Pregnancy symptoms

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Symptoms that start early in pregnancy can include tender breasts and feeling very tired. But those symptoms might be due to something else too. An illness or the start of your period can cause these symptoms. The easiest way to find out why you have what seem like pregnancy symptoms is to take a home pregnancy test.

If your home pregnancy test is positive, make an appointment with your healthcare professional. You also might want to try a pregnancy due date calculator. When you're pregnant, having an idea of your due date is an important part of prenatal care.
