Heaviness/Fullness

Very Early Pregnancy Symptom

Symptom Details

Some women experience many symptoms in early pregnancy that are similar to PMS, such as a heavy/full feeling in the abdomen. The hormones released during pre-menstruation continue in early pregnancy resulting in similar symptoms. Many of these symptoms are very normal and are attributed to the many changes that are beginning to occur in the body.

Comparison Chart

**NOTE: Data for 15-21 dpo tends to be lower than expected as many women stop tracking symptoms after a positive pregnancy test.
