4 weeks pregnant: your body

Experiencing PMS-like symptoms?

You are in the fourth week of the first trimester of your pregnancy. This week more obvious pregnancy symptoms start to appear. This is normally around the time when you start to wonder am I pregnant? Should I take a pregnancy test?

The answer is yes, you should! If you take a home pregnancy test it will not only answer your question, but also leave you with that sense of relief that comes with knowing. Be warned that if the answer is negative you may want to try again the following week just to be sure, as your body needs to produce enough pregnancy hormones to make that second line on the pregnancy test appear.

Pregnancy symptoms

  • Nausea/Morning sickness – some women just feel nauseous, whereas others may be sick in the morning and in the night. Everyone is different!
  • You feel as if you have PMS
