6. Sensitive and Larger Breast
One thing most women love about pregnancy is the fact that they get an extra cup size (in some cases it might be their spouse that likes this side effect a little more than it is them liking it). Your breast are going to get sensitive and they are going to start to swell. If you bump into something, you might notice it hurting a lot more than it normally would. Your breast are also changing because they are going to produce milk for your baby in the near future.
7. Morning Sickness
The dreaded morning sickness. Most pregnant women agree that this is easily the worst symptom. No one likes throwing up. Some women say you gotta wonder how it is you are able to gain so much weight when it feels like you spend so much time throwing up in the bathroom.
Fortunately, morning sickness is something that wears off about 50 percent of the time once you hit your second trimester.
8. Missed Period
Obviously, a missed period should be a sign that you could be pregnant. It is important to keep in mind that a missed period does not 100 percent mean that you are pregnant. There are a lot of reasons why you could have missed your period. Take a pregnancy test and then go to the doctor for official confirmation.

The only sure fire way to know that you are pregnant is to go to the doctor and get tested. There is no harm or shame in wanting to take an at-home pregnancy test. I can tell you first hand it does not matter how many of those things you take or how much or how little they cost. We ended up trying a few different brands (we were in complete shock when we found out we were having a baby) and somehow we thought maybe the cheap dollar store test was wrong. Ended up wasting a lot of money on pregnancy tests. Get one cheap test and then go to the doctor.
There is certainly no reason for you to go through the stress of peeing on several tests and if that first test says you are pregnant it means one of two things:
(1) You are pregnant.
(2) There is something causing you to test false positive.
Testing false positive might not be a big deal. But, you are still going to want to have a doctor make sure it is nothing you should be concerned about.
