Pregnancy Symptoms and Signs

We've all heard stories from women who just knew they were pregnant from the moment of conception. The rest of us, however, are left to rely on other - less intuitive - means of determining if there's a baby on the way.

Here's our list of the Top Ten Signs you may be pregnant (but if you want to cut to the chase and find out for sure, home pregnancy tests can help you confirm your suspicions). Please keep in mind that, while the signs described here are quite common in early pregnancy, you may not experience all - or even any - of these symptoms.

1. Missed Your Period?
This is the classic sign of pregnancy - especially if, like many women, your cycles are typically like clockwork. If you've missed your period, it's probably time to take a home pregnancy test. Home pregnancy tests work by determining the amount of hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) present in your urine. Remember - your first urine of the day tends to have the most concentrated amount of hCG. Early morning urine will give you your best chance at detecting the small concentrations of hCG that are present in the early days of pregnancy.

2. Feeling Sick in the Morning - Or Any Other Time?

About one-half of all pregnant women experience some form of morning sickness (nausea, vomiting, etc.) in early pregnancy. Contrary to popular belief, "morning" sickness isn't always limited to morning; many women experience nausea in the evening, in the afternoon - and a substantial percentage of lucky ladies feel sick all day. (Note: Although rare, morning sickness can be extreme in some cases. Contact your doctor if are becoming dehydrated as a result of morning sickness.)

3. Are Your Breasts Sore?
Are your breasts or nipples feeling a bit sensitive - perhaps in the same way they feel right before you have your period? This is one more sign that you may be pregnant. Breast sensitivity is a common phenomenon in early pregnancy - and thankfully, one that begins to fade by the second trimester. But if you're one of those "glass is half full" types, look at it this way: for many women, sensitive breasts translate into heightened pleasure during intimate moments…

4. Checked Your Areola Lately?
Along with more sensitive breasts, you may notice a slight darkening of the areola, the concentric zone which surrounds the nipple. (Some say this darkening serves a purpose; it makes it easier for your baby to find his/her food source!)

5. Honorable Discharge?
In the early days of pregnancy, mucous begins to accumulate around the opening of the cervix to form the mucous plug, a barrier that helps protect the baby during its development. As a result of this mucous formation, you may notice a bit of vaginal discharge. (Discharge as a sign of pregnancy should not be accompanied by other distinguishing features of an infection, such as a burning sensation, foul smell, or itchiness.)

6. Gotta Pee?
Although pregnancy is indeed miraculous, it does not involve a suspension of the laws of physics. That means that as the baby grows larger in your uterus, the space that once allowed for expansion of your bladder is decreased. The result? You feel like you need to pee more often. Also, you may notice bloating similar to what you experience prior to your period.

7. Not Tonight, Honey. I've Got a Headache...
As a result of the complex mixture of hormones coursing through a pregnant woman's body, it's not uncommon for women to experience headaches more frequently during pregnancy.

8. Seeing Spots?
Around the time when implantation occurs (the moment when the embryo attaches to the lining of the uterine wall), it's not uncommon to notice a bit of spotting. You would look for this sign at around eight to ten days after you last ovulated. (You can use the ovulation calculator located on our home page to calculate your ovulation date.) Spotting as a result of implantation usually looks a bit different than your regular period; it tends to be light in volume and pinkish in color, as opposed to the deep red color associated with regular menstrual bleeding.

9. Temperature Climbing?

A raised basal body temperature past the time when your period is due is another possible indicator of pregnancy.

10. All Stopped Up?
Another sign of pregnancy is constipation. This is caused by certain hormones which are present in early pregnancy relaxing your intestines and slowing the digestive process.

These signs are ones often experienced in early pregnancy - but that's not to say there aren't others. Many women have reported experiencing other "tell-tale" signs such as:

  • an enhanced sense of smell
  • fatigue
  • hunger
  • weepiness
  • heartburn
  • complexion problems ("breaking out")

Once you suspect you are pregnant, home pregnancy tests can confirm you suspicions. For FDA Approved pregnancy tests that allow you to begin detecting pregnancy at around 7-10 days past ovulation, please click here.

