When it comes to determining if you might be pregnant, it’s crucial to be aware of the common symptoms that can sometimes resemble premenstrual syndrome (PMS), such as breast tenderness or nausea.

While it’s always recommended to take a pregnancy test to confirm your suspicions, let’s explore some of the most prevalent early pregnancy symptoms that you should keep an eye out for. 

Early Symptoms and Local Resources

A Missed Period

According to the Mayo Clinic, one of the most apparent and earliest signs of pregnancy is a missed period. This may not be the most reliable symptom if your period is irregular.


Most commonly known as “morning sickness,” it occurs in the first trimester and can occur at any time of day, although it does not always result in vomiting. It starts in the first nine weeks of pregnancy but is usually gone by the third month.

Increased Urination

If you find yourself making more frequent trips to the bathroom than normal, it could be a sign of pregnancy.  When you’re pregnant, there is an increase in hormone production, which produces more blood your kidneys work hard to filter, and the extra fluids find their way to your bladder.

Other Symptoms

Other symptoms, such as a change in appetite, volatile mood swings, or spotting, vary widely from woman to woman and are not as consistent for pregnancy prediction.
