Early Signs & Symptoms of Teen Pregnancy Include:
A Missed Period
Missing your period is the most clear-cut sign of pregnancy. But it is not definitive, as stress or other factors may cause irregular periods.
Frequent Trips to the Bathroom
Even before missing a period, most pregnant women report having to go to the bathroom more often. You may even have to get up during the night! This occurs after the embryo has implanted in the uterus and begins producing the pregnancy hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone triggers frequent urination.
Utter exhaustion is a very early sign of pregnancy. Fatigue is a result of high levels of the hormone progesterone.
Guess what? That queasy feeling isn’t limited to mornings. Most pregnant women who experience morning sickness feel slightly nauseated at other times during the day as well. About half have vomiting, but very few have severe enough morning sickness to develop dehydration and malnutrition.
