Are You Familiar with Some Pregnancy Symptoms?
If you are thinking if there is a possibility that you are pregnant, the best way to know is to take a pregnancy test. But there are few early signs of pregnancy that can tell you that you are possibly pregnant.
The early signs of pregnancy among women
Every woman differs, especially when it comes to pregnancy experience. Not every woman experiences the same signs from one pregnancy to another. This is because early signs of pregnancy are similar to PMS and during the period. These are some of the most common early signs of pregnancy and you need to become familiar with those, so that you will know if you are pregnant or not through these signs.
Spotting and stomach cramps
Days after the conception, the fertilized egg fastens itself to the wall of the uterus. This can make the early signs of pregnancy like spotting and stomach cramps. This is called implantation bleeding and it happens from 6-12 weeks just after the fertilization of the egg. The cramps is similar to the menstrual cramps, so some mistakenly think that the bleeding for the start of the period. The bleeding and the cramps are not heavy though.
Aside from bleeding, a woman will notice a white and creamy discharge coming from the vagina. This is in lieu of the thickening of the walls of the vagina, which will start right after the conception. The growth of the cell linings in the vagina also causes the discharge. This may go on during the entire pregnancy, but this is harmless and it will not require treatment. But if you sense that there is a bad smell coming from the discharge or if there is a burning sensation. You can tell your doctor, so that he/she can check if you have a yeast or bacterial infection.
Changes in the breast
Tenderness of the breast is another sign of pregnancy. The hormone level of a woman changes quickly right after conception. This is because of the changes of her breasts that may grow into swollen and sore just after a week or 2. You may even feel breast fullness or it will feel tender when touched. The areola will also grow dark. There are still other things that can change the breast, but if the changes are not early signs of pregnancy, you need to accept that it may take weeks to get used to the new levels of hormones. The breast pain may ease up after sometime.
Feeling of tiredness
The feeling of tiredness is just normal in pregnancy. A woman may feel very tired just after conceiving. This is because it is usually linked to a higher level of hormone that is called progesterone, even if other things like lower levels of blood sugar, low blood pressure and boost in blood production.
When will pregnancy signs start?
Pregnancy may be confirmed by using a pregnancy test even before you missed out your 1st period cycle. It was observed that in some women, they are reported with signs as early as first week of conception and that may be different from the classic signs like vomiting.
