There is nothing more heart-racing than guessing if you are pregnant \u2013 it doesn\u2019t matter if you are trying to conceive or just happen to have unprotected sex. A home pregnancy test kit or a pregnancy test at the doctor\u2019s clinic will clarify it for sure, but until you can take one, which is usually when your period is already late, there may be tell-tale signs that your body emits to show you quite early on that you are, in fact, with a baby. Read on to see if you are experiencing any of the following. 1. Sudden shortness of breath Feeling out of breath too easily and too fast? If climbing a flight of stairs suddenly leaves you gasping a bit for air, it could mean that you\u2019re pregnant. Your forming foetus needs oxygen, leaving you a little short of it! 2. Sore or tender breasts If putting your bra on seems like a mild torture or your \u2018twins\u2019 seem to look or feel a little bigger than usual, well, that\u2019s another tell-tale clue that a baby\u2019s on the way! So are sudden darkening of the areolas and clearly visible, pronounced veins on your chest. 3. More tired than usual You could hardly finish your dinner last night and just could not wait to hit the sack when, before this, bedtime was no earlier that 1am \u2013 Well, increased levels of hormones during early pregnancy are indeed capable of making you feel (and look!) tired and worn out for no apparent reason. 4. Spotting Ah, you have your period. Or do you?\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 If it\u2019s just spotting, and a few days earlier than expected, you may actually be experiencing implantation bleeding, where the fertilised egg attaches to the uterine wall and causes a mini-bloodshed. \u00a0 5. Early nausea While many women feel the wrath of pregnancy nausea (a.k.a. morning sickness) when they\u2019re about six weeks along, just as many experience nausea and vomiting earlier than that. If you feel that nausea has been trying to be your new best friend lately, then you might know what to expect when you do take on a pregnancy test. 6. Lower backache If you don\u2019t normally get backaches but suddenly feel sore and tender at your lower back, it could be that the ligaments are loosening in preparation for carrying your baby. This, for some women, could actually carry on for the rest of\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 the pregnancy. \u00a0 7. Cramping This could be PMS, but is could also be the result of the uterus stretching to accommodate a baby. 8. Sudden food issues Can\u2019t stop thinking about watermelons all of a sudden? Or perhaps tuna, which as far as you know, is your favorite sandwich filling, now turns your stomach? If you notice food issues that weren\u2019t there before, it could be your body telling you you\u2019re pregnant. 9. Sudden bloatedness and constipation Just a few days ago your skinny jeans fitted great and now you suddenly can\u2019t get into them? If you\u2019re feeling a little puffed up or finding it difficult to \u2018go\u2019, it might be extra progesterone due to pregnancy, which slows down your digestive system. 10. Moody and blue Did a little war erupt over your hubby\u2019s failure to wash his own plate after dinner? If you\u2019re feeling a little moody and not quite yourself, if might be because your body is adjusting to\u00a0new hormones. 11. Super nose! Certain odours now makes you gag and you feel that you have developed a super-sensitive nose out of the blue - If you\u2019re feeling repulsed by certain smells, or have an increased sensitivity to odours, it may mean you\u2019ve got a bun in the oven. 12. The new Miss Fainter This is the popular symptom they use to signify a pregnancy in movies. However, there\u2019s nothing fictional about having a fainting spell during early pregnancy.\u00a0 Low blood sugar or blood pressure can cause some pretty giddy episodes.
