12 Early Signs You Might Be Pregnant

Any of these ring a bell? Might be time to pee on that stick...
1. Tingly nipples

As pregnancy hormones increase the blood supply to your breasts, you may notice a prickling or tingling sensation around your nipples. This can be one of the first signs that you're pregnant.

2. Sore boobs

This is a common sign of pregnancy, and is usually noticeable after the four-week mark. Since the tissues in your breasts are incredibly hormone sensitive, they swell and feel a lot heavier as progesterone and hCG start flooding the body and increasing blood volume after fertilization.

3. Your vagina has changed color

As early as four weeks into pregnancy your vulva and vagina can change color, so you may notice this before any other symptoms. As the amount of blood being supplied to the area increases, it can turn vaginal skin from pink to dark purplish or red.

4. Increased vaginal discharge

Noticing extra vaginal discharge is extremely common in early pregnancy. Pregnancy can also make you more prone to bouts of thrush, so if you notice unusual changes in discharge appearance or smell, make a trip to your doctor.

5. Unusual stomach cramps

You may dismiss it as period pains, but stomach twinges or cramps can be triggered by implantationwhen the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall. If you notice cramps or tummy pains that aren't followed by a period, take a pregnancy test.

6. Unexpected spotting

Following on from the above, the implantation process can also cause a little bleeding. If you had a bleed that was much lighter than usual, and at a different time than expected, you may be experiencing implantation bleeding.

7. Bloating
