Signs & Symptoms of Pregnancy
Top Ten Pregnancy Symptoms
If you have any of these pregnancy symptoms, be sure to take an at home pregnancy test. It is important to receive prenatal care immediately, if the result is positive. Your doctor will tell you to take prenatal vitamins with folic acid in them as it can prevent some birth defects. Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman. See symptoms below :
1. Missed Menstrual Period
A missed menstrual cycle can be a sign of pregnancy. It is usually the first indicator of pregnancy, although some women claim to know they are pregnant before they miss a period.
2. Tender Breasts
Tender swollen breasts are another early symptom. While tender breasts are a symptom of an impending menstrual cycle, enlarged breasts are not. Sore and swollen breasts with a tingling sensation can be an early indicator of pregnancy.
3. Nausea and Morning Sickness
Nausea associated with morning sickness can be a sign that a woman is pregnant. Many women say that they've had nausea up to two weeks before an expected menstrual period and before any other symptom. Eating crackers before getting out of the bed in the morning can help with morning sickness and eating several smaller meals instead of larger ones can help with nausea related to morning sickness.
FAQ of Morning Sickness & Tips
Extreme fatigue can be another indicator of pregnancy, especially if other symptoms are present. A nap a day can help a pregnant woman maintain normal daily activities.
5. Frequent Urination
Frequent urination in pregnancy usually occurs between 6 to 8 weeks after conception.
Headaches in pregnancy are a common symptom and begin at about the 6th week. A quick nap can help prevent headaches while pregnant. Preeclampsia or toxemia can begin with headache and can be dangerous to a pregnant woman. If you are pregnant and have this symptom, be sure to call your health care provider immediately.
Spotting is common while pregnant. Some women report what seems to be a short light period before the onset of other symptoms. This may be implantation bleeding and not a menstrual period at all (when the egg implants itself into the lining of the uterus). If you are pregnant and you experience spotting check in with your doctor as spotting is also an indicator of miscarriage.
8. Light Headedness
Some pregnant women experience actual fainting and light headedness during early pregnancy.
Hormonal changes can affect the digestive system and cause constipation. Drinking plenty of water and exercising can help. A pregnant woman should ask her doctor for recommended exercises while pregnant.
Heartburn can be symptom in months 1-9. In months 1-4, heartburn is caused by hormonal changes. In months 5-9, the baby can cause pressure on a pregnant woman's organs. Eating frequent smaller meals and remaining in an upright position at least an hour after eating can help.
In pregnancy, with some fathers-to-be, it is difficult for them to understand the life that is within their mate. It is beneficial for the mother and father to be at the first ultrasound together as it seems to help fathers-to-be form a mental picture when they see movement of their baby on the ultrasound screen. Anticipation soon grows!
