Signs of Pregnancy

How do I know if I’m pregnant?

The signs of pregnancy can vary from woman to woman. Usually the clearest sign is a missed period.  But some women may still bleed while pregnant. The following are the most common first signs of pregnancy:

  • Feeling very tired
  • Sore and swollen breasts
  • Nausea or vomiting (also called morning sickness)
  • Frequent urination
  • Certain food cravings or aversions
  • Bloating of the abdomen
  • Mood swings
  • Darkening of the skin around the nipples

These early signs may not always point to pregnancy. In fact, they may signal another health issue. That is why a pregnancy test can give more accurate results. We suggest that you see a health care provider to determine if you are pregnant.
