Early Pregnancy Symptoms
Of the many symptoms of pregnancy, the most common are usually missed periods and morning sickness. As women tend to lead busy lifestyles these days, a missed period could easily be overlooked as an indicator of another impending event like a visit from your monthly visitor.
Some of the symptoms of pregnancy that are commonly experienced by most women are one’s breasts swelling and getting tender. The nipples may become sore, darken in color or secrete colostrum (breast milk for breastfeeding). Some other common pregnancy symptoms include nausea and frequent vomiting which happens in between the first and fourth month of pregnancy.
Early pregnancy symptoms may make it difficult for the expecting mother to do daily tasks like shop or clean house. This can also be traced back to hormone levels rising due to lower blood glucose.
Morning sickness is one of the most dreaded signs of pregnancy. Some women do not experience it but some unlucky women can be nauseous all day long. If a woman vomits excessively, she may need to adhere to certain precautions in order to prevent complications due to malnutrition and dehydration because this symptom is closely associated with an increased awareness and aversion to odors. Pregnant women may also be especially attracted to, or repulsed by, certain types of food. These cravings could even continue after the pregnancy!
Pregnancy symptoms such as fainting, dizziness, heartburn, and constipation are often talked about. It is important that women who are pregnant eat frequent small meals and consume supplements of vitamins, folic acid and calcium. They must also ensure they have a well planned diet that includes generous helpings of fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, sprouts etc. A well planned diet can greatly help women suffering from heartburn and constipation
The symptoms of pregnancy include extra fatigue, food aversions or cravings, headaches and moodiness. You may have missed your period, or have noticed some unusual vaginal discharge but it’s important to note that vaginal discharge without itching and burning is normal in early pregnancy. If you experience any or all of these symptoms, it might be time to take an at-home pregnancy test. As exciting as this is for you as a couple, don’t get caught up in the hype and make sure that anyone who cares about you knows where you are going to be staying while waiting for results because if they’re negative they’ll need to know that the baby isn’t coming right away so they can visit with you! It’s better to visit with your doctor before taking any medications and supplements. Otherwise you might want to try taking up yoga or meditation so that your body may be prepared for a positive pregnancy by way of remaining stress-free throughout this time. It’s also important to stay aware of what the signs of early pregnancy are for if you haven’t experienced it before, especially since there cases in which symptoms manifest differently from woman to woman.
