This is usually the first symptom which suggests you might be pregnant. This is not a sure sign that you are pregnant, there can be other causes of a missed period. Some of these are:
This is a feeling of nausea and, sometimes, vomiting, especially in the mornings due to pregnancy. It occurs in approx. 50% of all pregnancies and is most marked at 2-12 weeks of pregnancy. It is usually most severe in the mornings, but may occur at any time and maybe precipitated by cooking odors and pungent smells.
There will be certain changes in your breasts due to the different hormones in the body. Your breasts will become slightly bigger and might be sore and tender. You might also notice some prominent veins on your breasts. The area around your nipples (areola) will also become darker.
As the uterus grows it presses on your urinary bladder, and decreases the capacity of the bladder. You then feel the urge to urinate frequently. This feeling passes soon, when the uterus grows bigger and goes into your abdomen.
Your body makes many different hormones when you are pregnant. You might get a feeling of bloating because of these hormones.
In early pregnancy, many women get cravings for certain kinds of foods.
This is a feeling of movement of the baby in your tummy. It usually occurs around 20 weeks of pregnancy, but might be appreciated earlier in women who have borne children earlier.
