Tired and Needing to Pee More?
Is Frequent Urination an Early Sign of Pregnancy?
You may need to go to the toilet more often in early pregnancy due to the fact that your blood volume starts increasing. From the moment of implantation, pregnancy hormones start to increase, sending triggers to your body to prepare for pregnancy.
Your blood volume increases by up to 50% during pregnancy. Increased blood volume means increased water volume which means increased need to pee.
You must support your increased blood volume in early pregnancy by drinking more water and taking vitamins and supplements to support blood flow (Get your free Oh My Mama Body pregnancy supplements guide here).

Is Feeling Tired an Early Sign of Pregnancy?
Hmmm, well it could also be a sign of your period coming. Why?
If you have not conceived, your estrogen hormone dips which can cause tiredness (and all of the other PMS symptoms like irritability and soreness). So you could be feeling tired due to your hormones being out of balance.
How to Know if I am Pregnant Before a BFP
Are you wondering if you are pregnant but it’s still too early to take a pregnancy test? I recommend buying a couple of early predictor tests from Clearblue or First Response. They are the most accurate and you can take them up to 6 days before your period is due. Get some delivered already so that you can start testing!
