Even if you have typical pregnancy symptoms, you still need to take a pregnancy test to get an initial answer. Sometimes, these symptoms can come from health conditions, stress, and other sources.

If you think you’re pregnant, visit Embrace for lab-quality pregnancy testing. If your test is positive, you’ll be offered a limited sonogram to medically confirm the pregnancy.

At Embrace, you don’t have to wonder whether help is available. An unexpected pregnancy can be scary, but you aren’t alone.

What Symptoms to Watch For

You may wonder about a pregnancy because you’re having symptoms. However, some women don’t have any. If you’ve missed your period or have had sexual intercourse, it’s crucial to take a test.

Pregnancy symptoms can vary, but the ones to watch for include:

1. Missed Period

If you’ve missed your period, you may be pregnant. This is often one of the first symptoms a woman notices, but a missed period can also occur if you have an irregular menstrual cycle or certain health issues.

2. Frequent Urination

During pregnancy, your kidneys process more fluid because your blood volume increases. This puts extra pressure on your bladder and causes you to use the bathroom more often.

3. Tender, Swollen Breasts

Hormonal changes can make your breasts feel uncomfortably sore or sensitive. However, this symptom should go away after the initial weeks of pregnancy.

4. Nausea (With or Without Vomiting)

Pregnancy hormones may make you feel nauseous. This symptom is often called “morning sickness,” but it can happen at any time of the day. If your nausea and/or vomiting is severe, your healthcare provider can help you ease this symptom with medication.

5. Fatigue

Feeling more tired than usual? Rising progesterone levels may contribute to any fatigue you experience.

6. Food Aversions

You may find that foods you once enjoyed are now unappealing, and certain smells may be bothersome, too. Hormonal changes cause this pregnancy symptom.

7. Moodiness

With the shifts in hormonal levels and the physical changes your body is experiencing, you may notice moodiness or shifts in how you’re feeling.

These changes are normal, but if they’re disruptive, it’s important to speak with a healthcare provider about ways to manage this symptom. This can be a stressful time, and you deserve support.
