Are you wondering if you might be pregnant? The best way to know whether you are pregnant for sure is by taking a pregnancy test or a b or a blood test. But there are early symptoms of pregnancy that may point to the possibility and see if any of them familiar.
Swollen and tender breasts
Soreness or tingling in breasts is one of pregnancy’s most common symptoms. Early in pregnancy breasts will fill out and change shape as they prepare to produce milk. Breasts may become very tender and sensitive for a few months as a result.
For many women, hormones can cause the areola, which is the circle around the nipples, to widen and darken during pregnancy. This occurs as the body prepares it self for breast feeding.
About five to 10 days after conception, some women notice light spotting when the embryo implants in the uterus. So if you’ve had a light period this month, you might still be carrying a little bundle of joy.
Urinary frequency and Constipation
This is the most common symptoms of the pregnancy that many women feel when you are pregnant. Your uterus presses directly on the bladder leading to more frequent urination. The added pressure and intestinal changes may also cause constipation.
Most of the women feel very tired early in pregnancy. In fact, fatigue is often one of the first signs of pregnancy. If you are pregnant, chances are you’ll start to feel less tired around week 12, when the placenta is fully formed.
Nausea is one of the most common side effects of pregnancy. It is caused by an increase in hormone levels
Any women have a heightened sense of smell during pregnancy. This symptom is one of the most common early signs that you could be pregnant.
Elevated basal temperature
If you have been tracking your basal temperature, a positive sign of pregnancy is an increase of about one degree that lasts for more than two weeks after the dip in temperature that indicates ovulation.
Feeling faint or dizzy
Shifting hormones, combined with the heart beating faster to pump more blood through the body can cause blood pressure to gradually decrease early in pregnancy. As a result many women experience periods of dizziness or feeling lightheaded.
The most obvious indicator of pregnancy is a missed period, but a missed period doesn’t always mean a baby is on the way. Stress, diet or an irregular schedule can also be the culprits, so it is best to get tested before making the big announcement.
Check out these symptoms and make an announcement. Congratulations.
