Do You Think You Are Pregnant?
The most common early pregnancy symptom is a missed period. Not everyone notices this, however. The early symptoms of pregnancy can be easy to overlook, especially if you lead an active lifestyle or have missed periods before. Many women skip periods due to other factors, including dietary or lifestyle changes, stress, exercise or illness. However, there are other early pregnancy signs that can help you determine whether you should take a pregnancy test.
Understanding the early signs of pregnancy is important because each symptom may be related to something other than pregnancy. In order to find out if the symptoms you are experiencing are pregnancy related, it is important to get an accurate diagnosis with a pregnancy test and an ultrasound.
