What are symptoms of pregnancy? What can I watch for to know I'm pregnant besides morning sickness?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question! 

A missed period is generally your first sign that you may be pregnant. As is morning sickness, as you mention. 

Frequent urination is also a sign, as well as tiredness and aversion to certain smells or tastes. 

As soon as you miss a period, a test will let you know if you are pregnant. These tests are about 99% effective.

I hope this has helped!
