Pregnancy is an important part of a person's life. It is the phase in which the individual is able to have a child of their own to take care of even before it is born. Many people wait for their pregnancy. At the same time, there is another group of people that does not want the pregnancy to occur and want to know if they are pregnant so that they can abort the child. The two groups of women have the same aim and that is to know if they are pregnant.

There are a few signs that help to know that if a woman is pregnant or not. These signs are explained in this article.

1. Missed periods:
This is one of the most important and early sign of pregnancy. If an individual is pregnant, then the periods will be missed. So a woman who is expecting to be pregnant may actually take this as the first sign of her pregnancy. The woman should understand though, that missed periods can be a false positive because the periods may be delayed in many women for various reasons.

2. Morning sickness: Nausea and morning sickness is another important sign that tells that a woman is pregnant. This may occur in some women only and may not occur in others. The people should also remember that the nausea can be due to various other reasons.

3. Areolas: The nipples of the woman who is pregnant as mild changes and the areolas change color and their size increases which is a sign that the body of the woman is getting ready to provide milk to the baby.

4. Mood changes: Though mood changes during the menstrual cycle is common, the mood swings when the woman is pregnant is prolonged and this can be another sign that the woman is pregnant.

5. Eating habits: The eating habits of a woman who is pregnant suddenly changes and the woman becomes crazy after certain kinds of foods and also avoids other kinds of foods. This is another important sign that the woman is pregnant.

6. Increase in weight: The sign that can also mean that the woman is pregnant is the weight gain that occurs. Many women start putting on weight early in their pregnancy and this is a common sign that the woman is pregnant. The weight gain will be sudden during pregnancy and not gradual. Gradual weight gain can be due to various other causes.

7. Low back pain: This back ache can be another common reason that can mean that a woman is pregnant. This is because there are certain hormones released in a pregnant women that cause lax ligaments leading to back pain.

In spite of all the signs and symptoms given in the article, there is only one confirmatory sign to tell that a woman is pregnant and that is the laboratory tests. Urine tests and also blood tests are available that will confirm the presence of pregnancy.

These are the common signs that show that a woman is pregnant. These signs can at times be wrong as unless the confirmed test is done using the medical kit, one cannot be sure of their pregnancy.
