Symptoms of pregnancy can include: lack of period, nausea, vomiting, headache, feeling tired, urinating more often, insomnia, enlarged or tender breasts, moodiness, etc. Those symptoms normally do not begin until her period is actually missed. If any of the above sounds familiar, you could take a pregnancy test. ...Read more
