For a lot of women, a late period is scary because it is often one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. If you weren’t planning on being pregnant but think you might be, you’re probably feeling a little fearful. Check to see if you have any of these other symptoms too.
Early Pregnancy Symptoms
These are a few of the more common early pregnancy symptoms:
- Swollen, tender breasts
- Frequent need to urinate
- Nausea with or without vomiting
- Light spotting or cramping
- Food aversions
- A missed period
Every woman responds to pregnancy differently. Some women don’t have any symptoms while others experience them all. Some realize they’re pregnant immediately while other women don’t know for months. What’s the best way for you to find out if you’re pregnant? No-cost lab-quality pregnancy testing and ultrasound at Abria Pregnancy Resources.
Are You Really Pregnant?
It’s possible to have the above symptoms for completely different medical reasons than pregnancy. For instance, swollen or tender breasts could be because of a hormonal imbalance. Tension, stress, and depression can all cause fatigue, and the need to frequently urinate could be a urinary tract infection.
Excessive weight gain or loss, hormonal imbalance, stress, certain medications, and increased exercise can all change your menstrual cycle.
Could you possibly be experiencing a natural miscarriage? The Mayo Clinic suggests that as many as 1 in 4 known pregnancies ends in a natural miscarriage. You might experience certain symptoms for days afterward.
Verify Your Pregnancy First
While at-home pregnancy tests are accurate, many women facing an unexpected pregnancy take them too soon or don’t follow the directions correctly because of nervousness. As a result, it’s possible to get inaccurate pregnancy test results.
