If you’re newly pregnant, it’s not uncommon to feel repelled by the smell of a bologna sandwich or a cup of coffee, and for certain aromas to trigger your gag reflex. Though no one knows for sure, this may be a side effect of rapidly increasing amounts of estrogen in your system. You may also find that certain foods you used to enjoy are suddenly completely repulsive to you. Pregnancy Symptoms
It’s common to have mood swings during pregnancy, partly because of hormonal changes that affect neurotransmitters (chemical messengers in the brain). Everyone responds differently to these changes. Some women heightened emotions, both good and bad; some feel more depressed or anxious.
Note: If you’ve been feeling sad or hopeless or unable to cope with your daily responsibilities, or you’re having thoughts of harming yourself, call your healthcare provider or a mental health professional right away.
Frequent urination Pregnancy Symptoms
If your pregnancy starts as early as six weeks then you can feel frequent urination problem, because of hormonal changes prompt a chain of events that raise the rate of blood flow through your kidneys. This causes your bladder to fill more quickly, so you need to pee more often.
Frequent urination will continue – or intensify – as your pregnancy progresses.
One common pregnancy symptom is sensitive, swollen breasts caused by rising levels of hormones. The soreness and swelling may feel like an exaggerated version of how your breasts feel before your period. Your discomfort should diminish significantly after the first trimester, as your body adjusts to the hormonal changes. Pregnancy Symptoms
Feeling tired all of a sudden? No, make that exhausted. No one knows for sure what causes early pregnancy fatigue, but it’s possible that rapidly increasing levels of the hormone are contributing to your sleepiness. Of course, morning sickness and having to urinate frequently during the night can add to your sluggishness, too.
You should start to feel more energetic once you hit your second trimester, although fatigue usually returns late in pregnancy when you’re carrying around a lot more weight and some of the common discomforts of pregnancy make it more difficult to get a good night’s sleep.
If you are early pregnant you can feel Morning sickness too. It starts after two weeks you’ve conceived when you’re actually four weeks pregnant. It’s more common for it to start when you’re about six weeks pregnant, though.
You may feel nauseous, with or without vomiting, at any time of the day or night. Morning sickness usually starts to ease as you reach the end of the trimester.
Get the feeling that you can’t stand up straight or that your head is spinning? It’s not just random. Dizziness is actually a very common symptom that could explain pregnancy suspicions.

Stuffiness and Headaches Pregnancy Symptoms
It’s not just allergies or your average cold. Stuffiness and headaches are common and are actually officially called “rhinitis of pregnancy.”
Upset stomach and Indigestion
No matter what you do or eat, your stomach is unhappy. It’s not your imagination. In fact, an upset stomach and never-ending indigestion are two of the first symptoms of pregnancy.
Light bleeding or spotting
the last thing you want to see is any spotting or vaginal bleeding. But if you notice just light spotting around the time your period is due, it could be implantation bleeding.
Note: About 1 in 4 women experience spotting or light bleeding during the first trimester. It’s often nothing, but sometimes it’s a sign of miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. If your bleeding is severe or accompanied by pain or lightheadedness, or if you’re at all concerned, call your doctor.
A missed period
If you’re usually pretty regular and your period doesn’t arrive on time, you may decide to do a pregnancy test before you notice any of the above symptoms. But if you’re not regular or you’re not keeping track of your cycle,, breast tenderness and extra trips to the bathroom may signal pregnancy before you realize you didn’t get your period.
The proof: A positive home pregnancy test
Before going for a pregnancy test in home keep in mind that some home pregnancy tests are not sensitive enough to reliably detect pregnancy until about a week after a missed period. So if you decide to take a test earlier than that and get a negative result, try again in a few days. Pregnancy Symptoms
