Pregnancy symptoms are often not the most comfortable to endure. These videos show what it feels like to be pregnant, from those first early pregnancy signs and symptoms, to what it feels like to go overdue. From cramps and sickness to sore boobs and achy backs, these mums have held nothing back.
Early pregnancy symptoms
Early pregnancy symptoms can happen within the first four weeks of falling pregnant and can include anything from feeling tired to feeling bloated to a missed period or sore breasts. It can be extra confusing when a lot of these symptoms are similar to those of getting your period. So when is the best time to take a test? Usually it’s on the first day you expect to get your period but it’s safe to test again a few days later as well just to be sure. The early days of pregnancy might see you feeling excessively tired, or you might have headaches or food aversions. You may even be vomiting or feeling the need to wee more frequently. If any of these symptoms sound familiar, it’s a good idea to take a test, just to be sure.
