“early” signs of pregnancy?

http://www.webmd.com/baby/features/8-early-signs-of-pregnancy?src=RSS_PUBLIC  this is a lay journal article from the respected webMD publishers..they supposedly interviewed doctors about early (first trimester) symptoms..i found the information inaccurate, based on my observation of over 1000 patients seen in early pregnancy..the most specific sign is BREAST tenderness..nausea and vomiting are common but unpredictable from one patient to another and from previous pregnancies…FATIGUE is very common..the observation of increased urinary frequency is later in pregancy as is SOB, food aversion and smell disturbance…change in the color of the CERVIX is called CHADWICK SIGN… noted in 5-10% of patients but rarely early in pregnancy!!
