  1. Missed period: This is a no-brainer. If you were expecting a period and missed it, this could be mean there is a fertilized egg in you and there is no need for the shedding of the uterine wall. For most women, this is the first time they will realise that they just may be pregnant.
  2. Sore breasts: You know how your breasts feel heavy and tender when you get a period? Add to that sensitive to the touch and you may just be experiencing an early sign of pregnancy.
  3. Need to urinate frequently: If you are pregnant, the body releases a hormone called hCG which stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. The increased levels of this hormone in the urine is what is used to detect pregnancy with a home pregnancy test. Cool hormone but the annoying subtext, a need to use the bathroom very frequently!
  4. Tiredness and fatigue: This could irritate a lot of women who are so used to being constantly on the move! One of the early signs of pregnancy is when you suddenly can't seem to drag yourself out bed, or desperately feel the need to sit down and rest your feet. The release of hormones and your body readying itself for the growth of the baby is hard work and causing all the fatigue.
  5. Sensitive to smell: Suddenly feel like your nose has opened up and you can smell everything? Being sensitive to smell is a weird symptom of pregnancy and the reason behind it is unexplained, but nevertheless, it is nice that you can smell what your colleague is eating for lunch four cubicles away from you!