How can i ever stop being thankful to Dr. Yzma for what he did for me, what other so-called spell-casters and witch-doctors could not do, that he did for me and i must share to the world the extent of his powers and how he attended to me wholesomely through this short article of my testimony. And not only will i talk about this god but i will also want you reading this, to pick gain and apply it so that you and your lover live a peaceful loving life.
Braniff Susan is my name and i originate from United States. Well, i am sorry to say that i was a nagging wife to my beloved husband and it wasn't my fault, i just wanted my husband to be faithfully to me because my husband friends were flirts of women and i never wanted them to corrupt my husband. So, anytime he comes back from clubbing with his friends, or from office late i always nag and bring up quarrel against him and i felt i was doing the right thing but it came to a time that i was too over reactive on my husband and a quarrel ensued between us both and he decided we part ways by filing out divorce against me and he meant it. But i never wanted to leave him because he was the love of my life and the father of my kids and i came to know that he was really very faithful when he told me every temptations he received from sexy girls trying to befriend him and his friends trying to lure him to befriend them but because of his love for me and the kids that he always has rebuked them and now i am accusing him of having a lover outside and in anger, he called his lawyer to file a divorce against me and when i knew all these facts he told me, i was ashamed and i pleaded for forgiveness but he never listened to me and told me his actions were final and he left the house that day.
I was confused at first, the whole thing looked to me as film then the next day, i told my friend {Tiffany} about my husband's action to divorce me and i sought advice from her but she told me not to worry at all, that all what i need do was to contact one Dr. Yzma at yzmaspellcasts@gmail.com to help save my marriage from divorce and then she warned me never again should i nag but anytime i feels my husband is going astray, i should just call him calmly and tell him that is action wasn't right and made him understand than enhancing quarrel between we both. After Tiffany was through, i told her that concerning the contact she said i should make was one i will not as when i once had challenges with my health, after contacting 3 spell-casters and sending money to them, my illness was worst than before and whenever i contact others, all what they keep telling me was money, money and i told her maybe the same will still happen if i contact this Dr. Yzma but she laughed, telling me when her husband deserted her, the same doctor's spell brought him back within 3 days and betted that if i contact Dr. Yzma without help coming forth, that our friendship be over and that i should see her as an enemy and when i saw she was mean to it, i had to check it out and i sent email to yzmaspellcasts@gmail.com as she directed me, telling this doctor all what that transpired between me and my husband and how he keep friends with people i don't like and how my friend has directed me to him.
I started to lose hope as he didn't respond to my mail on-time but my friend told me to be patient that it was a virtue. Three days later, he replied me and assured me that he was going to help me, that he had been consulting his oracle on my behalf and that his gods is pleased with helping me and he said within 24 hours, i should come back with testimony of what i need from my husband. That was all, exactly a day he wrote to me, i was surprised and glad to see my husband come back home and call me "sweetheart, i had forgiven you and i have come to realize that when a wise walk with a fool, he soon will get foolish and he said he will try to avoid his friends and today, we are living happily with our kids.
And before i draw curtain, i must give kudos to Tiffany for helping me and to every woman out there, please stop nagging as you could trigger your husband to do an undo thing and if you're a man, try to follow your wife advice and make her understand you. And to everyone in need of help to that marital challenges, health challenges, financial challenges or spiritual challenges, whatsoever challenges you're in, i urge you today, to contact Dr. Yzma and i bet you of solution to your problems for i believe if he can help me then certainly you can also be helped.

How can i ever stop being thankful to Dr. Yzma for what he did for me, what other so-called spell-casters and witch-doctors could not do, that he did for me and i must share to the world the extent of his powers and how he attended to me wholesomely through this short article of my testimony.

An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is james i live in Australia,and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{ideshispelltemple@outlook .com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {5}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {ideshispelltemple@outlook.com},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the ideshispelltemple for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{ideshispelltemple@outlook.com}
Thanks...

Please email Dr. Dele on dr.delespiritualtemple@gmail.com for help; he brought back my man with 48 hours with his love spell. My boyfriend who I had dated for 4 years and already living together suddenly woke up and said to me last July that he does not love me anymore, he is not happy with the relationship and that he does not want us to live a miserable life together.

He has already rented a new apartment and wants to move in with a new girl he met at work. I begged and pleaded with him but all my effort fail and I became desperate and searched for solution that was how I meet the great spell caster Dr. Dele and after 48 hours that he cast the love spell my lover came back to me leaving the other lady.

The love spell worked faster than I ever expected because I did not trust him from the beginning. I am using this post to encourage all women and men in relationship not to give up on their love and always fight to the finish for their loved once and also to give out this great spell casters contact email: (dr.delespiritualtemple@gmail.com)
