Are you wondering if you’re pregnant but unsure what to look for? What you may think are pregnancy symptoms can actually indicate something else, such as a health condition or hormonal changes. Determining whether you’re pregnant can be confusing. 

The best way to confirm a potential pregnancy is to take a pregnancy test. EPIC Center provides medical-quality pregnancy tests and limited ultrasounds with a positive test result, so you’ll determine essential pregnancy details and your next steps.

Keep reading to learn the top signs you may be pregnant.

1. Missed Period

If your cycles are irregular, a missed period may not be the best indication of a pregnancy. But for women with regular cycles, this symptom could be a telltale sign.

2. Frequent Urination

Your kidneys are processing extra fluid during pregnancy, so you may find your bladder full often. If you’re visiting the restroom more frequently, you may be pregnant.

3. Nausea (With or Without Vomiting)

You may have heard of “morning sickness,” but nausea and vomiting can occur at any time of the day. Hormonal changes likely contribute to this symptom.

4. Fatigue

Are you feeling more tired than usual or taking frequent naps? Increases in progesterone levels may cause the fatigue you feel during early pregnancy. 

5. Tender, Swollen Breasts

Are your breasts feeling sore or more uncomfortable than usual? Hormonal changes can also cause this symptom, though it should disappear after those initial weeks. 

6. Moodiness 

As hormonal levels change, mood swings and more emotional behavior can occur during early pregnancy. Moodiness is normal, but speak with your medical provider if your emotions become especially disruptive. 

7. Food Aversions

What was once your favorite food may seem off-putting to you now. And your sense of smell may change. Once again, these shifts can be due to hormonal changes. 

I Think I’m Pregnant. What Should I Do?

If you think you’re pregnant, it’s best to test for pregnancy before making any decisions. If you receive a positive result, you should still have an ultrasound to learn whether your pregnancy is progressing normally, its location, and how far along you are. 

Remember, not everyone pregnant has symptoms. It’s best to wait a few weeks after sexual intercourse to take a pregnancy test if you’re unsure.
