Though there are various first signs of being pregnant still, several women do not understand these early signs of pregnancy until several days or even weeks of conception.

On the other hand, some women are more sensitive to these subtle signs of pregnancy. Picking up on the early pregnancy signs can help a great deal in taking the right steps right from the beginning of pregnancy.

Apart from the usual first signs of pregnancy like nausea, frequent urination, gas, bloating, dizziness, morning sickness, cramps, fatigue, and other flu-like symptoms, there are certain other early signs of being pregnant.

They are:

Missed period: This is one of the surest signs of pregnancy. Although, factors like stress, taking oral contraceptives and other factors causing hormonal changes could also cause a missed period without being pregnant.


Food Cravings:
Again, this is perhaps one of the most common first signs of being pregnant. Apart from food craving or aversion, another first sign of being pregnant is a sudden and abrupt increased sensitivity to smell and taste.

In certain pregnancies, these symptoms may be present not just during the early stages but throughout the pregnancy. Certain pregnant women may also experience the presence of a metallic taste in the mouth.

Elevated basal body temperature: A persistent increase in the basal body temperature, usually for about two weeks or more is another early sign of being pregnant.

Implantation bleeding: Implantation bleeding or spotting is another significant first sign of pregnancy. This happens about 6 to 12 after conception when the fertilized egg initiates its implantation into the uterus.

Breast tenderness: Symptoms like tenderness in breasts is often accompanied by soreness in nipples and darkening of the skin around the nipples (aureoles) can be caused by hormonal changes due to pregnancy.

Emotional commotion: Emotional upheaval in the form of irritability and mood swings is another commonly known early sign of pregnancy. In addition, some women have also reported having vivid dreams subtly indicating about the upcoming change in life.

Depending on an individual’s level of attunement with the body, these first signs of being pregnant are often experienced in varying degrees, mostly during the first trimester of pregnancy.
