Signs of Pregnancy

Oddly, pregnancy symptoms and pre-period (menstruation) symptoms are very similar. 


Relying just on these symptoms isn’t a reliable way of confirming a pregnancy

Pregnancy Symptoms      Pre-menstrual Symptoms

Fatigue & Exhaustion   =  same  =  Fatigue and Exhaustion

Tender and/or bigger breasts  =  same  =  Tender and/or bigger breasts

Mood swings & crying spells  = same  = Mood swings and crying spells

Food cravings or dislikes  = same =  Food cravings or dislikes

Acne & breakouts  = same  =   Acne & breakouts

Bloating & weight gain  = same  =   Bloating & weight gain

Missed period                             Increase appetite

Lighter or shorter period             Constipation and diarrhea

Tingling nipples                           Memory lapses


Frequent urination

As you can see there are a lot of similarities! If you are unsure – it is important to confirm the pregnancy.

You can do this by taking a pregnancy test, seeing a doctor or visiting a family planning organisation.
