Some women will notice the signs within the first few weeks of their pregnancy in the first trimester, while others may experience it much later.
Not all women will have the exact same signs as you do as it can vary in terms of quality and severity. Furthermore, not all women will necessarily have those same signs during the next pregnancy. The main reason as to why many women do not realise that they are pregnant is because it is often rather similar to the symptoms that come before and during menstruation.
It must be noted that the following list is just a description of several common signs that occur during an early pregnancy and is not a definite confirmation that you are truly pregnant as there are other factors which may cause these signs as well. The only way to be 100% certain is by taking a pregnancy test.
Here are the 14 signs of an early pregnancy that you may experience:
As stated previously, the signs and symptoms are different for every woman and it is rather similar to those related to premenstrual syndrome (PMS), thus making it rather impossible to rely on these signs alone to determine whether you are truly pregnant. While a home pregnancy test can help in the process, there may be times where it produces a false-positive result. Therefore, the best method is to pay a visit to the doctor’s clinic for a urine or blood test.
