Initial Pregnancy Symptoms

In this post I wanted to outline 10 symptoms of pregnancy, none of which involve missing a period.

Why bleeding before period is a question expectant mothers often ask, but there are many other ways that can provide an incline into whether your pregnant or not.


1. Tenderness of the Breast

Pregnancy induced hormonal changes cause the breasts to become more sensitive.

2. Nausea and Vomiting

The feeling of what many people call ‘morning sickness’ can last all day.

3. Fatigued Feeling


Fatigue in early pregnancy is quite common. This is most likely caused by the increased metabolic requirements of the body.

4. Change in Appetite

The cravings for odd combination of foods or non-food items

5 .Changes in Body Temperature

If the egg meets the sperm and gets fertilized, the increase of the body temperature continues being maintained.

6. Frequent Urination

The major reason for this symptom is the increased blood volume. Due to that, the frequent urination appears.

7. Change in sense of taste

Enlarging uterus compresses major vessels in the legs causing a reduction in the blood pressure this cause dizziness.
