Understanding the Early Pregnancy Symptoms
by Terje Brooks
other issues in the body. Missing your period is not always a sign of pregnancy but it
can be for many women who notice it if they monitor their periods.

In some women, the early pregnancy symptom is not missing their period but
changes in the amount of blood that is lost during their period. Women may have a
very heavy period instead of a light one or their period may be a lot lighter than
normal. Any changes in menstruation can possibly be an early pregnancy symptom.

Changes in the Body

One of the changes in a woman's body that can be an early pregnancy symptom is
weight gain. If a woman gains weight when she is not eating or working out any
differently than before, it may be an early symptom of pregnancy. Tender and sore
breasts may also indicate that a woman is pregnant. These are symptoms that
prompt many women to take a pregnancy test.

Some women find that early on in the pregnancy, they feel nauseated, which is
another early pregnancy symptom. This is also referred to as morning sickness and
can be mild or in some cases very severe and hard to miss. It is a strong sign that a
woman is pregnant so it is another reason women go and buy a pregnancy test.

Changes in Eating Habits

Often, one of the early signs of pregnancy is a change in the way a woman eats,
which can include cravings for foods you don't normally eat and disliking foods you
used to enjoy. Women are often said to crave pickles and ice cream if they are
pregnant, and some actually do. The cravings that women have vary, though, from
sweets to meat to fruits and vegetables. In some cases, women find they cannot
tolerate certain foods. This is an early pregnancy symptom as well. The sight, smell
or taste of what used to be their favorite foods may make them feel ill. They may
eat like they normally would only to find that they feel sick afterward.
