Editorial Team

Before you missed your period that assures you that you're pregnant, there are some symptoms you will experience that are pointers to you being pregnant. They are indicators of your pregnancy.

A pregnancy can be confirmed only when you miss your period, and the pregnancy test kit indicates positive. Here are some symptoms of pregnancy before missing your period;

Tender And Heavy Breasts

Breast changes are also early signs of pregnancy. The moment you conceive, the hormones send the signals to the breasts to get ready in 40 weeks.You may see them tingly, swollen, and sore to touch. You will also feel uncomfortable and cumbersome. You will notice your bras becoming tighter after a few weeks of missed periods or around the sixth to the eighth week of pregnancy. These signs may be similar to that of PMS, but they are worse during pregnancy.


Fatigue without a reason may also be a sign of pregnancy, before a missed period. You may experience many other changes in your body like increased blood production so as to support your fetus growth. It will exhaust your energy levels, especially when you don’t get enough minerals, vitamins, iron, and fluids in your diet.


Nausea or morning sickness is a classic pregnancy sign that you can notice in the early stages. You will feel dizzy, weak, and may want to throw up at times.

Nausea usually subsides after your first trimester, but sometimes it may last through the nine months. In some women, morning sickness will not set in until the sixth week, whereas in others, it starts  early.


Your tummy may protrude, your pants may be tight, and you might need to unbutton to breathe easily. You may look like pregnant even if your fetus is tiny, or just a ball of cells.  To find relief from bloating, eat small portions through the day for easy digestion. Avoid fried and fatty foods, and choose healthy foods.

Frequent Urination

You may frequently have the urge to pee especially during the night. It may be annoying but is a common symptom during pregnancy. The kidneys work to filter more blood filling up the bladder, causing you to pee frequently.

Mood Swings

Mood swings are due to hormonal changes, The variations in the hormone levels affect neurotransmitters of the brain, which cause enhanced emotions, from spells of weeping to sudden anger outbursts.


Your bowel movements get harder as the hormones cause the food to pass slowly along the digestive system. If you feel constipated regularly, you should consider taking a home pregnancy test.


Early stages of pregnancy make women feel thirsty very often due to the increase in the blood volume. Therefore, it causes frequent urination that in turn will make you feel like having lots of fluids.
