Whether you are planning on having a baby or you’re wondering why you feel different all of a sudden, the idea that you might be pregnant may have crossed your mind. While it’s often too early to tell until you miss your period, there are some signs that pregnancy could be on the horizon for you. Here are five of the most common early signs of pregnancy and how you can tell if you are pregnant before your period is late.
Swollen breasts. Swollen breasts are one of the most common early signs of pregnancy. If your breasts swell within a week to 10 days after ovulation, you might be pregnant. If they are swollen, tender, and they tingle, it’s an even more obvious sign of pregnancy. The one caveat to this rule is you might experience this before your period arrives every month. If this is a normal premenstrual problem for you, it might not be an easy way for you to tell if you’re pregnant. If you don’t always feel your breasts changing leading up to your menstrual cycle, it’s easier to tell when they do. However, this is one symptom that’s more easily noticed when you also exhibit other early signs of pregnancy.
