It might seem odd, but if you’re experiencing some changes and you’re not sure what they mean, it’s possible that you’re pregnant. Some signs that this may be the case are tender or swollen breasts, being upset by certain smells, increased bathroom breaks, or different aches. If you think you may be pregnant, the best thing to do is to take a pregnancy test and consult with your doctor. Women who are trying to conceive often find themselves wondering if they’re pregnant when their period is late. There are a lot of pregnancy symptoms that can be easy to miss. However, there are also some more unusual symptoms that may occur in early pregnancy.
One early sign of pregnancy that can be easily missed is light bleeding. This can often happen in the early stages of pregnancy, and the new mom may mistake it for her normal monthly flow. It’s important to be aware of this sign, as it can occur around the same time as a typical period. Bleeding during pregnancy can be caused by several things, but one of the most common causes is when the fertilized egg implants itself in the uterus. This usually results in light bleeding or spotting. Unless a woman is already tracking her period or notices that her flow is much lighter than usual, she may not realize she is pregnant for a few more weeks.
It’s not uncommon for women to have to go to the restroom more frequently when they’re pregnant, but if it seems like a constant occurrence and you feel like the bathroom door ought to be revolving, something is probably up. And that something is more than likely a baby making its presence known discreetly. Frequent urination is probably one of the pregnancy signs that seems to last throughout the entire nine months, not just at the beginning. It’s perfectly possible to miss this pregnancy sign early on, as it can start just one or two weeks after conception. That’s much too early to have missed a period.
No one likes pregnancy symptoms, especially irritability. Sudden hormone adjustments are notorious for causing this, on top of other things like heartburn, nausea, and constant trips to the bathroom. It would make anyone cranky! The good news is that irritability usually fades during the second trimester. By the second trimester, the mother’s body has usually adjusted to the hormone surges and changes. The only “cure” is to be patient, eat well, and exercise safely. Getting plenty of rest is also crucial.
Being pregnant is only temporary, so being patient will go a long way in relieving some of the classic pregnancy symptoms.
