3 Signs that Could Indicate Pregnancy


Determining if you are pregnant, especially in the early stages, can be more difficult that you might think. Many people have irregular menstrual cycles that make it hard to even notice if they are late for their period, which is the most common way to tell if you are pregnant. Even if you are late and you take a test, it can come out negative for up to a couple of weeks after the missed period. Here are some other indicators that may point you toward pregnancy.

Morning Sickness

Majority of women will experience some sort of nausea during their pregnancy, and of those women, many of them have it during the first trimester. Though they typically won't notice nausea until about 6 weeks along, there have been some women who claim that they felt sick even a day or 2 after conception. If you are feeling sick or have an unusual aversion to smells at any point during the day and have missed a period, you may want to take a test.

Increase in Urination

An indicator of pregnancy that may show up even earlier than morning sickness is an increase in urine production. In the first few weeks of pregnancy, your body processes blood more quickly through your kidneys, resulting in a more frequent urgency to empty your bladder. You may find yourself getting up several times in the middle of the night having to empty your bladder when you never had to do that before.

Hunger Pains

You may or may not have weird cravings throughout your pregnancy, but in most cases across the board, you will increase how much you eat. You may want to change the way that you eat. Instead of 3 large meals a day, you should stick to eating small meals and healthy snacks every few hours. Neglecting eating could lead to more nausea.
