The answer

The most common symptoms of early pregnancy are feeling very tired, feeling sick and enlarged tender breasts. The first clue to pregnancy is a late period but some women do experience a lighter period than normal instead. Other symptoms of pregnancy include constipation, a more sensitive sense of smell, a strange or metallic taste in the mouth or a craving for certain foods. If you think you may be pregnant you can buy a cheap and simple urine test kit from any chemist (they are very accurate).
