4 Pregnancy Symptoms You Might Be Missing

There are many pregnancy symptoms that are very common but also many you may skip over as pregnancy related.

Every pregnancy is different and most of the time you don’t recognize the early symptoms until after the fact.

Now that I’m in the midst of pregnancy number 3, I’ve noticed there have many similarities in the symptoms I had before finding out I was pregnant and within the following week or two.

What pregnancy symptoms did you have before knowing or soon after getting a + test?


Here are 3 unique pregnancy symptoms you might not think of:

Symptom #1: Intense hunger.

I’m talking hunger where if it takes longer than expected you cry. hunger so serious that you need to eat them and now, not a moment later. The kind of hunger where you eat the amount you normally would and don’t even feel partly satisfied. That was an obvious sign for me. It’s happened every pregnancy and was one of the first symptoms I had before even getting a positive test.

• Feeling extra hungry? Reach for a high protein snack like this trail mix! It’s seriously so delicious (and vegan!).


Symptom #2: Gagging when brushing your teeth.

With each pregnancy, just putting s toothbrush in my mouth would make me gag. The toothpaste makes me gag. It’s everything about teeth brushing…. another weird but try sign that I was pregnant.


Symptom #3: Sinus issues.

It is very common in pregnancy to get sinus issues. For weeks I struggled with what felt like sinus infection early in this pregnancy. With my first i had these sinus problems at the end of pregnancy, also know as rhinitis.

But it typically lasts about 6 weeks and will often go away immediately after delivery. (That was my experience)

It’s nothing to be concerned about, but often a missed pregnancy symptom.

•Need a little relief? The only thing to help me is a Neti pot. It gave me SO much relief.

BONUS SYMPTOM: vivid Dreams

If you have never been pregnant before, let me warn you….your dreams are about to get CRAZY. Every pregnancy of mine I begin to dream intense, crazy real, and often scary dreams. Everything was weird things happening to the baby (I once had a recurring pregnancy dream where my baby would try getting out of my belly button…weird right!?) to dreaming about death or getting seriously injured. I would even dream crazy dreams about friends being pregnant and things happening to them.

PREGNANCY DREAMS ARE WEIRD. And the weird part is, I had these dreams before getting my BFP which was a clue that something was going on, considering I don’t typically have dreams that I remember.


Pregnancy symptoms are crazy and weird and different for everyone but these are some odd ones that you might also be having and not realizing it’s pregnancy related.
