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
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.
