The first signs of an early pregnancy are the
Symptoms of the PMS phase quite similar. PMS means premenstrual syndrome and refers to the complaints in the days before the onset of menstruation. Because the hormone progesterone is elevated in both pregnancy and the PMS phase, the symptoms are similar:
– Tightness in the chest and/ or sensitive nipples – Irritability. low blood prere – headaches, migraines – elevated basal body temperature (only detectable by regular measurement) – abdominal pain or. a pulling sensation in the abdomen – constipation – different eating behavior
All of these signs can indicate PMS, but they can also indicate pregnancy.

Then the bodily signs quickly disappear, while they remain for a certain time or even intensify in the case of pregnancy.

Other women also report that they simply do not notice anything out of the ordinary. The feeling of being pregnant is not there at first, so that the surprise is even bigger in the further course of the pregnancy.
