Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms

Pregnancy brings about various physical and emotional changes, although not every woman experiences the same symptoms. 

Here are some common signs to look for


Feeling bloated is normal, especially in the early months of pregnancy. Increased hormones such as progesterone slow digestion, causing gas to be trapped in the intestines, leading to abdominal bloating.


Cramping and Spotting

Mild cramping and spotting can occur, often mistaken for a period. Approximately one in four women will experience spotting during early pregnancy.


Nausea and Vomiting

Morning sickness, including nausea and vomiting, is common, usually in the first trimester.



Feeling tired is typical throughout pregnancy.


Mood Swing

Hormonal changes can lead to mood swings, which tend to improve as pregnancy progresses.


Breast Changes

Tender, swollen breasts or changes in nipple color are common.


Sensitivity to Smells

Some women become more sensitive to odors.
