Are you starting to think you might be pregnant? If that’s so, this can either be a great thing or completely frightening. Whichever way you’re feeling, by gathering information on the early signs of pregnancy, you can better prepare yourself for what lies ahead.
If you want to be completely certain that you’re pregnant, you’ll have to purchase a testing kit either online or at a local drugstore. But if you know what to be on the lookout for, you’ll be able to catch up on some of the first signs of pregnancy.
Here are just a few of the signs that you might have a baby on the way.
Sign #1: Late Period
Most women start to suspect that they’re pregnant, and decide to take a pregnancy test, when their period is late or missing. However, it’s important that you remember that your period can also be late for other reasons such as stress, hormonal changes, and weight loss and gain.
If it’s already been one or more weeks after the date your period was expected to start, you can consider the possibility of being pregnant but this can be unreliable, especially if you have an irregular cycle. So, you can’t be completely sure until you take a pregnancy test, and you should also consider seeing a doctor to be certain.
