Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A19171
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The symptoms of pregnancy include missed periods or altered periods (shorter and lighter bleeding), spotting, brown/pink discharge, fatigue, constipation or diarrhea, increased sleep, hunger and tiredness, mood changes, headaches, back pain, lower abdominal cramps, increased frequency of urination, breast soreness, nipple sensitivity, appearance of blue veins on breasts, pelvic discomfort and heaviness, food cravings, dizziness, increasing weight, increasing abdominal girth, increase in vaginal discharge without any foul smell or any other associated symptoms like itching, burning rashes etc.
However these are symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, and these should be confirmed by getting examination (to look for signs of pregnancy) and tests done by your gynecologist/healthcare provider.
Take care.
