Early Signs And Symptoms Of Pregnancy
Have you noticed some changes with your body recently? If you have this could be an early indicator telling you, you are pregnant. Do not get too ahead of yourself as the best way to find out if you are pregnant if by taking a pregnancy test or speaking to your GP.
If you would like a better idea to know whether you are pregnant or not, I have listed the early signs and symptoms of pregnancy.
If you have a regular monthly menstrual cycle, the most reliable and earliest sign of pregnancy is a missed period. A missed period does not count as a day or two late, it will mean that your monthly cycle has completely missed a month.
However you should not rely on this sign as some women do continue to have periods through the early stages of pregnancy, for some women the blood is very light, but it is still there.
Morning sickness most commonly starts at around six weeks pregnant and will last until you are about 12 weeks pregnant. Morning sickness does not necessarily happen in the morning, you may feel sick at any time of the day.
Around 50% of women who are pregnant will experience vomiting from morning sickness during their pregnancy, and a further 3 in 10 women will experiences sickness, without actually vomiting.
If you are constantly feeling sick, you should contact your GP who will be able to take further tests.
If you are pregnant, your body will be going through huge hormonal changes; this can make you feel unusually tired. It is completely normal to feel exhausted through the first 12 weeks of pregnancy until your body makes the necessary changes.
You may notice some big differences with your breasts from early pregnancy, if they feel more tender than usual; this is a sign of pregnancy. The veins in your breasts sometimes become more visible and the nipples may stand out.
You may also notice a size difference with your breasts as they become larger during pregnancy.
You may find your body waking you up at all hours of the night as you will probably feel the need to urinate more often.
This will continue to happy during the course of pregnancy as more pressure is put on your bladder from your growing bump.
If you think you may be pregnant, it is important that you take a pregnancy test immediately so you can get the necessary medical assistance.
