2. Early Signs of Pregnancy - Missed Period

Pregnancy symptoms vary for each individual. However, one of the most common and significant early pregnancy symptoms would be a missed period. This is especially true for those with a regular cycle. Women with a regular cycle will have their period every 25 to 30 days. Depending on the individual, it can be as short as 21 days or longer than 35.

However, their menstruation begins about the same time every cycle. When menstruation does not occur, the woman should suspect pregnancy. This can be misleading for those with an irregular menstrual cycle. Based on a survey conducted by the American Pregnancy Association, 29% of women reported their first pregnancy symptom as having a missed period.
