Could I be pregnant? Here are some of the earliest symptoms women may notice.

One of the earliest symptoms is a change in the way things smell or taste, which may leave a metallic taste in your mouth called Dysgeusia.

It is a very debilitating pregnancy complication in which women suffer from dehydration, greater than 5% pre pregnancy weight loss, and other complications which require immediate medical care or hospitalization...
