Could I Be Pregnant?
If you have sex there is always a chance for pregnancy. Many women assume if they are using contraception they can't become pregnant, however contraception is not 100 percent effective and there is still a chance for pregnancy.
Late or Missed Period
Once you are pregnant, you will stop having monthly periods until a few weeks after your baby is born. This is one of the first signs of pregnancy women notice.
Some of your favorite foods may suddenly taste bad, while others you normally don't like become appealing.
Pregnancy triggers hormonal changes that may affect taste buds.
Hormonal fluctuations caused by pregnancy may cause you to become more emotional than usual.
Early Pregnancy may be accompanied by internal abdominal bleeding and pain in some women.
As your growing uterus puts pressure on your bladder, you may find your self needing more trips to the restroom than usual.
Early pregnancy can cause you to feel more tired. You may need to sleep longer at night or take naps during the day.
During early pregnancy, your breast may feel fuller and heavier, and your areoles may become darker.
Light Bleeding or Spotting
Some women experience light spotting and even mild cramps about 1-2 weeks after conception.
Also called "morning sickness" can actually happen any time of the day and usually appears about a month after conception.
High Basal Body
If your body temperature stays elevated for more than two weeks, it could be a sign of early pregnancy.
