6 Early Signs of Pregnancy That Could Also Mean You’re Just Hungover AF

It’s been a few weeks since you got busy and now you’re eager to know: am I pregnant or just hungover? You’ll need a home pregnancy test and a breathalyzer to know for sure, but until you can take one (the best time is when your period is late, with the alcohol still lingering in your system), familiarize yourself with these early signs of pregnancy and alcohol withdrawal.


You were so tired this morning, you couldn’t even make it to Jan’s class at Soul Cycle. If you’re suddenly exhausted, it might be a response to the increasing hormones in your body or the round of tequila shots you pounded even though you knew it was a bad idea. For many women, tiredness continues through the first trimester or the whole day after bar hopping.

Sore Breasts

Putting on your bra this morning felt like an exercise in mild torture. Tender and painful breasts can be a first sign that you’re pregnant or that you really did hurt yourself when you drunkenly ran into the bathroom door last night. Wear your most supportive bra or ice your bruised boobs to help ease discomfort.
