Signs of Pregnancy and Common Pregnancy Symptoms

Sometimes it's hard to interpret the signals your body is sending you. So if you suspect you may be pregnant, you're probably eager to confirm it.

One easy way to find out is to take an over-the-counter home pregnancy test. The latest home pregnancy tests can be used the first day of your missed period and provide results within minutes. If you do discover you're pregnant, it's important that you make an appointment for your first prenatal visit with your healthcare provider.

There are also signals your body gives you to let you know you're pregnant. Look for these early pregnancy signs:

  • missing a menstrual period
  • frequent urination
  • tender, tingling, swollen breasts
  • "morning sickness," a queasiness that can occur any time of day
  • changes in skin color: darkening of the areola (the area around your nipple), deepening color of veins in your breasts, appearance of a dark line from your navel to your pubic bone
  • food cravings
  • feeling tired and sleepy all the time

If you are pregnant, she will also set up a series of prenatal appointments to get you and your baby off to the best start possible!

About 6 months ago i was diagnosed with PCOS. My last menstruation was approximately around August. Lately I've been feeling extremely sleepy and im not sure if its just the condition or the possibility of pregnancy. I've also been urinating more than usual, feeling queasy, breasts feel swollen as well as producing milk. I eventually took an at home pregnancy test but came out negative. I heard that PCOS can effect pregnancy tests. Is this true? And given the signs may i be pregnant?

Milk in breast

If you haven't had children in five years and if you are trying to conceive can that be a sign of pregnancy

My partner and I have been trying to conceive another child, bit haven't had any luck. We have had sex before my period, during and after. We also did it before I was supposed to ovulate while I was ovulating and even after, but still no luck I have tried many different ways and no success. What can we do to conceive a child to build our family

All but one

Now what? Just wait on the missed menstural cycle before taking a test? I am already craving foods I do not eat.
