There seems to be two types of people when it comes to making a baby. One is analyzing their body's every feeling and symptom, hoping and praying it means they're pregnant. The other is either not really trying at all or more laid back and less obsessive over their possible symptoms. No matter which category you fall into, it turns out there are some pregnancy symptoms you might not notice, especially because these symptoms can be caused by a million other things, like PMS, not drinking enough water, too rough of a romp in the sheets the night before, or even catching a cold.
Don't worry, you're not a totally oblivious person, because according to Dr. Adrienne Zertuche, an OB-GYN at a division of Atlanta Women’s Healthcare Specialists, many of these early pregnancy symptoms can be subtle. (Like, really subtle.) There's a number of other symptoms that may occur in early pregnancy as well, but may also be explained by other medical problems. It's easy to tell yourself that you're needing to pee so often is because you're drinking more water or that your exhaustion is because you've been working late, but if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms and your period is late, it is probably a good time to take a pregnancy test.
