1         Painful breasts cup having tender and swollen like feeling with ticklish nipples every morning. In the early weeks usually the nipple gets really ticklish and you can feel your breast swollen even if you slept in a proper posture. Your mammary glands are changing and the swollen breasts are one effect of it. Notice that your nipples change in color and size as days pass by.

They do not know where the pain is coming from and it is sometimes very alarming to some that it might be from other serious illness.

3         Missed period – this is the most reliable one but some women just missed period for other health reasons and climate changes including stress factors. When you think you are delayed at least 10 days, get a pregnancy test and if its positive immediately visit any gynecologist for pre-natal care. The first trimester is the most crucial foundation of the baby. There are women who do not notice or do not care with missed period often end already 3 month pregnant and though that symptoms are just due to stress.

4         Pulses are very strong – every pulse in the body changes in the rate when becoming pregnant. You can notice an increased in pulse especially near the collarbone and wrist. Some of these pulses are noticeable by other people.

5         Light urine – when you have lighter color urine than the usual (closer to clear) you have to be conscious about pregnancy. You know your body when it changes.

6         Rapid increase or decrease of weight – there are women who lose fat when they are pregnant and they become so frail looking. But there are women who gains weight and very blooming. But if the gaining and losing is not normal take a PT test. The one part of a woman’s body that is very noticeable to chain is the birth handle or the hip. When you notice your pants are beginning to be tight and in the following week you cannot fit in it anymore, take the PT test.

7         Morning sickness – is when you feel nauseated and you vomit every morning or when you are hungry or too full from a meal.

8         Metallic taste – you start to feel that your tongue tastes differently. You start craving for food with intense tastes like salty, sour or too sweet.

9         Sleeplessness or over sleeping- This happens especially in the afternoon and different from your usual sleeping habit.

10      Pains everywhere in your body; it can be either in your lower abdomen, lower back, upper or middle part of your stomach and you may even experience having painful and stressful pains in your shoulder and upper back.
