Not typical sign : Symptoms felt by a woman who is pregnant include things her partner might not be able to perceive. Signs are things he might be able to see. Symptoms of early pregnancy include breast tenderness, drowsiness, nausea. Signs of early pregnancy include breast swelling, slight physical changes around the nipple and cervix, sometimes vomiting. She should contact primary provider if hot flashes or fever.
