Pregnancy Signs And Symptoms
If you have been tracking your period every month and you are usually pretty regular the absence of your period is a pretty good indicator that something is going on. Women who are not attempting to get pregnant and who are currently on birth control are certainly not immune to pregnancy as no birth control except for abstinence is fail-safe. Any missed period merits the purchase of a home pregnancy test, just to be sure.
During pregnancy there are so many wacky hormones shooting through a womans body that a lot of things change. A pregnant womans bladder needs to empty more often, particularly in the first and third trimester. Make sure you always know where a clean restroom is when youre out in public.
Creating a whole new being isnt easy work for a body so there is no surprise to the fact that pregnancy can bring with it sheer exhaustion, even early on. Try to indulge the urge to sleep whenever you can because once the baby comes you wont be getting nearly as much sleep as you can now.
If you walk into the grocery store and everything suddenly repulses you, it may be time to pick up a home pregnancy test along with your groceries. Although this feeling will eventually pass, many women say that the icky-smell problem is the one that tipped them off to being pregnant.
Some women never feel nauseous in early pregnancy, but instead want to eat everything in sight. It takes extra calories to build a baby, so this makes sense. Dont be shocked if you feel nauseous early on and then very hungry later in the pregnancy.
Body temperature is regulated differently in a pregnant womans body. Grabbing a jacket or fanning yourself while everyone else is comfortable can be an indicator that something is different in your body. Dressing in layers can help you if this becomes a constant issue through your pregnancy because you can add or subtract clothing as needs be.
Your breast gets bigger and they are probably a little sore too. This is only one change in a series of many which your breasts will go through during the pregnancy and throughout breastfeeding, should you choose to do it.
However for most women the earlier symptoms of pregnancy will ease of as the pregnancy progress and your hormones will settle down as the body get use to the changes in the body.
