Are you feeling a little different this month and can’t quite put your finger on why? Whether you've just started trying or whether you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a while, you're likely conscious of your body and wondering if this is ‘it’… are you going to be welcoming a new little cutie in 9 months time?
Some pregnancy tests can give you a result as early as 4-5 days before your missed period, although the accuracy on these tests is only about 50 to 75% when taken this early. But there are other signs that you can look out for...
1. Cravings and snacking
Changes in your hormone levels can cause food cravings and a feeling of hunger in the early stages.
2. Your breasts
You might be finding the girls are a little more sensitive and bigger during early pregnancy and these are one of the key tells that you’re expecting.
Now we’re not talking ‘ooh a little nap would be lovely’ more like ‘can’t keep your eyes open, fantasising about your bed’ kinda tired. The progesterone hormone produced during pregnancy can make you extra sleepy.
Of course, if you’re able to be a little patient and can wait until the day of your missed period, the accuracy of the home pregnancy tests is around 99%.
