before my next period should begin and the bleeding has continued throughout the day. My periods are never really regular (usually more than once a month, but never less than one a month) and I’ve never taken any birth control.

    I’ve been debating over the past two days whether I should buy a pregnancy test, but after the bleeding and research I did today I wonder if I had a miscarriage or chemical pregnancy or was even pregnant at all? My other symptoms are still present and today I even became nauseated and couldn’t eat the breakfast I made because of the smell.

    Also, would my doctor be able to tell if I was pregnant or had a miscarriage this early on and/or after the fact?

    So I quit the Depo shot in May, however I started 0.8 mg Generess Fe birth control pill, I quit taking that in July because me and my husband were trying to conceive. My period was due, but wind up coming 13 days late, my husband and I tried conceiving up until last week for about a month. I’m currently having nausea, I’ve vomited once, my areoles have slightly darkened, i get dizzy really easy when I stand up, and I’m having lower and higher back aches. Could I be pregnant?

    I ended up missing my period for 3 months and I’m still a virgin. Is there anything wrong with that? Like I know that I’m not pregnant but the thought always runs through my mind. And I’m not really sure if this is the right place to go to for advice, but my parents just think it’s normal and I don’t think it is.

    I have been TTC and my last cycle started on 22 of last month. My next cycle isn’t due until the 20th. Just recently I started checking my CM and after ovulation it was very creamy, my nipples were tender, and now today the CM is a little thicker. I have been a little constipated also. Could I be pregnant or is it too early to tell?

    I had my period on sept 23rd. My husband and I had sex all through my fertile days with ovulation being oct 7th except the day after ovulation which was the 8th. On the evening of Oct 11th I began experiencing a terrible cramping in my lower abdomen. The next day the 9th i discovered my nipples had turned black which I have never seen and they are extremely sensitive. In fact hubby touched it and I screamed out loud which has never happened before. Since the 9th my body feels funny and different and I have a metallic taste in my mouth with a slight backache on and off and very tired. My next period is due October 21st. Could I be pregnant

    My LMP was 09/01/2014 – 09/07/2014 I missed my period this month (October) I still have not received it. The week before my period was due I was feeling real dizzy and light headed that whole week. I took a pregnancy test but it came back negative the same day I had seen some spotting that looked like mucus w/light pink blood in it, I wiped again and there was no blood. Tt whole week I also had heartburn. I went to the doctor and the dr gave me a urine test on the 22nd of this month but it came back negative she said if it was positive I would have been 6wks 1 day. I have also been feeling really tired lately. What is your opinion on this? What do you think I should do?
