If you have had a baby in the past and are on your second or third child, you will probably be able to recognize the same pregnancy symptoms as you had with your first pregnancy as soon as they start to happen. You won’t have to wait until you miss a period to know that you are pregnant because you will recognize all the early pregnancy symptoms that someone who has never been pregnant might mistake for something else.

Your stomach or abdomen may feel bloated more than normal when you first become pregnant. Yes some women say they can tell they are pregnant because of the way they feel in this area of their body. They aren’t lying when they day they can feel the baby. Well it’s not really the baby they feel, it’s the process their body is going through in preparation for being able to carry the baby.

Some people also refer to morning sickness as cravings for a certain food. If you suddenly find yourself wanting a food that you wouldn’t normally want, you may need to take a pregnancy tests to make sure.
