11 Sure Signs You Are Pregnant

Most women are especially good about knowing when something feels off about their body system— and that gut instinct will definitely come in handy if you're trying to (or especially trying not to) get pregnant.

Whether you suddenly start to feel repulsive for foods you used to enjoy or are feeling super lightheaded out of nowhere, here are some easy signs to tell if you are pregnant.

Occasional Mood Swings

 Have you been feeling a little here and there in the emotions department lately? That just so happens to be one of the sure earliest signs of pregnancy. "

Mood swings can be so common and women usually just don't pay attention to it thinking it's from their period," says Mary L. Rosser, M.D., Ph.D., division director of General Obstetrics & Gynecology at the Montefiore Medical Center. "

Because of the surge of pregnancy hormones, mood swings tend to start almost immediately"


 With pregnancy comes plenty of hormonal changes and surges especially when its your first, and with those changes come bloating.

According to the Mayo Clinic, your abdomen could feel very similar to what you experience around the beginning of your period — but if it doesn't go away, it may be time to get checked out.

Intense Tiredness

 Feeling more exhausted than usual lately? There are a ton of sure causes for your fatigue — an illness, work, friends, your relationship — but pregnancy is also a possibility.

Just like with mood swings, fatigue also shows up during early pregnancy due to the high levels of progesterone in your body.

Can't Find Your Period

 The most without a doubt sign to tell you're pregnant is if you miss your period — just keep it in mind that, according to the Cleveland Clinic, there are other factors that could be messing with your monthly cycle, including occupational stress and excessive exercise.


 Cramps are the worst — and when you're pregnant, it is very similar to the throbbing pain you get from your period.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, you'll want to be aware of the exact place the cramping is taking place: If it's on one side of your body or is severely painful, set up an appointment with your doctor, just to be safe.

Fake Menstrual Blood

 It could actually be a sign you're pregnant. "If you're pregnant, you could experience some bleeding two weeks after fertilization and think it's just a light period.

Then, once you get to your next cycle, you'll miss your period," says a renowned gynecologists.

Constant Headaches

 Headaches are never fun to deal with, and according to Rosser, they can get especially bad as little as a week into your pregnancy because of the hormonal changes your body is going through.

The changes in blood volume that occur during pregnancy could also factor in.

Sore Breasts

 While it's common to have sore and tender breasts before your period, you'll feel even more discomfort if you're pregnant. "

One very common symptom we see is extremely sore and tender breasts," Rosser says. "They're much more sensitive and sore than with regular periods."


 If you're feeling a sick to your stomach — and no, not just in the morning as is usually seen— it may be a sign you're pregnant.

"Women might not necessarily be vomiting, but they can be extremely nauseated — especially if they don't eat," Rosser says.


 While nausea is common in pregnancies, so is actual vomiting — but the two don't necessarily go hand-in-hand.

That said, even if you don't actually throw up, there's still a high chance you'll feel sick to your stomach: According to experts, it happens to between 70 and 80 percent of women.

Light headedness

 Feeling lightheaded out of nowhere is incredibly common in women when they initially become pregnant.

Once again, blame those surging hormones and your changing blood levels.
