Think you might be pregnant? Or want to know if you’ve conceived? Well, as well as using modern pregnancy tests, which are extremely accurate, there are some 10 common early signs that you are pregnant. Take a look at these early warning signs and you might be able to determine whether you might need to use a pregnancy test – whether it’s unexpected or planned.
1. Sore breasts
This is the classic tell-tale sign that you’re pregnant. Even during the very early stages of pregnancy, the breasts begin to become sore. You will notice the pain in the mornings when you’re putting on a bra – your breasts will feel sensitive simply to the touch of your bra.
The breasts will also feel much heavier than usual, and the areolas will become to become much darker than they previously were. You may even notice veins in your chest become more visible, as a result of more blood being pumped towards the breast area, as the body gets ready to start producing milk for the baby.
The best way you can stop the pain is to wear a more supportive bra than normal. It’ll hold the breasts in place, essentially hugging them, removing any major discomfort throughout the day. You could also wear it in bed for a better night’s sleep.
