Tender or swollen breasts are the result of elevated hormone levels. If your breasts are also tender and a bit swollen before your period, it may be tough to determine if it is caused by pregnancy. Darkening of the areolas is also experienced by some women during pregnancy.
Although it is frequently labeled “morning sickness”, nausea can occur anytime of the day or night during pregnancy. This symptom usually occurs 2-8 weeks after conception.
Elevated levels of progesterone are responsible for the exhaustion experienced during pregnancy. It may occur as early as 1 week after conception.
More frequent urination is a good sign of pregnancy. However, this does not occur until several weeks into pregnancy.
Elevated Basal Body Temperature (BBT)
This is a very reliable symptom for women who use the BBT method to track ovulation. BBT rises with ovulation and falls when menstruation begins. A good sign of pregnancy is when your BBT stays elevated.
Frequent, mild headaches may be the result of changing hormone levels.
During early pregnancy some women experience cramping similar to menstrual cramps.
The above signs and symptoms are very common during pregnancy. However, several other signs and symptoms that are not as common may also occur. These include food aversions or cravings, constipation, mood swings, backaches, feeling faint, bloating, sensitivity to odors, yeast infections, and increased “creamy” cervical mucus.
